Spectacularly perched on the side of a mountain, Taormina is an achingly beautiful spot with gorgeous medieval churches, a stunning Greek Theatre, and sweeping views of the Gulf Naxos and Mt. Etna. It was an absolute joy to spend an entire day in this magical place wandering the many winding cobblestone streets and taking in the spectacular views from the Piazza IX Aprile. Our stop in Taormina coincided with Palm Sunday which provided us with an opportunity to participate in a religous procession in the Piazza del Duomo, a pretty square set around an ornate baroque fountain and home to the Duomo, a beautifully understated 13 century church. It was a very special day for everyone.
