Ancient greek soul
Even if it is a small town on the east coast of Sicily, Taormina is one of the most visited touristic resorts in all of Italy. Perched up on a hill about 250 m above the sea, Taormina is about midway between Messina and Catania, a good base for day excursions in eastern Sicily. Taormina’s history dates back to the 4th century and its beauty is mainly done by the presence of important monuments and historical beauties as the Greek Theatre, stage of many concerts and cultural activities. Among the best things to visit in and around Taormina, a special mention must be dedicated to Giardini Naxos, Isola Bella and Mazzarò.
