Travel guide to Taormina: Holidays on the east coast of Sicily

Taormina is located high above the Ionian Sea on a rocky terrace and has been the most visited destination in Sicily for hundreds of years. Historic luminaries such as Goethe raved about the picturesque town, which is set in the impressive landscape between the sea and Mount Etna. Crowds of tourists still push their way through the small town, but without affecting the unique atmosphere of Taormina.

The main attraction of the town and probably of all Sicily is the Greco-Roman theatre, which is located on the tip of the rocky terrace above the sea. In addition to the theatre, many other attractions, such as the Cathedral of San Nicola, the Corso Umberto and the small Odeon, are worth a visit. The best way to explore the small town is a leisurely walking tour.
