Travel Diary | Sicily


I've just returned from a family trip to Sicily and so I thought that I would share some pictures from my past week. There were quite a lot of us this year and the weather was extremely hot (40+) on a couple of days so we mostly stuck to the beach. On the times that we did brave the heat, we visited Taormina which is a beautiful clifftop town with some stunning views of the Mediterranean sea and the volcano, Mount Etna too. 

━━━Ancient Greek Theatre━━━
The ancient Greek theater which looks out to sea and Mount Etna in the background is truly something special. It was built in the 3rd century BC but was renovated by the Romans some time later. It's still used for performances now and has people coming from all over the world to visit.

━━━━━Villa Comunale━━━━━ 
Villa Comunale is my favourite part of Taormina and looks really beautiful at all the times of the year. It was owned by a Florence Trevelyan, a British woman until she died about 100 years ago and since then, has been open to the public. It's the perfect place to wander around for a break from the hot sunshine and to look at views of the beaches below. 

━━━━━Beach & Pool━━━━━━
The beach is pretty much my favourite place ever and it's even better when the sun is shining and you have a beautiful view in front of you! I've been coming to this beach since I was a child with my family and this year was no different. We also spent some time at my aunt's house in her pool which was welcome as the temperature was about 42 degrees. However, the beach will always be my number one!


Thanks for reading :)

Have you ever been to Sicily?
