In 1993 I traveled throughout Italy by bicycle for almost a year. In the Fall of that year we toured Eastern Sicily and spent some time enjoying Taormina. Sicily is very different from mainland Italy – the people, food, and language completely change. Spending time in Sicily is a very unique experience because it’s is exactly like you’d expect the “old country” to be like. If you ever have the chance to check out this island you should do it. Doing it on a bicycle was even cooler.
