Perched atop a high cliff, Taormina appears to float above the azure waters of the Bay of Naxos. The air in Sicily’s most glamorous spot is perfumed with the scent of orange and lemon blossom, and here you will find narrow streets full of local colours and flavour. Explore this little corner of paradise as you stroll through Taormina’s main street, Corso Umberto, which offers both chic stores and plenty for history buffs. Visit the Greek Theatre, whose unparalleled position offers spectacular views of Mount Etna and the surrounding landscape. Later, continue to the medieval village of Castelmola di Sicilia, founded on a crag high above Taormina. Castelmola retains its medieval character and is a tranquil spot to enjoy the locally produced almond wine.
