Today was similar to yesterday so I won't bore you with the same details. Today was Kenny's grandfather's funeral. His mind was busy with knowing he was not there, we talked it through and he spoke to Jen which made it a little better.

Later in the week I moved on to Taormina, a city settled by the Greeks, on the otherside of Etna. I was the only one at my hostel, run by an old Italian man who was the most Italian Italian I've ever met, think Mario, the Godfather and the Dolmio guy rolled into one.

I went to a castle (toured that for a solid hour +); went to at least 5 churches; 3 different street markets; went to all the near piazza's, peering into shops; and now I was enjoying the weather.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel el Jebel Taormina
Everything about this hotel is amazing. The bed is a little hard but besides that the service has been wonderful, the staff is great, and we are sad to leave tomorrow. It is in a great location and the complimentary breakfast is delicious in the beautiful restaurant! The rooftop has chairs to relax with great views and on the 2nd floor there is a little terrace that i used for exercising.The staff had seen me exercise each morning which made for a nice conversation. Everyone was so lovely, friendly, and helpful!!!
I recommend this to anyone who likes a 5 start quality hotel! Thank you!
