Syracuse is really beautiful! Did you also visit the Greek Theater in Taormina?
I did Maria, and though in general I preferred Syracuse to Taormina, I thought the amphitheater in Taormina was much more stunning than the one in Syracuse.
Beautiful!!! And you were there on such a gorgeous day.
Hi Lauren: Thanks. I was SO lucky with the weather this past spring in Italy. I can’t remember even a single day of rain.
It is very hot in Sicily! Today almost 40°C and we should be in Autumn!
Hi Maria: I’ve just returned from Russia, where the cold is setting in, so 40 sounds lovely to me!
