I am in love...

With Sicily that is! Just back from 5 days in Taormina and suffering from a severe case of post-trip doldrums.

I know that Taormina has its (full) share of tourists and can get pretty crowded when those cruise ships come in, but it is also beautiful, rich in history and architecture, full of good food (more to come on that subject), glamorous and a perfect base for exploring one of Italy's most interesting regions.

More notes soon, but in the meantime, enjoy a few photos from paradise...

It's our 5th "taste" there and it never fails to impress us! :)

I cannot wait to see more about your trip here in Sicily! It was a pleasure meeting up with you and we look forward to September!

View from Villa Schuler, not to shabby... :)

I like the new format... very pretty!

Haven't been to Sicily yet. One day - probably not soon. Looks sunny!

It was nice to briefly meet you in Florence.

It is so beautiful I could cry! Have you been to Cefalu?

Megan in Liguria said...

We were in Cefalu our last trip. Would like to return there next year!
