Taormina, Sicily

From the port of Messina I took a tour that took us one hour away to Taormina, perched high above the sea on the slopes of Mt. Tauro, a town that has entertained celebrities and artists since the days of the Caesars. It was gorgeous! The view is amazing, you can see the ocean, beaches, and coastline below, and the active volcano Mt. Etna is close by. Our tour took us to the 3rd century Greco-Roman theatre with picturesque views of the blue Ionian Sea below. You could see the smoke coming from the volcano in the distance. Later I grabbed a Pistachio Gelato and wandered the streets lined with little shops and a few cafes. Taormina was a really nice place, and a great place to enjoy a holiday!
