Perched high above the Ionian Sea, overlooking the Bay of Naxos, historic Taormina is a tiny town with much to offer. Stroll along bustling Corso Umberto, lined with mansions, flower-filled balconies, boutiques and cafés serving up cannoli – crisp pastry tubes with a sweet, creamy filling. Find Piazza IX Aprile and its patchwork of black-and-white paving and you’ll also find fantastic views, as the square morphs into a sea-view terrace. And enjoy the drama of the Greek theatre, dating to the 3rd century BC and still hosting performances: the panorama of the coast and Mount Etna is unlike any stage backdrop you’ve ever seen.
