I do not think I shall ever forget the sight of Etna at sunset; the mountain almost invisible in a blur of pastel grey, glowing on the top and repeating its shape, as though reflected, in a wisp of grey smoke with the whole horizon behind radiant with pink light, fading gently into a grey pastel sky. Nothing I have seen in Art or Nature was quite so sublime.

Paul Theroux

Etna Sunset

The wanderer returns from a wonderful summer (late autumn) break in Sicily. The weather and views were perfect. I love this fascinating view from my hotel room in Taormina.

      You would love the dining experiences in Taormina. So many restaurants for you to experience and review :-)

      Mr C agree on the top three dining experiences, although we have them in a different order, for different reasons :-)

      I searched for the quote to accompany my photo :-)

      The photo is leading up to the travel diaries of my recent holiday. I am still editing the photos to accompany the posts.
