Taormina is a beautiful area with amazing water and quite the climb to the top where there are views of Mt. Etna and the mainland of Italy.
A tribute to the prickly pear that grows everywhere on the island.
Caltagirone is a lovely town famous for it's pottery. We had a nice relaxing day there, besides the part where Amelia and I climbed the Staircase of Santa Maria del Monte that has 142 steps. The cool part is, each step is lined with a different hand made tile.
Even this duomo is made of tile.
Enthusiastic near the bottom.
Worth the great view at the top... she did it all by herself, with gusto! ; )
Enjoying cappuccinos, pastries and Hello Kitty chips.
