Holiday Snapshots: Taormina

Spent the last 2 days in the beautiful sea-side town of Taormina which is a small town situated along the east coast of Italy.

The drive from Catania to Taormina was rather treacherous. The tiny and winding roads definitely tested the Man’s driving skills while I just sat behind shutting my eyes and praying that we don’t do too much damage to our rented car.

But when we arrived into this bustling tourist town, we were greeted by this amazing view!

The town is pretty compact with a couple of key attractions that we covered within the next day.

One of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily is the Teatro Greco famed for its remarkable preservation and beautiful location.

One can only imagine how grand and magnificent this theatre must have been before it was ruined.

Next, we took a boat ride out to visit the famed blue caves.

I’ll let the rest of the pictures do the talking for it was simply breath-taking!

Looking at the clear blue waters made us almost wished we brought our diving gear so that we could check out what lies beneath those azure blue sea. But we didn’t of course.

And now we are on to our final leg of our Sicily trip for the next 2 days in Palermo. It does look pretty interesting and I can’t wait to share with you all. So stay tuned! πŸ˜‰
