Seaside resort south of Taormina
The beach resort Giardini Naxos is located a few kilometres south of Taormina. Although not much remains of the ancient heritage of the nearby Greek origin settlement, the town and its long sandy beaches have developed into a popular holiday resort on the east coast of Sicily. Many hotels, restaurants and apartment buildings attract tourists to swim and relax in the summer months. The immediate vicinity of Taormina, Catania, the Riviera of the Cyclops and Mount Etna offer attractive options for exciting trips and cultural highlights.
