A long cruise - Messina, Sicily - part 4
We're off of Etna and on our way back to Messina and the comfort of our ship, Holland America's Maasdam.
Our last stop is the resort town of Taormina (population11,000). I would guess that this would be a better experience during the summer; there just was nothing special for me in the town.
However, we were there, time to explore. One of the big draws to the the town is a Greek Theatre. Several of us in our Cruise Critic group hiked up there and left immediately - not open.
This photo was taken on our way back into the center of town. I found it interesting that a vendor had put out his merchandise in the hopes of making a sale. Where is he? There were very few visitors in town when we were there.
