Our port today is Catania Sicily….we opted to take a bus to Taormina, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. The town is perched on a terrace overlooking the sea. A really beautiful city where you can get great views of Mount Etna and the coastline.
We visited the Greek Theatre Ruins and had delicious gelato. Amazing flavours, you cannot even imagine the choices…..nutella, lemoncillo, Oreo, black cherry….amazing. Everywhere you looked were lovely little alleys filled with shops and cafes with steps up or down the terraces.
It was about a 45 minute drive by bus and the traffic was horrendous, just like rush hour at home, lucky for us in the opposite direction. They said that a lot of celebrities from the 30’s , 40’s and 50’s visited here as it was The place to go.
Mount Etna is Europe’s largest active volcano, 6400 feet above sea level.
