Taking Taormina

Well, last full day in Sicily, so off to visit the town we have based ourselves at. We are down near the coast, but the old town itself is 200 metres high up a very winding, steep road. It is an old Sicilian town with narrow streets and plenty of shopping, both low and high end. Reason for the high end is that other than airports, it is on of the few places you can buy expensive items without having to pay the VAT if you are a non EC person. Usually you ...

Tuk Tuks in Palermo

... about doing a "tour" around Palermo for a few Euro! After some bartering, we decided to take an "alternative" tour of the sights of Palermo. Wow, what a tour, down very narrow streets, which we had no idea where we were...could have been off to an organ donation centre! Saw a few markets, including seafood, meat, goods etc. The churches were a surprise. You can see the Arabic influence in the city and churches, some of the design and work was stunning. The opera house is ...

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. This is when we first noticed ...

... 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 ...

Sizzling Siracusa

... 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, ...
