When our cruise ship docked at Messina, Sicily region of Italy, the tour package we chose included some free time to explore the charming little town of Taormina before heading back to the ship. Although it is never enough time to really explore the area, it is the favorite part of a trip for me.
Our cruise was fabulous, but as this type of travel goes there is never enough time, and too many people to really enjoy what the place has to offer. But especially the first time that I have traveled to an area, I like to take a cruise and the crowded tours, because I don’t want to go there and not have seen some of the famous sites. This type of travel also gives me information on places I would like to visit again, and spend more time.
Here is what Daren, my husband did while I was exploring the shops in Taormina.
Here are some pictures he took of the area around where he was waiting.
Oh, and shopping… this is what I got.
