About Catania, Sicily

Steep, rugged Sicily had bred a race of fierce, funny and passionate people. From this important port, drive up the coast to visit Taormina. First Greeks, then Romans used this as a place of worship and reward. View the temples and the theater, Mt. Etna in the distance, or take a stroll and shop in the little village before you leave.

Important to note that the beaches don't open until June 1st of the year. When we got off the ship, we asked the cab sand girl if a cab could take us to a local beach with restaurants, umbrellas, loungers, etc. and she said there were tons of options at Lidi beach and that someone there could call us a cab to get back to the ship. So we hopped in a cab and he dropped us off at a place that looked like it would be good. We walked in and it was a ghost town. It looked like it had been abandoned for years. We finally found someone down at the beach and asked what was going on because all the beach restaurants and bars were closed. We were told the season didn't start until June 1. So we finally found someone who would call us a cab, all in all it was a waste of the day and €45.

Our guided tour was cancelled due to low participation so we were on our own. This city was very dirty and in sore need of restoration. We found no one speaking English at all.

Trip to Taormina was great. Ampitheater is cool and the views are the best in Sicily. They have many shops on the way up and down also. Another great place where we did not get nearly enough time.
