At sea

Our first at sea day time to do nothing. Breakfast on the deck at Cabana's then everyone had various appointments throughout the day. Pedicures, massages, photo shoot with Elsa and Anna all interspersed with the spa, pool, coffee, lunch... We passed by the smoking Mt Stromboli and stood on the bow as we passed through the straits of Messina between Italy and Sicily. As the day progress it was increasingly difficult to find a seat on the deck, particularly one out of ...

The opera house is ...

Inland is fairly sparse and unorganised, with lots of unfinished building and "rubbish" lying around. But every now and then you find a couple of gems. One place we went to was an old fort type building, the courtyard set up for a wedding. The town itself had a long beach (pebbles), and was clean and tidy with wide streets.

... a working passenger train for all the towns around the mountain. Eventually we got to Catania, the end of the line. We caught a normal train back to our where we thought our car was, but it was one station away from where we needed to be. A local couple rescued us and took Neil and I to our car and showed us the way back, which we would never have found, probably stranding the girls back at ...
