It is one of Italy’s most famous tourist resorts; it lays 205mt above the Ionian sea, on the Mount Tauro overlooking two big bays.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the town became one of the most popular winter resorts of the Mediterranean sea and a colony for aristocracy, bankers, artists, writers and intellectuals. D.H. Lawrence stayed here from 1920 to 1922, and in Taormina he composed some of his poems, novels, short stories and essays.
The focal point of our visit will be the Ancient Theatre, built by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC. The theatre was enlarged by the Romans about 600 years later and it is second, in terms of importance and size, only to the one of Syracuse.
From here you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the town and the Naxos Bay.
