Taormina

We flew from Florence to Catania on Alitalia (a more comfortable airline than US Airways), towards the end of which we could see Mount Etna out our windows!  We then took a bus along the coast to beautiful Taormina, where we visited the Greek theater—an odd theater with a raised seating area and later Roman phases.  What a view from there, including of the mainland toe of Italy!  We also explored the town of Taormina (and I got a cannoli) before checking in to our hotel, which has fabulous views of the Mediterranean.  For dinner we ate at a trattoria in town and had pasta pomodoro (of course :-)), veal scallopini, and ice cream.  Tomorrow we are off for Syracuse.
