Taormina


Day 9

Taormina is a beautiful cliff side city with the most impressive views overlooking the Ionian Sea.

The week before we arrived in Sicily the G7 summit was actually going on in Taormina.

We began our day by taking a walking tour of the city with our local guide, Franco.  The highlight of the walk was the tour of the Greek Theater.

That afternoon the kids decided it would be a good day to go swimming.  Instead of taking the cable car down the mountain we (rather stupidly) decided to walk to Isola Bella. The water was cold and the rocks were hard, but what a picturesque beach.

For dinner we learned how to make pizza and ate a delicious meal with the whole group.
