Sicily by way of Messina

Our first trip to Sicily a few years ago was a stop in Taormina.  It's a much better choice for first timers with its amazing views from the Greek/Roman Theater of Mount Etna and the sea.  The town is small with shops and restaurants lining the hilly streets.  In one shop we bought a kitchen clock that some Sicilian potter had made with a ring of colorful fruit painted on it.
