Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Taormina has always been a popular tourist destination visited by some very famous people starting with William II of Germany, followed by personalities such as Goethe, Maupassant, D. H. Lawrence, A. France, Oscar Wilde and Brahms.
The sea has always played an important economic role here and, over the years, it has been constantly maximized and developed by the locals inhabitants: in the past the sea provided work for a multitude of local fishermen, but today Taormina is most famous as a tourist attraction with wonderful locations such as Isola Bella, Capo S'Andrea, Mazzarò and Baia delle Sirene. The stunning panoramic views offered by these places and the wealth of nature around them have contributed significantly to the city's remarkable international fame.
The symbol of Taormina is the Greek Theater which is of Hellenistic origin and dates back to the 3rd century B.C. This beautiful theater is still used today for cultural and artistic functions such as the series of international events known as "Taormina Arte" which are held every year during the summer months.

The Sicily region
The largest of the Italian islands, Sicily overflows with an abundance of natural and architectural beauty. From the slopes of Mt Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, to Palermo's classical ruins and the family-friendly sparkling blue waters of Giardini Naxos and Letojanni, Sicily has something for everyone.
Perhaps one destination which sums up Sicily's charms is Taorimna, where twisting medieval streets host bustling boutiques and restaurants alongside an awe-inspiring Greek theatre. A cable car carries beach lovers to the town's sweeping bays, from where you can enjoy dramatic views along a rugged coastline.
Throw in the island's renowned passion for fine food and home grown wines, and you have the perfect recipe for a great holiday...and your own personal slice of 'la bella vita'.
