The following pictures represent some typical and atypical scenes from Italy’s island of Sicily. Separate pages present Northwest, Southwest, and Northeast and Southeast Sicily. The island has a vast array of ancient ruins scattered throughout and picture worthy subjects at every turn. Taormina on the east coast may be the most picturesque city we have visited in 20 years of international travel. Taormina is perched on a mountainside facing the Ionian Sea, and offers a little something for everybody.
