Taormina

3.9
With its warm island weather and cliffside location overlooking the Ionion Sea, Taormina has been one of Sicily's most popular getaway destinations since the early 19th century. Ruled in the past by several different important powers, the city features Greek-Roman ruins and a charming old town center of restored medieval buildings. You'll also find a lively network of trendy shops, restaurants, and bars. A well-known swimming locale, the area attracts thousands of tourists each year to bathe in the salty water and explore the rocky coastline, all accessible by the city's aerial tramway. Taormina is in Province of Messina. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Italy trip simple and quick.

Where to stay in Taormina

Perched on the side of a mountain, Taormina offers lodging options that range from family-run guesthouses and traditional B&Bs, to luxury hotels and private seaside villas. Staying close to the city center allows you to enjoy a broad selection of excellent restaurants and cafes, where you can experience the flavors of Sicily's local cuisine. To avoid the overcrowding of Taormina's central areas, which are packed with tourists all year long, venture deeper inland and consider staying at a quiet cottage or cozy private inn.
