Well, last full day in Sicily, so off to visit the town we have based ourselves at. We are down near the coast, but the old town itself is 200 metres high up a very winding, steep road. It is an old Sicilian town with narrow streets and plenty of shopping, both low and high end. Reason for the high end is that other than airports, it is on of the few places you can buy expensive items without having to pay the VAT if you are a non EC person. Usually you ...

After a good nights sleep and a full breakfast, we were well fuelled for our trip to Palermo, which we was 80kms from where we were staying. Uneventful drive until we hit the town itself.

Problem was the streets got narrower and narrower, with yours truely driving! We made our ...

... in making visibility hard. It was also very very very cold, close to zero...unbelievably given it was 32 down at sea level only some 15 minutes away! I am glad we went up, as this volcano is such an important feature and part of Sicily. Back to Taormina for some tea, before onto the Villa. Off to the north part of the island tomorrow, so probably no blog tomorrow,as we may stay overnight up there. ...

... during the summer months, holding some 3,000 people (7,000 before part of it was destroyed ), for opera's now. The backdrop over the bay is terrific, which was a common theme will all Greek theatre's. This one here is apparently one if the best preserved examples in the world. There was also on ruins of buildings, a roman theatre and a huge man made cave where the stone excavated was used for the amphitheatre. This was impressive and was fun acoustically. After this ...
