1994 was the first year Anne and I visited Sicily in the spring.
Our base was Giardini Naxos.From there we visited Taormina and Etna.
Recent lava flow on Etna.
Before the ascent- the warm and easy bit!
Brrrrrrr. It's easy to forget Etna is over 3000 metres high. It can be
wonderfully warm in Taormina and bloody freezing here!
This is near the Torre del Philosofo, 500 metres from the summit.
Etna from the Teatro Greco, Taormina.
