What a pretty little town! Contrast of beach and the old town on top of the windy windy road! Views are amazing in Taormina, beautiful strip of shopping and great cafes (1km to be exact) and the best part is, once you’ve exhausted the shopping and eating, you can catch the cable car straight down to the beach.
The nightlife is vibrant, food delicious and people friendly!
Here’s a few of my faves/tips..
Grab a coffee granita at Bam Bar / local haunt.
Great pizza and atmosphere at villa Lucaro pizzeria
Il Defino restaurant was on my list but didn’t have time.
If budget allows, The Grand Hotel Timeo is stunning, or go for dinner or a wander around the gardens.
Greek theatre is next to the Grand Timeo, see a performance if you get the chance.
Spend a day by Isola Bella ( stunning beach with the iconic striped umbrellas and crystal clear water) your hotel can organise a lounge chair and umbrella for you (EUR 50 a day for 2 of you).
Such a pretty place filled with culture and beauty!!
I’m jealous if you are going!! X
