Historic Taormina

The Duomo - dated back to the 13th century where a local wedding ceremony took place at this particular moment 

Lemons and oranges - widely produced and the flavours are beautiful, must be all the sunshine it gets all year round 
Street views of Taormina town centre 
Giardini della Villa Comunale
Florence Trevelyan - designer of Giardini della Villa Comunale
Beautiful view of the bay from Giardini della Villa Comunale
Teatro Greco - Il Volo performing at the Ancient Greek theatre, the theatre originally started its life in the 3rd Century BC, it's amazing to think that this theatre were hosting performances of works by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes. Originally quite small, it was enlarged by the Romans to accommodate their own particular brand of theatrical extravaganza. During daytime, the views from the theatre are spectacular, taking in a (usually) smoking Mount Etna and the Bay of Naxos down below, source here). It was an amazing performance by Il Volo, a very talented classical pop group at the start of their careers!
