After a 4 course lunch with local wine we headed up to Crateri Silvestri which erupted last in 1896. The towns below were mist shrouded and the temperature was close to zero.

Hotel not too hard to find with the help of Google. Older property with bright blue walls and red ...

Not really being opera buffs we couldn't help but appreciate the incredible skill and talent required to sing opera. We will always have fond memories of our stay in Taormina...next it's off to Malta we ...
