A couple of Days in the Sun

09/07/2013 - After our 11 hour journey on the ferry from Naples to Sicily we arrived early morning in Catania Sicily. The boat ride was surpisingly flat and we managed to get a good few hours sleep (Kate stretched out over 3 chairs and Glen on the ground). We needed to get from Catania to Taormina which was about 45 minutes and were going to get …

ETNALAND!!!

... there before...... the soles of our feet were raw by the end of the day!!

Lia had an absolute ball - she'd been counting down sleeps for months.... Nuka also had a blast but seemed to wane in the middle of the day, she's developed some sort of allergy and has a rash all over her face.... Being in the sun all day hasn't helped I'm afraid.....

It's our last night at Etna Mare, sadly, tomorrow we pack up and head South......

... lunch and Lia found me a pumice stone, which I intend bringing home....

Later that evening, after the requisite siesta, we set off to Linguaglossa to a few places that Seņora recommended: Bar Le Palme for granite and l'Alhambra pasticceria for a local pastry delicacy made of pistachio, almonds or hazelnut. While we were walking around, I was struck again by the groups of ...

... the end of siesta, or so we thought.....

Again, we parked at the foot of the town and set off on foot to look for pistachio delicacies and a toilet for Lia. Fifteen minutes later, it became apparent that this town didn't wake up until 4.30, and Lia's increasingly high-pitched enquiries as to the closest toilet made me start looking down narrow alleyways for a covered spot. Eventually, we found the only open bar, frequented only by old men, and dashed ...

... about 22 people altogether and 13 of them were Australians. We then went to the hotel restaurant and had a beautiful 3 course dinner with everyone. The first course was pasta meatballs extremely delicious. The second course was a veal roll with a spinach roll coated in almonds and this to was delicious followed by fruit salad. We had an enjoyable evening getting to know some of the people. Off to bed now as we have to be up at 6.15am tomorrow. ...

    Simple Accommodation in Pricy Taormina

    Very friendly and helpful staff, and a decent location only a short walk from Taormina's main pedestrian strip. Simple and clean accommodation with a good rooftop patio. I can't say it's great value because Taormina is a very expensive place to stay, but it's probably a relatively decent value for this town.

    Charming

    from

    When we pulled up to the hotel we were impressed by this little charming hotel. The owner couldnt be more accommodating and gave good advise on getting around. The terraces are lovely with a fantastic view. The furniture could have used a little sprucing up but I would'nt hesitate to stay there again.

    Forget about breakfast!

    from

    Basically the rooms were nice, however the breakfast was so disappointing, prepare yourself for the most unappetising concotion ever! We were given one bread roll and a couple of jam spreads. Staff (female) were very unfriendly and pretended not to speak English even though they managed to converse earlier perfectly well when we tried to request our "continental breakfast". What a shame as this hotel had such potential. Eat outside the hotel for breakfast if you need to eat something substantial as it really was not enough. And don't try to reason with the staff as they appear to get very offended even if you offer any constructive feedback. You have been warned.....

    Nice 2-Star w/ Ocean View

    from

    We stayed at Hotel Condor at the beginning of Sept (2004). This is a nice, 2-star budget hotel. It is definitely 2-star quality, but clean with nice staff. What makes it above average is the view. We had an ocean view room. The room was small-medium sized (based on the size of the average European hotel room). The bathroom, and the shower, were quite small, but it helped that there was a removable shower faucet. A/C is included. It is a little bit of a walk up a hill, a little out of the way, but nothing is too far away given the size of Taormina. The main stretch is probably the equivalent of 2-3 blocks away. We didn't have a car, but they have parking, which I think can be hard to come by in Taormina. Breakfast is on a pretty terrace with ocean views, it consists of bread, juice and a hot drink. There is internet access but we didn't use it, we were told you buy some sort of a card for 6 euro for internet use, but I'm not sure how much time that gives you. Overall it's a nice budget hotel with great views.

    Idylic stay

    from

    A very pleasant surprise and wonderful three days. We did not want to leave. We were traveling on a budget for four weeks with our two teenage boys, (a contradiction in terms) so we had many comparatives: this was our favorite hotel. We found that the room we had booked was really a suite with two bathrooms and a very large room that was separated by sliding doors. The location in town was excellent, a block or so off the main drag so it was quiet, but very close to the amenities, sights, and the funicular. (the town itself is beautiful). The views from the roof-top terrace (which was spacious and quiet with lots of deck and lounge chairs) were gorgeous both during the day and in the evening. Breakfast was served on another terrace just below the roof-top one and with the same breathtaking views, an amazing way to start the day. The owners and staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, excellent hosts, all spoke at least a little English. They took a personal interest in the guests and always went way beyond expectations. Internet on site was a very useful feature.
