Elegant Taormina and The Eastern Coast

Situated high above the Ionian Sea on Sicily’s eastern coast, the ancient city of Taormina is a picturesque place that has inspired artists, writers, and tourists for centuries. But the breathtaking view of the sea isn’t the only thing to love about this magical city. The town has been called the “greatest work of art and nature,” according to Goethe, and with its Greek colonial ruins, mild climate, and snow-capped Mount Etna, it’s not hard to see why. Discover this paradise in this Italian culinary vacation.
