We just went on a trip that was planned by IES Abroad, to the beautiful Sicilian region. The majority of our program was in attendance and it was a great opportunity to meet more kids in the program. We went on a beautiful walking tour of different churches and a monastery upon our arrival. That night we set out and explored the Sicilian nightlife. The Sicilian people were very lively and the squares were full of young people.
The following day we went to Taormina, which was by far my favorite part of the trip. The winding cobblestone roads overlooked a breathtaking view of the ocean. We also visited an outdoor Greek Theatre where some of our music students got to perform, which was really cool.
The third day we climbed up part of Mount Etna and explored some underground caves. The mountain has four active volcanoes and the ground was covered in volcanic rock.
