Taormina (Sicilian: Taurmina, Greek: Ταυρομένιον Tauromenion, Latin: Tauromenium) is a comune and small town on the east coast of the island of Sicily, Italy, in the Province of Messina, about midway between Messina and Catania. Taormina has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. It has popular beaches (accessible via an aerial tramway) on the Ionian sea, which is remarkably warm and has a high salt content. Taormina can be reached via highways (autostrade) from Messina from the north and Catania from the south.
Taormina is a beautiful town on a hill. It’s definitely worth spending some hours or even a couple of days… There’s lots of cosy restaurants and nice hotels. The beach (although not sandy) is beautifull and has very clear water. An exquisite place!
