The Sicily region

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea; along with surrounding minor islands, it constitutes an autonomous region of Italy, theRegione Autonoma Siciliana .

Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean. It extends from the tip of the Apennine peninsula from which it is separated only by narrow Strait of Messina, towards the North African coast. Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, which is at 3,320 m (10,890 ft) the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate.

Earliest archeological evidence of human dwelling on the island dates from 8000 BC. Around 750 BC, Sicily became a Greek colony and for the next 600 years it was the site of the Greek–Punicand Roman–Punic wars, which ended with the Roman destruction of Carthage. After the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD, Sicily often changed hands, and during the early Middle Ages it was ruled in turn by the Vandals, Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Later on, the Kingdom of Sicily lasted between 1130 and 1816, subordinated to the crowns of Aragon,Spain, the Holy Roman Empire, and finally the Bourbons, as the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. It was united with the rest of Italy in 1860, but a subsequent economic collapse led to a wave of emigration, separatism, and the emergence of the Mafia, whose criminal activities pose problems to this day. After the birth of the Italian Republic in 1946, Sicily was given special status as an autonomous region.

Sicily has a rich and unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, music, literature, cuisine, architecture and language. Sicily also holds importance for archeological and ancient sites such as the Necropolis of Pantalica, the Valley of the Temples and Selinunte.

The Sicilian economy is diversified. The agriculture sector is significant with citrus fruits, olives and olive oil, grapes and wine. Tourism and real estate are economically important for the island. Still, with the gross domestic product per capita at around €17,000, it stands at only two-thirds of the European Union average and is one of the least developed regions of Italy.

Settled on a hill 200 mt. above the sea level, Taormina dominates the coast line with its beaches, facing the magnificent Mount Etna, the highest European active volcano which often offers unexpected spectacular eruptions.

Since the opening of the first hotel in 1874, Taormina has become one of the world top touristic destinations where visitors can experience a perfect combination of old times charming atmosphere, preservation of history and culture, an elegant and lively way of life to be enjoyed in relaxing walks through the old town pedestrian areas, which is only 4 minutes walking distance from the apartment.

During the summer the ancient Greek Theatre becomes an alive stage where international cultural events take place, like: theatre, classical and modern music, opera and many other happenings, where you can enjoy the entertainment offered by international known artists.

Nightlife offers a variety of possibilities. You can just enjoy strolling around Corso Umberto pedestrian area having an ice cream sitting at the bar in the plaza, while listening to live music, or enjoying a visit at the pub, or at the wine bar, or discothèque.

If you just wish to enjoy the Mediterranean sea, there is a daily shuttle service to the various beaches of Taormina: the shuttle will take you down there and bring you back, leaving five minutes walking distance from the apartments.
