Gelato, Gelato!


Saturday, July 20, 2013
Once again, we woke up too late to try the breakfast at our hotel. We ventured out around lunchtime and decided we really needed to try something else other than lemon sugar crepes to start the day. We took a seat at an outside cafe and decided to give the cafe the bruschetta test. This particular establishment did not get a passing grade on our bruschetta quality scale. After our meal, we explored more of Taormina and found parts of the town we had not yet visited. More shops, even more restaurants, a couple of town squares, a church or two and best of all, the ultimate gelato shop - O'Sciality. For our first visit, we tried the vanilla with chocolate pieces stracciatella gelato - unbelievable!

With full bellies, we thought it would be appropriate to head down to one of the local beaches so we took the 1,000 step path down to Mazzaro Bay. The beach itself was very rocky and it was interesting to see so many people lying around on a pebbly beach. The water was surprisingly warm.

After exploring the beach, we decided the cable car back to the top was probably easier than the 1,000 step staircase. We caught a ride back to Taormina and went for dinner at an excellent side street cafe. Dinner comprised a passing grade bruschetta, lasagna, marsala scallopine and some red wine. Delicious! Dessert comprised another visit to the gelato shop, where we choose meringue gelato and stracciatella gelato once again. Best gelato ever!

We then made our way back to our apartment to pack up and get ready to leave in the morning.
