What to see in Taormina

Taormina, perched on Sicily's eastern cliffs, is an enchanting town celebrated for its dramatic views, ancient Greek theatre and medieval charm. Overlooking the Ionian Sea and framed by Mount Etna's majestic silhouette, Taormina is a picturesque destination that seamlessly marries history and natural beauty.

Nestled on a hilltop overlooking the azure waters of the Ionian Sea, Taormina's ancient Greek Theatre is an iconic symbol of the town's rich history and enduring cultural significance. Begin your exploration with a visit to the Greek Theatre, a stunning archaeological gem that dates back to the 3rd century BC. This remarkably preserved amphitheatre offers not only a fascinating glimpse into ancient Greek architecture but also breathtaking panoramic views of Mount Etna and the Sicilian coastline. The theatre's acoustics are remarkable, and it continues to host various cultural events, including concerts and theatrical performances.

Taormina’s historic centre is a delightful maze of narrow streets, picturesque piazzas and medieval architecture that invites leisurely exploration. Begin your journey along Corso Umberto I, Taormina's main thoroughfare. Lined with elegant boutiques, cafes and restaurants, this pedestrian street offers the perfect blend of shopping and people-watching. Admire the Baroque and medieval architecture as you stroll. Pause at Piazza IX Aprile, one of Taormina's most enchanting squares. Here, you'll find the Chiesa di San Giuseppe, a charming church with an intricate facade, and the iconic Clock Tower, which offers panoramic views of the sea and Mount Etna from its terrace. The square's open-air cafes are ideal for sipping a traditional Sicilian granita or enjoying a coffee.

Taormina’s coastal location offers access to some of Sicily's most picturesque beaches, where you can unwind and enjoy the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea. A short cable car ride or walk from the town centre takes you to Isola Bella, a small island nature reserve connected to the mainland by a narrow sandbar. This idyllic spot boasts a pebble beach and pristine waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Explore the island's lush gardens and discover the historic Villa and Museum of Isola Bella.
