Taormina, Italy

At the base of Mt. Etna, a site of legendary battle between
gods and monsters in Greek mythology, sits the hilltop town of Taormina. Nested on Etna’s fertile volcanic soil, soaking in the Sicilian sun, offering views of Grecian ruins and beautiful bays, Taormina’s mythic history has transformed into an opulent present.

First immortalized as a resort town in Goethe’s

Italian Journey, and popularized by both philosopher-poets and film stars through the ages, Taormina remains the resort hub of Sicily and one of the most luxurious getaway spots in Italy.
