TAORMINA, SICILY
 
Sicily
 
 

Taormina is an ancient town on the east coast of Sicily, situated on a hill facing the sea, just 10 minutes from the beaches. Monuments and buildings exhibit the island’s history of colonial influences after the Greeks: Arabs, Romans, Byzantines, Normans, Swabians, Spaniards, and French, until the unification of Italy, 1861. A cable car links the hilltop town to the beach in 2 minutes. And mountains are easy to reach too.
