Pocket Guide: Taormina

Few locations can boast the views that Taormina in northeastern Sicily offers. Its spectacular siting, perched precariously on Monte Tauro with delightful bays prostrating themselves at its feet, makes it Sicily's most popular summer destination. A prominent fixture on many a Grand Tour, it has won over Goethe, D.H. Lawrence and many other artists and aristocrats. Today it continues to attract celebrities and lovers of the good life from all over the world. Book a hotel in this chic resort town that offers designer boutiques, swanky bars and classy restaurants. Yet amidst all this it also offers unpretentious and beautiful breathtakingly beautiful spots that include gorgeous medieval churches, a stunning Greek theatre and those panoramic views over the Gulf of Naxos and Mount Etna.

Areas & Neighbourhoods: Top Taormina Hotel Locations

Teatro Greco - You will not find it hard to locate the ancient theatre in Taormina: it is signposted from just about everywhere you turn. The views from the, admittedly mainly Roman remains take in southern Calabria, the Sicilian coast and the snow-capped peaks of Mount Etna.

Piazza IX Aprile - The centre of town flows away in a procession of flower-decked alleys and narrow streets from the 12th century bell tower at the heart of this square. The cafes on the terrace here are certainly inviting but you will pay for the privilege of booking a hotel here, and there are many other places to enjoy the ambience just a short walk away.

Castelmola - A short hike up the mountain will take you to the quieter delights of this village that clings impossibly to the steep crags. Carry on walking past the cemetery in the church to make the two hour ascent of Monte Venere.

Taormina’s Beaches - Grottoes and rocky coves define the beaches in the bays below Taormina. You can take the cable car to Mazzaró, the closest beach, but if you want to escape the summer crowds take a trip to Giardini-Naxos for a quieter, wider curving bay.

Things to See with a Hotel in Taormina

The brooding presence of Mount Etna in the distance makes every vista rather unique in Taormina but for a more contemplative view hike up Monte Venere. The Roman remains of the so-called Teatro Greco are iconically situated and have inspired poets and writers for centuries. The other remains dotted around Taormina fail to live up to the high expectations that the theatre sets but merit an exploration nonetheless.

Things to Do in Taormina

Hiking in the nearby mountainous interior can be tough going but endlessly rewarding. As can a trip down to Giardini-Naxos to look at the archaeological sites there and enjoy a quieter beach. Designer boutiques and other classy shopping opportunities are tucked away throughout Taormina’s winding streets as are a number of top-end restaurants and trendy bars. If it all seems too much like hard work just find yourself a spot on the beach and see and be seen.
