Village of Taormina, Sicily, Italy


Combining my love of charming villages and ruins made Taormina a perfect tour for me!

Getting there along the coast was half the fun!

The village off in the distance had me licking my chops!

The village was the definition of charming – cute flower boxes all over the place, interesting decorative elements, inviting shops, cafes…I could have spent hours just walking along the cobbled streets taking an unbelievable number of photos. Oh, wait, I did!

The ancient theater was magnificent. It is called Teatro Greco, but the ruins are primarily Roman, as the Romans rebuilt the theater on top of the remains of the Greek Theater.

I really hated to leave – I could have stayed a LOT longer than we did!
