ITALIA Day 3 (con't): Stairway to Heaven
We decided to head into town after relaxing by the pool and getting ourselves all cleaned up. Instead of relying on Sicily's amazing (sarcasm!) transportation options, we took the staircase from our hotel on the edge of where Taormina meets Castelmola. The view the entire way down was just amazing, you could see the ancient theater and a few of the pretty piazzas. Once down into town, we strolled around the streets in search of a restaurant recommended to us by our hotel. We found it and ate a lovely meal, smoked fish to start (why don't we have smoked swordfish in the States???), white wine and tagliatelle with big chunks of swordfish for my main (Stacy opted for seafood risotto chock full of frutti di mare). We left the restaurant feeling full but had to have our first taste of gelato before we headed back to the hotel, yum!
