Fifth generation captain, Carmelo, delivered an awesome last-minute our-long tour of the Taormina coastline. His passion for his hometown showed and was genuine and refreshing. He accommodated our thirst for wine by providing an ice bucket and glasses!!

Hi, I'm only now responding to his senseless accusations to tell you that she is a greedy person. But we forgive her for this review because in any place she has been left only negative judgments. Good life and smile, that life is short.
