Located on the edge of a cliff, overlooking Mount Etna and the Lonian Sea, Taormina is a well- preserved medieval town with many cultural attractions including Teatro Greco, a Greek amphitheatre built in the third century BC, and Villa Comunale, the city gardens with a beautiful array of Mediterranean vegetation.
Taormina is a hilltop town on the east coast of Sicily. It sits near Mount Etna, an active volcano with trails leading to the summit. The town is known for the Teatro Antico di Taormina, an ancient Greco-Roman theatre still used today. Near the theatre, cliffs drop to the sea forming coves with sandy beaches. A narrow stretch of sand connects the mainland to Isola Bella, a tiny island and nature reserve.
Considered by Cicero to be the ancient world’s most beautiful city, the historic centre of Syracuse has retained many fascinating sights.
Sicily’s capital is known for its gastronomy, culture, art and music. Palermo’s Norman and Arab influences can be seen in the Palazzo Chapel, and the Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti.
