This was one of our favorites and we arrived early before the crowds....how nice! Taormina is settled on a hill overlooking two beautiful bays. The view from the Greco Ampitheatre is grand, the town is charming and the bakery....well you see how good that looks! Back in Messina we witnessed a demonstration of college students. As the ship pulled out it was fun to watch a pilot come aboard to steer us through the narrow Messina Straits. Scary job, I think. Headed back to Rome and we passed the volcanic island of Stromboli. This makes us want to return to Sicily - our time here was too short.
