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.
