Postcard from Taormina


Taormina, in Southern Sicily, is the quintessential Italian town perched high upon a hill with unbelievable panoramic views of the sea below.

Albeit, it is Sicily’s most popular vacation destination, and completely engulfed by tourists. For us, it was perfect to just spend the day there.

However, the town of Taormina is completely charming with its candy-coloured buildings, winding narrow lanes, historic architectural ruins definitely worth visiting, and of course, views overlooking the Mediterranean as far as the eye can see. Here’s how to spend a day or two in Sicily’s most picturesque town with this Taormina Travel Guide:
