Ruins · Islands · Landmarks
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.

Where to stay in Taormina

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.
