The Sicily region
There's no other place on Earth like Sicily. The island has a unique mild climate and is a place full of art, archeology, history, folklore , breathtaking scenery and splendid landscapes.
The Taormina area
Perched on a rocky spur at about 200m height, Taormina occupies a fabulous position, overlooking the sea and right opposite Etna volcano. It has been a popular destination for travellers since the 18th century, although only in the last decades it has developed into a well-known tourist resort. Many foreigners, notably British and German, have decided to build villas in the town and many illustrious figures fave sojourned there, including Emperor William II and King Edward VII, and such famous families as the Rothschilds and the Krupps.
A mild climate, a splendid landscape and serene outlook have made Taormina famous worldwide
