Taormina might be a bit of a biased view, being all posh and cinqueterra-like, but man it just hit the spot in so many ways. The bus veered around the hairpin turns reminiscent of Hawaii, but with ancient stone instead of prehistoric trees. I walked around the narrow alleys to the public garden, which had a gorgeous view of a coastline that was reminiscent of Monaco.
Then to finish things off, I had lunch at a corner restaurant by myself and had one of Italy's delights - prosciutto and melon, and a pizza al funghi. I can't begin to describe the joy of eating prosciutto and melon! I finished off the whole plate in less than 4 minutes and had this vapid smile on my face the whole time, people must've thought I was on drugs.
Not surprisingly, when I see something beautiful, I think of my mom. She's the one I get my adventure from, my courage, and my occassional desire to be in the spotlight. Sicily is definitely a place I'd take her for a week, I think she'd really enjoy it =) There are so many little cafes, great shops, and breathtaking views. There are bands playing in the piazzo and gelato stores everywhere. I spoke to Chris in Vienna and apparently there are more ancient ruins in Taormino than in all of Greece! How fascinating, and how absolutely worthy of another trip that discovery is!!
