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.
