For our first three weeks in Sicily we had the pleasure of staying at the coolest hotel ever!

Cool things:

1. Complementary Coffee Bar in the Lobby - free cappuccinos and caffe macchiatos anytime!
2. The friendliest staff anyone could ask for, they are my new Italian friends that I go shopping and hang out with
3. Genuinely nice management - the last weekend we were there the owners took all of the guests, past and present, to Taormina for sightseeing and pizza, just because they love it there and thought we needed to go

Taormina was a beautiful city! I was told before I left the states that it is the La Jolla of Sicily, and they were right.

Here are some of the sights of the evening:

View of Taormina from Giardini Naxos

The Ionian Coastline

View of Mt. Etna and sunset from Giardini Naxos

City Gate in Taormina

The other side of the City Gate

Random ruins near the bus stop, I couldn't decipher the sign as to what they were, maybe I'll email a picture of the sign to Jenn for translation...

Musicians at the Pizzeria

Everyone enjoying the music after a delicious meal

Even though it is nice to now be moved into our own place, I will definitely miss our hotel. It really did feel like home, even if it was only a few weeks.

More to come later about our new apartment...
