TAORMINA IN SICILY
Taormina, is also called “pearl of Sicily” thanks to its enchanting position, between the mount Etna and the Mediterranean sea. Taormina has always been and still now is a “must see” for visitors coming from all over the world.
The most important monument of Taormina is the ancient Greek Theatre. It is the second biggest Greek theatre in Sicily, after the one in Syracuse. During summer it is used for music concerts and other events. The panorama from the Greek theater is breathtaking. Behind the ancient ruins it is possible to see the Etna, crowded of snow and the bay of Giardini Naxos.
The main street of Taormina is Corso Umberto I, with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars which offer delicious Sicilian pastries.
Taormina is the ideal place to enjoy a typical sicilian panorama, visit important monuments, to buy souvenirs, or to do shopping in fashion shops. During your Sicilian holidays a visit in Taormina, few hours or a whole day, is absolutely to recommend.
