    • 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.

    • 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.

        • Hi Maria: I’ve just returned from Russia, where the cold is setting in, so 40 sounds lovely to me!
