Taormina is a wonderful and little gem in Sicily located on a terrace of Monte Tauro between the sea and the Mount Etna. It is a medieval town with an unquestionable charm, and it amazes for its blaze of colours,ranging from the blue of the sea to the green of its gardens, passing through the orange of the majolica and the pale pink of its house.
For centuries the destination of the Grand Tour of nobles and intellectuals visiting Italy, Taormina is the guardian of a millenary history, as evidenced by one of its symbolic places: the Teatro Antico, built around the 3 rd century BC, the Teatro Antico still bears the signs of its Greek past.
Taormina's chief delight is wandering Corso Umberto, a pedestrian-friendly, boutique-lined thoroughfare. Start at the tourist office in Palazzo Corvaja, which dates back to the 10th century, before heading southwest for spectacular panoramic views from Piazza IX Aprile.
A weekend in Taormina can be the keystone of lost well-being, between walks, baths in the crystal-clear waters, excellent dinners and a little shopping. Which does not mean fashion and only fashion, but extends to local products not to be missed, whether to be tasted like marzipan or to be admired, like the colourful ceramics.
