What people say

"Taormina is undoubtedly one of the top tourist destinations in Italy. Its natural and artistic beauty has attracted visitors for centuries, including some of the most illustrious writers, such as Goethe and Oscar Wilde. In the 1950s, Taormina became a playground for celebrities, Hollywood stars, and aristocratic figures, cementing its status as a capital of Italian Dolce Vita. Still today, the town's ancient Greek theater, stunning views of Mount Etna and the Mediterranean Sea, and beautiful gardens continue to draw tourists from all over the world. Corso Umberto is the heart of the historic center, perfect for an afternoon stroll after a day spent sunbathing on the beach, and a paradise for shopping-addicted. Along the way, you'll find luxury brand stores, but you're not here to buy what you can buy everywhere else, right? For unique souvenirs, check out the specialty boutiques that overflow with Sicilian handicrafts such as Caltagirone ceramics, embroidery, coral jewelry, precious trinkets, local art, vintage prints, and antique objects. Surrounded by numerous monuments, including the Clock Tower, the Church of St. Joseph, and the former Augustine Convent. Piazza IX Aprile is an unmissable panoramic terrace overlooking the Ionian coast with amazing views over the volcano, the Ancient Theater, and the blue sea below. "
