Postcards from Taormina

Taormina is a lovely town in Sicily that is just what you envision when you think about a little old town in Sicily.  Granted, Taomina is extremely croweded during high season but beautiful.  A stroll down the picturesque streets you will definitely understand why this was the go to destination for over a couple of hundreds of years.  They are lined with medieval buildings and stunning views of the sea.

Here are just a few pictures from our day in Taormina.
