What a place, what a location, what sea. Taormina is Sicily's star and certainly deserves the nickname it has been given. Nestled high on the hillside of Mount Tauro, it has stunning views of the sea, and a wonderful Greek legacy(the spectacular Teatro Greco was built in the third century BC), the beautiful medieval village has everything you need to make itself the choice for thousands of tourists who spend their vacation here. Ignoring July and August, when it really is impossible to enjoy, as you should, the city and its beaches, Taormina is amazing from every point of view. As in any other part of Sicily, here you find charming small hotels, restaurants and excellent designer shops.
