De Maupassant on Taormina

"Should you only have one day to spend in Sicily and you ask me 'what is there to see?' I would reply 'Taormina' without any hesitation. It is only a landscape but one in which you can find everything that seems to have been created to seduce the eyes, the mind and the imagination."

--Guy de Maupassant, 1885, from "Towards the Golden Skies," diary of a journey.

Hi Maryellen,
I am new to your blog and was just having a read through when I came to this short post. I was lucky enough to live in Taormina last year and it really is just beautiful. Have to go now - have some more reading to do!
