Jugoistočna strana Sicilije, koju smo posetili za vreme jednodevnog izleta, ne samo što izlazi na drugo more – Jonsko, nego se razlikuje i po kulturi koja je ostavila najviše uticaja na ovom delu ostrva. Reč je o Grčkoj kulturi, čija je blizina neminovno doprinela da se njena baština proširi na ovaj deo ostrva. Brdovito podneblje, sa Vulkanom Etna, čiji je vrh najviši u Evropi, pruža pogled od koga zastaje dah. Prvo smo posetili gradić Savoca u kome je sniman kultni film Kum sa Al Paćinom i Marlon Brandom. Savoca je karakteristično Italijansko seoce iz unutrašnjosti, kao sa razglednice  iz filma. Obilazak Bara Vitelli, simbola Savoce i malene crkvice, bio je nezaboravan. Posle Savoce, uputili smo se ka Taormini turističkom gradiću koji je bukvalno smešten nebu pod oblake. Oduševile su me balkoni prepuni cveća i spoznaja da mondenski turisti vole da posećuju mesta koja su na velikim nadmorskim visinama kao što je ovo. Poslednje u nizu je bila Etna – Sicilijanski aktivni vulkan. Impozantan prizor spaljene zemlje, kao da je stvoren da se na njemu snimi neki SF film.

The southeastern side of Sicily, which we visited during a day trip, not only that exits on other sea – Ionian, but is different in a culture way, which has left the most impact on this part of the island. It is the Greece culture, whose nearness inevitably contributed to expand its heritage in this part of the island. The mountainous region, with Etna volcano, whose peak is the highest in Europe, offers breathtaking views. We first visited the town of Savoca in which filmed cult movie Godfather with Al Pacino and Marlon Brando. Savoca is typically Italian village, like the ones on a postcard from the movies. The visit of Bar Vitelli, a symbol of Savoca and little church, was unforgettable. After Savoca, we went to the tourist resort of Taormina, which is literally sky high. I was thrilled to see the balconies filled with flowers and notion that fashionable tourists like to visit places that are in high altitude areas, such as this. Last in the series, was Etna – Sicilian volcano. An imposing sight burned ground, as it was created to be in sci-fi movie.
