Welcome to Taormina
Location, location, location. The ancient Greeks—and, later, the Romans—had an eye for prime real estate, which is why the historic resort town of Taormina occupies one of the most spectacular mountaintop perches in Sicily. Soak up the dolce vita vibe while strolling along Corso Umberto I and marvel at the Greek Theater, still stunning almost two millennia after it was built. Excursions to the panoramic village of Castelmola, Mount Etna’s volcanic peak and surrounding wineries, and Isola Bella along the coast also top Taormina’s to-do list.
