To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything...The things that enchant you cannot be counted." (J.W. Goethe, “Italian Journey”, 1873). From blackened lava fields to soft sandy coves, Sicily boasts wonderfully contrasting landscapes. This idyllic isle is a patchwork of rolling plains, sweet-smelling citrus groves, precipitous cliffs and flower-filled meadows. Like the scenery, Sicily’s heritage is also incredibly varied. Its strategic mid-Mediterranean location made it the coveted prize of many an empire and centuries of invasion by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, French and Spanish left behind indelible marks on the island’s cultural landscape. Holidays in Sicily are also about enjoying the island's passion for food and drink. Whatever you're doing, it'll feel even better paired with a glass of almond wine, homemade pizza or steaming espresso. Add a superb all-year round climate and the locals' irresistible zest and hospitality and you're sure of a memorable time here.
Pearl of the Mediterranean, easily reachable by bus, taxis or with the help of a cable car located 15 minutes walk away. Taormina is like a treasure chest of history: walking along its main traffic-free street, Corso Umberto, and the maze of narrow streets and small beautiful squares, you will find theatres and gymnasiums from the Greek age, Odeon and baths from the Roman age, stunning buildings in which the Arab and the Norman cultures melt together in a memorable sense of beauty. Small shops selling local crafts, designer boutiques, romantic candlelit bars and sparkling restaurants, tucked away among the medieval streets of the old town, add to Taormina's charm. And if you're lucky enough to coincide your visit with the Taormina Art Festival in the summer, you'll be treated to a fantastic programme of international music, theatre, art, opera, dance and film. Taormina, perched high above the Ionian coast and commanding spectacular views of the sea below and Moint Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, is particularly renowned for its ancient Greek theatrre, but its pedestrianised centre, running between the medieval gates of Porta Messina and Porta Catania, contains also other remains from classical times, as well as several graceful churches and palazzi.
