Isola Bella, Grottos, and the Magical Maffei’s Ristorante πŸ–β›°β€οΈπŸ‡πŸ•―

After a long night’s sleep we were well rested to start our day. The concierge arranged for us to have lunch and some relaxation time on a private beach. πŸ–

Afterwards we headed to the main event which is the Island of Isola Bella. This pretty island is connected to Taormina by a tiny sliver of land and is popular with sunbathers. πŸŠπŸ½πŸ–

We waded through the water and found our spot on the rocky sand and enjoyed the sights. 🏝 Of course the setting begged for picture taking and you know that’s a Shap fave activity! πŸ“Έ

A guy came around and twisted our arm to take a tourist boat along the shore! 🚀 I am so glad we were suckers because what a treat it was! We saw 3 blue grottos and enjoyed some magnificent scenery of the coast!β›°πŸ

We headed back to our villa to relax before our dinner back in the town.

Our concierge recommended a restaurant and we had no clue of the beauty to come! 🍝The setting was magical, I’ve never dined under a lush pergola of Bougainvillea flowers and vines by candlelight. πŸŒ²πŸ‡πŸ•―The setting was top notch and the food was delizioso! Even with kids it was a romantic spot and will forever be memorable! ❀️🎁
