Day to relax.

The only action I did today was to visit the Teatro Greco. 

It was built in 300 BC by the Greeks but Expanded and altered by the Romans a few years later. 

The Greeks built it to use it as a theater. 

The Romans used it for Gladiator fights in the sense of bread and games for the folks. 

Staying or sitting in these 2.300 year old arena is really impressive! 

View from the echelon to the stage. "Backstage" Mt Etna a bit cloudy.

View from the east (seaside).

View to the north.

View to the east with Isola Bella - the beautiful island.

View to the south with the beach of Giardini-Naxos.

And in the West a view over Taormina.

In the museum I could see this about 120 cm long coffin with Bacchus motivs on it.

Impressive that this was written 2000 years ago.

This financial statement shows that bookkeeping is one of the oldest professions ;-)

A hundred years after Goethe also Oskar Wilde graced Taormina. The mentioned shots of the naked boys hang in the breakfast room of hotel Victoria at number 81 where I currently put up at ;-) maybe living in the room Oskar Wilde used too ;-)

Oskar Wilde's sexy boys.
