Taormina, Italy is a quaint little town to just walk around on your own. You start on one end and walk all the way to the other, until you reach the grand theater. I spent most of my time at the theater because it offered spectacular views of the blue mediterranean waters with the ship drifting peacefully in the background.
This is an nice view of the theater from the back.
I did a lot of climbing up and down those steps! I tried to shoot from all angles and had to work around the sun - and the ship drifting. I was there in August of 2008 and it was very hot.
Little shops line the streets to and from the theater.
Love the blue hues of the Mediterranean.
