... claim the tax back when you leave, similar to non Australians claiming the GST back before they leave Australia. Sue was interested in a ring, but decided the matte finish was not for her, so it stayed there, our bank balance better off! Other then the shops, the star attraction here is the Outdoor Greek theatre which dates back to around 500 AD. Hopefully the photos do it justice as it is stunning. It is still a working theatre, in fact Simple ...

... Opera is the number one form of live entertainment in Sicily and third overall in Italy. What was meant to be an hour trip turned into 2 very enjoyable hours of hurling around the streets of Palermo. After a quick lunch, back in the car for the 4 hour drive back to Taormina. Last full day tomorrow before we all part company on Saturday. Will stay local tomorrow and apart from seeing the town and taking the cable car there, might go for a boat trip around the area. Until ...

Early start to make the Ferrovia Circumennea train that goes around Mt Etna. We managed to find the train station thanks to Sue. After seeing us 4 passengers on the platform, we noticed that they pumped extra diesel into the train! At 9 we set off on a 114km journey which took just over 3 hours. The landscape contrasted from market gardens, vines, orchards to waste land of volcanic black basalt. It ...

... for a drive in the old island part of Siracusa, which had further ruins and old run down buildings. Then back to Taormina where I drove to give Neil a break. Decided not to take the cable car up the mountain, but stay at the Villa and swim, given we were all tired. Big day tomorrow when we attack Etna. At 3.3kms tall, you can see it from space! Looking forward to this. Hopefully will have photo's of tomorrow and the last couple of days up tomorrow. Until then, Ciao, ...
