What to see and do on a Holiday to Taormina
History buffs will love Taormina for its interesting ruins and historic buildings. The ancient theatre here is remarkably well-preserved, and features a Greek layout with Roman building techniques. Visitors to the theatre can explore the tall walls and remnants of seats that still stand in this picturesque site. The old medieval town is also a great place to visit for its Saracen castle that sits high atop the town, overlooking the sea.
Sun worshippers on a holiday to Taormina can explore the rocky coastline south of the town to discover white sand beaches and secluded coves nestled between steep cliffs. The waters of the Ionian Sea are incredibly warm and clear, making this the ideal spot to do some snorkelling or diving. Visitors can also walk or drive to the nearby beach resort of Giardini Naxos for a lazy day of relaxing on the sands.
Another reason that Taormina is so appealing to travellers is the abundance of restaurants and bars serving mouthwatering dishes and refreshing cocktails. Nothing quite compares to indulging in fresh seafood, hearty and healthy Sicilian dishes, classic Italian fare, creamy gelato, and sweet and tangy Limoncello, while taking in the gentle sea breezes and magnificent views of the coastline and Mount Etna. For those who want to keep the momentum going, Taormina offers many clubs and discos where you can get your groove on late into the evening.
