Taormina

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Taormina sits atop a hill on Sicily's east coast, before a backdrop of golden sandy beaches, the glittering Ionian sea, and the geological grandeur of Mount Etna – an active volcano veined with trails. From flourishing Greek to Roman town, Taormina's history is everywhere you look.

Check out the labyrinth-like medieval streets of its old town, as well as the Teatro Antico di Taormina: the dramatic ruins of an ancient Greco-Roman theater, which is still used today. In Taormina you can fill your days by strolling the pedestrianized main street for souvenirs, dining on authentic Sicilian fare, or watching the sunset with a tangy limoncello.
