On arrival at Port we left the ship with Matt and Rina from Chicago and Kim and Jeff from Radnor, Pennsylvania and were pleased to be greeted by smartly dressed (with shades and black jacket) degree educated linguist, Anton Sacca our driver for the day from Sicily Limousine.
Shaking Anton’s hand it was clear that we had made the right choice of transportation for the day.
He drove us first to Giardini Naxos where we looked as the fishing boats in the port and marvelled at the clear blue sea and the fishes swimming in the harbour. From there we went to a viewpoint overlooking Isolabella an Island in a bay below Taormina.
From there we drove to the top of a nearby peak to reach the village of Castelmola.
Leaving Castelmola we drove down to Taormina Town.
2 days before we arrived Etna had erupted.
