Kathy's Italy Visit

Kathy and friends traveled to Sicily. They resided at a beautiful Sea-front Villa in Taormina.

The Villa is set on one of the most sought after pieces of coast in Sicily and the cable car to the centre of Taormina is a couple of minutes walk away. With its stylish design, large terraces, sweeping views of the Ionic coasts of Sicily and Calabria and easy access on foot to the beach and a selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
