Daily Photo 42: Taormina

The Greek theatre in Taormina, Sicily. I really envy those ancient Greeks who, having built this theatre, could sit back and watch a play while Etna – its summit visible among the clouds – erupted in the distance. (Photo taken in September 2013)

Daily Photo 29: Monreale

Magnificent cloisters, surely among the finest anywhere, at the cathedral in Monreale in Sicily. Each quarter contains a different tree – fig, pomegranate, olive and date palm – representing different gardens in the Bible. (Photo taken in April 2015)
