Day 1 landing in Sicily:

To get to Taormina you would need to catch a flight to Catania Fontanarossa “Vincenzo Bellini” International airport. It is about a 1 hour drive to Taormina, so if possible it would be best to catch a flight early in the morning.

You can check any available flights here:

Once you arrive in Taormina you can checkin to this lovely B&B where we stayed at:

Venere B&B Castelmola
@jasminefauselattard
This was a very great stay. It is located up on a hill near Castelmola centre. It has such a beautiful view of the landscape and sea. The sun also rises directly in front of you from the view you see. The owners are also very welcoming and their breakfast and dinner was very delicious. They even make their own wine!

Later on we headed to the stunning Villa Comunale di Taormina. It is a beautiful park near the city centre. It has so much history and in it you can find an ancient theatre.

We then went straight to the beach! Winter or summer Taormina's beaches are too great to miss out on. We had went during December for our stay and still the weather was always sunny! 

We started from walking all around the Spiaggia mazzarò bay.

Day 3 Mount Etna:

After checking out we were off to the famous Mount Etna! 

To go to Mount Etna from Taormina you can take a train to Catania, then transfer to the AST bus to Rifugio Sapienza.

However, we booked a personal driver that would take us to Mount Etna and drive us back to the airport later on the day (so he would be with us all day). 

He is a great friend of ours and a trusted driver for whenever we go to Sicily. If you would like further information about our driver feel free to reach out to me for his contact details!

We hiked all around Mount Etna, played in the snow, and before we left for the airport we ate in a near by restaurant.
