Mt Etna and Taormina




Our B&B, Massalargia, is on the south side of Etna, at an elevation of about 520m. We drove around to the north-east for the closest approach to the summit. We got up to 1800m or so, where the road runs out (or appears to) near lookout points or ski-fields.







Taormina


Less than 45 minutes drive down to the coast is Taormina, seen from the highway thus.





The Greek Theatre has distractingly wondrous views.



I'm a statue! I'm a statue!




Views along the coast to the north and south.
