What people say

"Taormina is one of the most beautiful and magical places in the world. For many tourists, from all over the world, Taormina is a must-see destination. The charming town is located on the rocky plateau of Mount Tauro overlooking the Ionian Sea, at a height of about 250 meters. Taormina boasts a rich artistic, historical, and cultural heritage that with its healthy climate and beautiful natural scenery, has attracted visitors since the middle of the eighteenth century. "
"Taormina is a beautiful ancient Sicilian city on the east coast near Catania airport. Taormina lies on a hilltop, with a narrow road from bottom to top. It is located near Mount Etna, an active volcano with trails leading to its summit. Taormina is home to the ancient Greco-Roman theater Teatro Antico di Taormina, which is still in use today. "
"It's probably the most famous place in Sicily, but there is a reason for that. The views from this town perched on top of the hill are glorious, from Etna to mainland Italy (Calabria). Under Taormina you have Isola Bella, a semi-detached Island that used to be owned by a Noble family, and is now open to everyone as a museum."
