Visit Taormina - Best of Taormina
Take a trip to Sicily’s tourist capital – Taormina – and you will understand why it has been a top choice for many writers, artists, actors and commoners alike! Taormina is a perfect fusion of old and new– while the streets are lined with high end boutiques, piazzas in this elegant resort town are every bit medieval – taking visitors back in time. Close proximity to Mount Etna and Castlemola are nature lovers’ dream come true. Plan a 1 day or 2 days itinerary from Taormina and explore these Nature’s wonders.
Initially considered home to Hephaistos - God of Fire by ancient Greeks, Mount Etna is one of the highest mountain and a top attraction in all of Sicily! Take a guided tour and go on a hiking trail on Europe’s most active volcano! If hiking isn’t your thing, then take a train ride around Mount Etna and explore villages that lie at its feet and another magnificent attraction worth exploring is Castlemola – walk to it or take a bus.
Although, each and every site in Taormina is a sight to behold but if you are short on time, then do visit some of the top attractions like Greek Amphitheatre, Isola Bella, Piazza IX Aprile, Lido Mazzaro, Corso Umberto, Castlemola and Taormina Mare.
