Taking Taormina

... the foot of the Italian mainland clearly, amazing. After a lovely lunch, we took the cable car back down to the coast and a taxi home, as it was siesta time, so no bus for a couple of hours. We rested up for tea, which as usual was terrific, especially a mussel and clam dish in a seafood broth which was to die for! We go our separate ways tomorrow, the Mossops to Positano, and us to Venice, both of us flying out within 10 minutes of each other. Until ...

... Opera is the number one form of live entertainment in Sicily and third overall in Italy. What was meant to be an hour trip turned into 2 very enjoyable hours of hurling around the streets of Palermo. After a quick lunch, back in the car for the 4 hour drive back to Taormina. Last full day tomorrow before we all part company on Saturday. Will stay local tomorrow and apart from seeing the town and taking the cable car there, might go for a boat trip around the area. Until ...

... seems to shut between 1.30 and 3.30pm each weekday for siesta! It is a good time to drive as the roads are not so busy! We then to another town further along the coast ( the road and exit was built between two mountains with the roads some 200 metres above the ground...amazing to see, and a good example of the road infrastructure the Italians have spent on the autostrades. Have never seen some many tunnels and bridges to keep the roads straight as possible). ...

Early start to make the Ferrovia Circumennea train that goes around Mt Etna. We managed to find the train station thanks to Sue. After seeing us 4 passengers on the platform, we noticed that they pumped extra diesel into the train! At 9 we set off on a 114km journey which took just over 3 hours. The landscape contrasted from market gardens, vines, orchards to waste land of volcanic black basalt. It ...

Sizzling Siracusa

Well bloggers, today was a hot one in more ways than one. Sicily showed it can dish up some heat...42C it got to today, right about the time we were walking through the ancient ruins at Siracusa. Day started rather late as Neil had a couple of things to attend to, so down towards the south of Sicily we went via the auto strad (freeway). It still took us around 90 minutes to travel some 100 kms (via Catania) to get there. Thank heavens the air con in the Volvo is good, ...
