My wife and I visited Taormina on our cruise vacation last week. This "street" was notably narrow, even for us who live in Europe! To provide a sense of scale, I have a shot with people climbing the steps, which I will post when I have the time to sort through our images
Bob. I missed this, both the image and the street . It is certainly good to see that the "The Narrowest Street in Sicily" has a bar. What did it look like with the neon Bar sign turned on(if you happened by at night ) . Cheers, Tom
I don't think Sicily is different than any other country, plenty of bars. I did not go by at night. I wish I had had time to just walk all the way up to see what else was there.It has been 10 years since I visited Sicily before. I had never been to this area, in fact anywhere on the east coast, but it is obvious that Sicily is suffering in the economic downturn, especially places like Palermo where I have been before. Crime is up and the streets are dirtier. In fact in Palermo, one of our party was mugged 3 blocks from our hotel, as we walked single file. He was on the end of the line. The mugger got nothing, but our guy got a bit bloodied as he fought the guy off.
