Day 5: rest day in Taormina

Today we don't need to pack and move on to another place. We spend in fact two nights here in Taormina and thus we have a chance to ride up and down the Etna. The morning sun greets us from the breakfast terrace but later on the mighty peak of Etna is surrounded by fog. 

In the evening we dine at a famous seafood restaurant in the village where they filmed the Godfather.

Day 4: Cefalù to Taormina 

After spending the night on the north coast today we are heading back east, closing thus our Sicilian loop. The morning ride is a cruise along the coast, followed then by a twisty ride across Park of Nebrodi. Our lunch is today at the feet of Etna, amidst dark rocky field of solid lava.

In the afternoon we roll along the coast north of Taormina, soaking in the picturesque gulf embracing Giardini Naxos.
