Taormina

Overview

Taormina is a beguiling town in a commanding position high on Monte Tauro. In the shadow of Mount Etna’s imposing silhouette, it forms a balcony overlooking two sweeping bays, 250 metres below. The 4th century BC Teatro Greco, with its unparalleled view, is testament to the millennia of history in the town which has been a popular coastal resort since the 18th century and has beautiful monuments and exotic gardens.

Hotels in the seaside resort of Taormina Beach hug the dramatic rocky coastline and provide a tranquil haven away from the main town centre. The public cable car takes 5 minutes and arrives just outside Porta Messina, one of the ancient entrances to the hilltop town
