The best time to visit Taormina is either from April to June or from September to October.
Winter: November to April – With lesser crowd and rising temperature in Taormina, attractions tend to close early until Christmas. This festive season brings with it lot of festivity and tourists wanting to explore the City around this time. And then it is quite season again till February with most of establishments closed down and very few tourists. Although, you may get good deals in terms of accommodation, it is not a best time to visit.
Spring: May to June – It is the best time to visit Taormina. Beach activities are at its best and all the attractions and restaurants are open for extended hours. Be ready to struggle a bit to get that best spot at the beach as it is a peak season.
Autumn: September to October - Another good time to visit Taormina – almost perfect weather makes it an ideal time to explore the City and its magnificent attractions and also to take in stunning views of Mount Etna!
Summer: July to August – Try and avoid this time as most of the establishments close down to escape the sweltering heat.
