  • There are few words to describe this beautiful place. Taormina is very crowded in summertime, lots of tourist visit this little pearl and often they come back the next year. if you get lost in the small streets, you will discover enchanting and typical places less mainstream but equally good.
  • Beautiful. This beautiful town is magical during the day and evening. Quaint little alleyways, beautiful buildings and churches. At night the hills and cliffs are lit up as they rise above you. There are endless bars and restaurants, and boutiques to browse. Also a very peaceful park with stunning sea views. It is well worth a visit.
