Oasi del Fiumefreddo


Agriturismo Sicilia



Taormina perched on a rocky spur at an altitude of about 200m, it occupies a fabulous position, overlooking the sea and right opposite Etna volcano. It has been a popular destination for travelers since the 18th century: the mild climate, the splendid landscape and serene outlook have made Taormina famous worldwide. The city has great reminders of an ancient history: the Greek Theatre still maintains the original cavea (auditorium) and it continues to be used for prestigious events such as the famous Taormina Arte, an International review Festival of cinema, theatre, ballet and music, which all take place during the summer months. The main street possesses two main entrances (Porta Messina - Porta Catania) and is characterized by elegant shops, restaurants and cafés. Along the street there are: the Chiesa di San Pancrazio, built on the ruins of a temple dedicated to Zeus; the lovely square Piazza IX Aprile, notable for a gracious balcony overlooking the sea and offering wonderful views over the bay and across the Mount Etna; beautiful buildings such as the Palazzo Corvaja dates from the Arab age. The Duomo (the Cathedral) is dedicated to Saint Nicholas of Bari, its simple façade is ornamented by a Renaissance doorway while the interior is Gothic. Taormina also offers natural attractions and beautiful beaches: the little Mazzarò bay, which hides many caves and grottoes, the beautiful Isola Bella, a small island connected to the land by a thin strip of sand, protected by the WWF and recently declared Nature Reserve, and Giardini Naxo,; the first Greek colony of the island.
