Even at the back of the amphitheatre, you felt you we're right at the stage, very personal. All Greek amphitheatre's have a great backdrop, this one is no exception...Mount Etna!

Unfortunately, the weather ...
... cakes (some of which went back to the ship with us). At around 4pm some of the clothing shops opened and restaurants were getting ready for dinner - what a shame, we had to get back to the ship.
