    The next couple of entries will be rather brief because we have been to them both on a previous cruise so we didn't do any special activities in Taormina. Last time we docked in Messina and were driven to Taormina which is just a touristy village set up high with fantastic views. This time we anchored at Taormina and used tender boats to port. The town is nestled at the foothills of Mt Etna which, as you can see from the photo, is smoking. I guess it is only a matter of time before Taormina goes the way of Pompeii, buried under a volcanic eruption. Brad and I just walked along the seafront which really wasn't the touristy area and stopped at a cafe to buy a gelati and use their WiFi (where I sent the last post from). Had a very short walk on their horrible pebbly beach but that was even worse than walking on very soft sand. After that we caught the tender boats back to the ship so it was a pretty uneventful day for us. Some people did the Godfather tour (afterall, this is Sicily) and said it was really enjoyable .Read more

    Lundi, 17 avril 2017
    Le palazzo di Citta et la chiesa San Stefano, saint patron de la ville, sont nos prochaines visites. Quelques achats dans les petits échoppes un peu cachées, nous permettent de remplir notre frigo. Il y a nettement plus d'églises à Acireale (100), aussi des bains thermaux et un Opera dei Pupi, spécialité de l'île, que des restaurants. Nous choisissons la Locanda degli Abbatazzi qui nous sert un menu poissons-fruits de mer sublime. Les prochains 35km à parcourir jusqu'à Taormina sont vite avalés et nous nous installons au camping Paradise à Letojanni, un emplacement au bord de l'eau nous y attend.Read more

    Das Hotel Olimpo thront hoch über dem Städtchen Letojanni. Das Hotel ist an den Hang gebaut. Um die Zimmer, Hotelhalle und das Restaurant zu erreichen, kann man eine kleine Seilbahn nutzen und überwindet so den steilen Hang.Read more
