    Perfect representation of this whole town

    This town is the crappiest town in the Western world I've ever visited, and the hostel is a microcosm of that. Seems like it could be great if anyone cared enough to keep it up. Nobody cares, and it rots away. Don't stay here, but better yet--don't come to this city.

Hosting (another) ancient roman theater this one was pretty special considering its Mediterranean views from the cliff top. The ladies had a lovely afternoon in the local leather goods store (some vegetarians). After some more Aranchini we headed back to camp as our Sicilian adventure had ended. We got back to the ferry and again ended up in our adopted Nonna’s front yard for the ...

The unlucky one would fall into the pit which would be filled with water and crocodiles or a wild animal. These sort of games no doubt came from Rome where this sort of fighting was seen as the best form of ...

    ... it to their liking with concrete, roman brick, and the ornate Corinthian columns. I feel it showed how Romans believed their ideas were the best so they completely redid the decorations set forth by the Greeks. The Romans were known for loving their events in theaters and arenas. Once in Sicily, this tradition did not end. I'm sure they redid this theater to give Romans there the same taste of what they had in ...

As the ceiling domed down, it was surrounded by mosaics depicting the stories of the Old Testament beginning with God creating the world and continuing on in the story. On the outside edge of the rectangle (naves), are mosaics depicting the miracles of Jesus. Lots of gold was used in the mosaics. The columns of the church are all different ...

    ... it for later.

    Andrea made another call and reserved a bed at ‘A casa di ami’ for 20 Euro a night, the same tariff as Hostel Taormina, and gave me great tips on day trips from out of Palermo. She was an extremely helpful person, going out of her way to provide bus schedules and directions.
