Taormina

Taormina

We got up late, ate, and walked up to the ancient Greek theatre. This required a pretty long uphill walk, including a long stairway. The theatre faces south, which is a traditional for Greek theatres in Sicily. You can climb all the way to the top of the rear, which unveils beautiful vistas of the area around Taormina. The theatre is used to this day for performances during the summer.

We found an internet point on the way to the theatre

We had a very good lunch at Ristorante ‘a Zammara – I’d highly suggest it for either lunch or dinner.

And we walked around and shopped – a lot!
