Commanding fantastic (and famous) views over two sweeping bays, Taormina is Sicily’s most glamorous resort, and has been since the early 20th century, when it numbered D.H. Lawrence among its expatriate residents.
1. An evening stroll around Taormina. Explore Taormina and indulge in a little window shopping and people watching, then choose a bar with a fantastic view for a romantic aperitivo.
2. Follow the steep path, used for religious processions, that leads from the Via Circonvallazione to the cliff-top chapel of Madonna della Rocca. At its most evocative at sunset, of course.
3. From June to September Taormina runs an eclectic season of film, music, dance, theatre, Classical and rock music, stage in the ancient Greek theatre. Unforgettable, with Taormina at its buzziest.
