Messina-Taormina-Sicily, Italy

July 28, 2018

Today John, Nano and I decided to grab a taxi, and I need to let everybody know that you need to be aware that some of the taxi drivers there will try and rip you off.  We almost got ripped off, but luckily we spoke to another taxi driver, and he gave us a good price.

Another thing you need to be careful about is that all the drivers will tell you they speak English until you start driving and start asking questions. Unfortunately, we ended up with a taxi driver that barely spoke any English and drove like a nut.

The first place we went to was Taormina which was a nice little town afterward we went to Castelmola which was nice. The next stop was this cool gorge called Gole Alcantara it also had a waterfall afterward we went back to the ship.

Follow us on our journey the next destination is Positano, Italy.

Second Visit to this port on the same cruise – We did four back to back cruises and we visited 29 different ports so we were happy to spend a day on the ship. We decided since we were already at the same port we would stay on the ship and relax.

Follow us on our journey the next destination is Corfu, Greece.
