    Definitely worth a visit. Matches anything one would see in Greece. A couple of the temples are remarkably well preserved. An amazing setting for the temples.

    Lovely town — with lively streets and piazzas, and also quiet alleys and scenic views. Superb dining options. Street market is a worth a visit in the mornings while the food stalls are there.

    Stunning views. Surprisingly developed at the main car Park- All amenities and lots of similar gift shops. Ignore the shops and focus on the landscape and the scale of the volcano!

    Great historic site with fascinating views. The museum was very interesting despite its very small size and the liberty to walk wherever you want is also a big positive. The only downside is the price which, combined with Taormina’s overall high prices, is not ideal. However I think everyone who visits Taormina has to see this site for its rich history and incredible view of the Ionian Sea.

    I have been living by beach places for almost all my life, but this location definitively caught my attention!
    What an amazing place!

    When our group arrived, this cathedral was closed, so our guide could tell its history only in the courtyard, highlighting its unique architecture! The church was built in 1185. Certain elements of the corner towers were added in the XV. and XVI. century and during the late XVIII. century it got its neoclassical appearance. During our previous visit, we were inside the cathedral and were somewhat disappointed with its interior - but we saw the four main sarcophagi of the Norman rulers of Sicily.

    Gorgeous palace dating back to the 1100s, containing the Capella Palatina from 1132. The chapel was built in Norman/Byzantine/Arab style and is quite beautiful. The gardens outside are amazing, too.

    Best day, stunning hike with breathtaking views of coves and mountains..
    we spent a few hours walking and stopped off at two of the Calas for much needed cooling off in the crystal clear water
    Hiking is hilly but paths are well maintained albeit rocky
    Definitely need trainers or hiking boots,p and plenty of water and snacks as there is nothing in the reserve once you enter we made the mistake of not bringing enough and had to cut our time on the beach short after hours in the sun
    A must visit in the area

    The mosaics in Villa Romana del Casale are astounding. There are over 37,000 sq. feet of beautiful mosaics here you will not see at any other ancient site. It is a wonderful thing that mud preserved these floors. Since it was mud, the walls are not well preserved and it is difficult to see the wall frescoes. The mosaics help to tell stories of ancient life and it is a good idea to go through with a guide.

    We visited the tonnara of Favignana our last day on the Egadis. The tonnara is an interesting example of industrial architecture and it has a sea turtles clinic inside the building. Liliana led in a very inspiring visit, where she taught us the almost mystic role of the rais alongside the different phases of tuna production. With the songs she shared with us, it was almost possible to feel the experience of the tonnara and its meaning not only for the industry but for the community as a whole. Absolutely recommended if you are in Favignana!

    Isola Bella was on our must do list for Taormina. It was one of those things that I did once but would never do again. We walked the 300 steps up and down, the climb up was slow and difficult. The only good thing was there were several spots along the way to take pictures. Once you get down to the bottom you have to walk through another beach area and a restaurant. Then you walk across the narrow strip of beach, fighting the waves, to get to Isola Bella. Once there there’s not much to do, the area is very small and you have to pay to actually visit the small island. Personally I wouldn’t recommend a visit, instead I would find a spot above in Taormina and take some nice pictures.

    The limestone formation heads out into the sea. It’s very pretty. It’s not that large. There is a place on the top to look down and you can walk the beach to see it. Pretty nice.
