Taormina, Sicily Luxury Cruises

Taormina sits on the eastern coast of Sicily, within the island’s province of Messina. This small charming town was constructed on a hillside and is overlooked by the imposing and dramatic Mount Etna. The town’s beautiful surroundings have served as inspiration throughout history for some of the world’s most famous artists, writers and directors including Oscar Wilde, Francis Ford Coppola and Woody Allen, to name just a few, who often enjoyed a sojourn in the town whilst staying in Sicily. The region’s natural beauty is not the limits of its charm, as the area also boasts a collection of remarkable ancient ruins dating back to the Roman era, alongside a variety of stunning modern developments. Although Taormina may be associated with the rich and famous the town is accessible to all, combining historic elements with terrific contemporary design to create a unique and enchanting ambience.
