The Sicily region
A holiday in Sicily will take you on the most extraordinary journey through time and space. A journey amongst different scents, colours, sounds and flavours. Through 3,000 years of history and civilizations.
Over many centuries the Sicilian island - thanks to its geographical position - has been a very important destination and a natural harbour for the ancient navigations of the merchants in the Mediterranean.
Land full of myths and legends, a central region between the East and the West and main colony of the “Magna Grecia”, fortress of empires and reigns, Sicily guards an amazing treasure of history, culture, art, traditions and folklore. This is why Sicily - ancient land of conquer- still today conquers and charms all visitors.
Sicily is a fascinating mix of different peoples that have come to it over the centuries - Ancient Greeks and Romans, Arabs, Byzantine, Spanish and French.
All of this is reflected in the island's customs, history, food and architecture.
The centuries of different dominations have left artistic and cultural marks, and today a holiday to Sicily lets you travel through thousands of years of history.
As soon as you arrive in Taormina, you will feel the magical, mythical atmosphere spread all around which has enchanted visitors from all over the world for years and years. Settled on a hill of the Monte Tauro, Taormina dominates two grand, sweeping bays below and on the southern side, the top of Mount Etna, the european highest active volcano, often capped with snow, offering to the visitors a breathtaking, dramatic and memorable view over almost one hundred miles of Mediterranean sea. Taormina really seems to be born as a touristic resort since past times, when ancient people like the Sicels, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Saracens, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards chose it as their residential site thank to its favourable position, mild climate and magic atmosphere.
In Taormina tourists can enjoy the best Italian shopping stores as well as a wide choice of unusual charming shops to purchase typical Sicilian products such as the renowned hand made ceramics or the elegant antique shops, the delicatessen stores with plenty of local wines and other gourmet items or those selling fine leather, wrought iron and wooden products.
The streets of Taormina offer also an abundance of bars and restaurants. The “pedestrian only” area and its main square, adorned by Oleander trees, are like an open air “salotto” where you can spend hours leisurely sipping a Martini, listening to a café concerto or just watching the world go by. The town also hosts numerous cultural events, some of which take place in the Greek theatre.
Visit the Piazza Duomo with the Cathedral and the Baroque fountain, the Clock Tower, the Gymnasium, the public gardens, the ancient theatre, the many 'palazzos' and churches and the Arabian necropolis.
Mount Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe with its astonishing lapilli and routes of fire, and its lava flowing down its slope taking your breath away: a supreme and exciting sight. Etna can be reached easily from our villas and apartments on the east coast on Sicily. Excursions are available all year round.
