Taormina

Taormina is perhaps the main tourist destination of his Sicily. A city to be discovered with its history, its art and the proximity to the sea that offers suggestive scenarios to be appreciated and photographed.

To start, here are the main monuments:

  • The Greek Theater of Taormina , the monument of monuments, is a great testimony of Ancient Sicily built by the Greeks in the third century BC . Visiting the theater allows you to immerse yourself in the nature that surrounds it and enjoy the spectacular promontory that the Greeks chose as a spectacular setting. Even today, the theater is in use and hosts concerts and cultural events in the summer season. The most important is the Taormina Arte , the international arts festival, known and appreciated for its rich calendar of musical, theatrical, dance and cinema events.
  • The Municipal Villa is a pleasant oasis of tranquility in the city center, where you can stroll and enjoy a wonderful view of Mount Etna and the coast.
