About the Local Area

ABOUT THE AREA

Dating back to 4th century BC, the town of Taormina offers an eclectic mix of the old and the new. A chic resort, though unashamedly touristy, it is arguably the most enchanting town in Sicily. Many charms include, beautiful restored medieval buildings on winding streets, the famous passeggiata along Corso Umberto and the stunning Greek theatre with spectacular views across the Gulf of Naxos and an impressive backdrop of Mount Etna.

LOCAL BEACHES

Isola Bella Beach
The most famous of Taormina’s beaches and one of the prettiest of coves, Isola Bella Beach is connected to the little island of the same name by a thin strip of sand. Offering panoramic views and crystal clear water, this very popular, pebbly beach is connected to the town by cable car (or some 300 steps) and has sunloungers and parasols for hire.

Mazzarò
Just a short cable car ride down from the town of Taormina, Mazzarò is a pebbly cove with ample sunloungers and parasols for hire.

Giardini Naxos
Just south of Taormina, this beautiful and popular bay of white sand with some pebbly sections is the largest stretch of beach in the area. There’s a good range of facilities with sunloungers, parasols for hire, water sports, beach bars and restaurants.

FESTIVALS

Taormina Film Fest - June
A six-day festival of film screenings and press conferences held at the Greek Theatre.

Taormina Arte – July & August

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Corso Umberto
Take an evening stroll along the medieval Corso Umberto, a pedestrianised avenue lined with exclusive designer boutiques, antique shops and luxury jewellers.

Greek Theatre
The Teatro Greco is Taormina’s leading attraction. Built in the 3rd century BC, this stunning Greek theatre offers a picturesque setting with views across the Gulf of Naxos and a backdrop of Mount Etna. Each summer the theatre is used as a venue for an impressive schedule of events; from rock concerts to opera as well as an annual film festival.

Mount Etna
Etna, which is the largest active volcano in Europe, erupts frequently and a tour up to the crater is a must for any tourist visiting the island.
