  • From the Messina door to door Catania, the town of Taormina is full of charming nooks and beautiful terraces. Worth a visit for its Greco-Roman theater; the Palazzo Corvajo, the Duomo, the Church of Santa Caterina, etc, etc.

  • Access to Taormina is characterized by this ' gate '. Once you enter you have the impression of being catapulted into the land of Sicily through the smells and local shops

  • We can easily be reached by bus or shuttle service from the car park and entrance impressive. Nothing triumphant but nice to cross only to be greeted by packed with tourists and little shops. Walk calmly, there to be seen.

  • Food was okay, nothing special but whats the deal with an €8 "service charge per person"? We ended up paying over €50 for a pizza, a few drinks and a caprese salad!
  • Nice view, relaxed attitude, medium prices. Recommend it on a sunny day
  • Most incredible, fun,delicious and informative cooking class with full participation, personal certificates and lovely apron. Full menu and recipes for local fresh Sicilian fare. After shopping at the local market we learned how to cook Sea bass, stuffed sardines, breaded Capone, raw local red shrimps, eggplant Parmesan, home made pasta, home made breads. Enjoying buffalo mozzarella, home made pizza marinara , antipasto with pepper cheese, olives, sun dried tomatoes and locally grown mango pancakes, all orchestrated by Stefan, Pepe, and Senior plus many friendly attentive servers. Excellent cappuccino, house wines. Clean interesting cheery atmosphere. Easy location. By far the best meal I have ever had !!
  • Just don't bother, overpriced! The food is just not up to standard in any capacity. You have so much choice in Taormina so choose another place. And upset tingly the price wasn't even lower than other places.
  • Good food, kind staff.

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.
