MESSINA, ITALY (Sicily)

Bus ride to Taormina (700 feet above the sea) to visit Palazzo Corvaja.
Taormina's many 14th- and 15th-century palaces have been carefully preserved.

Especially beautiful is the Palazzo Corvaja, with characteristic black-lava and

white-limestone inlays. Today it houses the tourist office and the

Museo di Arte e Storia Popolare, which has a collection of cribs, carts, puppets, and folk art.
