The beautiful island of Sicily offers numerous beautiful places and attractions to visit each day. You are spoilt for choice. From beautiful beaches and stunning vistas, you won’t want to leave this Italian paradise. In the northern area, you might want to include Palermo, Monreale, Cefalù, Castelbuono, Erice, Segesta, Marsala, and Trapani to your must-see list. The island's eastern coast is also worth exploring, starting from the famous cities of Taormina, Catania, Syracuse, Noto, and Ragusa and the utterly unique volcanic peak of Mt. Etna.

Taormina, one of the most famous towns in Sicily, is located high atop Mount Tauro. The magnificent Mediterranean blue bay and the nearby smoldering Mt. Etna merge into a spectacular view that can be seen from almost any point in the city. Taormina is a haven for tourists, offering a great number of restaurants, bars, clubs, entertainment, and sports venues. Take a stroll along the Corso and be sure to stop at one of the local cafés for a taste of granite (the original version of Italian ice!) and a piece of frutta martorana (marzipan sweets).
