Taormina, the well-known resort perched on top of Monte Tauro and looking down to the sparkling blue coastline, is one of the most fashionable summer Sicilian destinations. Located only 30 minutes from Catania International Airport, Taormina offers a fantastic romantic atmosphere along its narrow pedestrian streets where jasmine and citrus scents permeate the air. The mild climate, the stunning view of Mount Etna (Europe’s highest active volcano), the art performances held in summer at the Greek theatre, a nearby 18 holes golf course, and a plethora of water activities available along the coast, attract visitors from everywhere. And thanks to the fertile volcanic soil, just a few miles from acres of vineyards and bountiful farms, not many other places in the country are as blessed as Taormina. Here, Villa Anika, located in the center of town is your piece of paradise to return to after a day spent discovering this enchanting region and marveling at its wonders.

The island of Sicily offers a number of wonderful places to visit on daytrips or excursions, including Taormina, Catania, Syracuse, Noto, Ragusa and the utterly unforgettable volcanic peak of Mt. Etna. As the highest active volcano in Europe and Sicily’s tallest mountain. Mt. Etna is a true natural wonder: don’t miss the chance to explore it by booking a guided excursion with our concierge.
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. A renowned archaeological destination backed by incredible history, Taormina is home to one of the most famous Greek Theaters in the world. This remarkable theater hosts “Taormina Arte,” the town’s annual summer international arts festival of film, music, dance and theatre. Taormina is a haven for tourists, offering a great number of restaurants, bars, clubs, entertainment and sport 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).
The distinctive beauty of Syracuse, rich with history and artistic presence, was featured in Giuseppe Tornatore’s movie “Malena”, starring Monica Bellucci. Since 1914, from early May to the end of June, the city has staged ancient comedies and tragedies in its Greek theatre. A stroll through the streets of Ortigia leads to the fascinating baroque cathedral that incorporates an ancient temple to Athena. Make sure you check the Fountain of Arethusa, site of the Greek legend.
Noto is the undisputed capital of Sicilian Baroque. Generally listed as one of the ‘must-see’ tourist attractions on the East coast of Sicily. The town was declared humanity heritage by UNESCO in 2002. Here you can enjoy the most beautiful non equipped beaches of the island, Eloro, Cittadella or Calamosche inside the natural reserve of Vendicari, which is also home to thousands of migrating flamingos and sea turtle nests. If you prefer the comfort of equipped beaches, check the ones in Noto Marina or San Lorenzo. If you are in this area on the third week of May, take note of the famous and suggestive “Infiorata”, a picturesque festival to welcome the spring, where local artists work overnight to prepare colorful real flower carpets all over the streets. Other sites worth visiting in the surroundings of Noto (by car) include Noto Antica – the older town – Modica, Palazzo Acreide, Ragusa – a similarly-appealing Baroque town – the necropolis at Pantalica and Ispica Caves.

The island of Sicily is distinctly different from the rest of Italy as it floats just off the toe of the Italian mainland. The Capital city Palermo is splendid with its chaos and treasures. Be prepared to explore the palaces, castles and churches which are a fusion of Arab, Norman, baroque, and Renaissance gems. Life in Palermo is quite full on. A very warm hearted and noisy affair.

The people of this city love to eat. Whether they are shopping, or on their way home from work, they are always enjoying little hot snacks prepared at street stalls. A famous chickpea fritta, custard filled croissant, potato croquette, or an oily pizza topped with onions and caciocavallo cheese are just a few examples of the delicious food available in the street stands.

Sicily is a part of Italy that starts to take on a flavour of Greece or of north Africa.
