Taormina Christmas – Dinner at Medousa

Christmas time in Taormina is wonderful. It is low season of tourists and the decorations this year are amazingly beautiful. Then we went for a nice dinner at Medousa by Porta Catania, a new restaurant opened August this year. Can highly recommend. They have a fairy-tale entrance with Christmas lights and decorations on citrus trees.

DrinkS & sNacks – Sicilian hospitality

Aperitivo is common in Sicily, you meet friends or customers for drinks any day of the week. Nice habit in Sicily is when you order drinks they always bring snacks. It can be chips and peanuts, or many times even a small tray with finger food like mini sandwich, meat balls, vegetables ecc. These are for free. If you want more food you can order drink with aperitivo or Happy Hour menu, and for some extra euros you get a larger tray with more different foods, enough for dinner. Enjoy!

Here we are at bar Daquiri at Corso Umberto in Taormina. You find it on the main street with funny colorful big flower vases on the steps.

Metropole and Champagne

m
Metropole Hotel in Taormina has become one of my favourite places for just relaxing with a great view. You find this place in the middle of Corso Umberto. They often have jazz evenings, and from the large terrass you can enjoy the view to Etna, Giardini-Naxos and over the Mediterranean sea that never ends.

Metropol is also a show you up place (in italian Farsi Vedere). I like to observe these people. Men in Gucci ties and women with expensive shopping bags hanging from the side of the chair, sits with their back up straight sipping their coctails and chatting, observing others and carefully checking others designer bags and what they have bought. Despite all this I have never seen so many LV fake bags in one place and also started to notice italian gigolos here with a new woman every week; she pays for drinks, he tries to look interested, every week different ages in new dresses. This place is lika a mini movie of real Taormina that changes with new stars. Observing the happenings while sipping my champagne.? Snacks comes with.

Metropole Hotel i Taormina har blivit en av mina favoritplatser f?r att bara koppla av med en fantastisk utsikt. Du hittar denna plats i mitten av Corso Umberto. De har ofta jazzkv?llar, och fr?n den stora terrassen du kan njuta av utsikten till Etna, Giardini-Naxos och ?ver Medelhavet som aldrig tar slut.

Metropol ?r ocks? en visa upp sig plats (p? italienska Farsi Vedere). Jag gillar att observera dessa m?nniskor. M?n i Gucci slipsar och kvinnor med dyra shoppingp?sar h?ngandes fr?n stolen, sittande med rak rygg l?ppjandes p? deras coctails blandat med sm?snack. De observerar ocks?, dock diskret, och kontrollerar noggrant andras designerv?skor och vad de har k?pt. Trots allt detta har jag aldrig sett s? m?nga falska LV v?skor p? ett st?lle och ?ven b?rjat l?gga m?rke till italienska gigolos h?r med en ny kvinna varje vecka; hon betalar f?r drycker, han f?rs?ker se intresserad ut, varje vecka olika ?ldrar i nya kl?nningar. Denna plats ?r som en minifilm om verkliga Taormina som f?r?ndras med nya stj?rnor. Observerar h?ndelserna medan jag sippar p? min champagne. Snacksen ?r inkluderade.
