TAORAMINA - DAY 10
Six of us hired a driver to take us to the town of Taormina on our first full day in Syracuse.
Mt Etna did us a great favor by erupting with a spout of smoke to entertain us on the way.
The view changed continuously as we drove north along the highway near the eastern coast.
Taromina lies on the slopes of Mt Tauro almost at the border of the province off Catania. Greek in origin, it grew up in the fourth century B.C, with a beautiful view overlooking the Ionian coast with Mr Etna as a backdrop.
Parking outside the city wall, the fist thing we encountered was a vegetable stand.
Passing through the city walls into the city of Taormina we peeked into this church with lovely purple stone pillars.
Since motorized vehicle were prohibited with the town, we saw the postman's transportation parked momentarily along side of a building.
