This hotel was close to the train, staff were very helpful, with limited english (not a great concern for us). First impression is its old. The decor is gothic & antique. The room was a good size, the bed a little hard. The biggest down fall is the hotel had a really strong cigarette smoke smell, couldn't stay for more than one night. Breakfast was a simple coffee & croissant, but we were able to have it early before the train.

So we walked around that for about 1 hour and I loved it.
But after we walked down the main street and saw a wedding at a church.
It was weird because I have never seen one before?
And then on our way back home we got an ice-cream I had vanilla and chocolate that was good.
Today we drove to another town nearby and this town ...
Arriving in Taormina we encounter the dreaded traffic limitato sign, which we know that if you enter you will be fined.
So we entered…..
because our apartment was inside the zone.
After a few fast emails and calls to the host, googling and eventual confirmation from a cop we found out that the security cameras were not active.
Unless of course we find a fine in the mail in a years ...
