The train from Naples crosses the Stretto di Messino at Villa San Giovanni to get to Messina. Once on land, half of the train heads west to Palermo and the other half heads south to Taormina, Catania, and Siracusa. Note that just southwest of Taormina is the volcanic Mount Etna. We'll hike up to Castelmola to get a view of the hopefully sleeping Etna.
