Palermo is rich with monuments and royal palaces, amidst the bustle of the 21st-century lifestyle. The wine enthusiast will enjoy a first full day of wine tasting in the Palermo city limits. Catania, another Sicilian city, is famous for pottery, lava stone works and the Napoli family puppets. The village of Taormina has breathtaking views because of its location 200 meters above sea level, overlooking the Ionian Sea. Over the centuries, Taormina has fascinated wretched poets, writers and restless painters who decided to put down roots here. Some pilgrims were inspired by the beauty, others by the unique, refreshing climate that makes it seem like it is always springtime. Salute!
