Experience the wonder of Sicily with a Monastery Stay in Taormina!
The Mediterranean’s largest island, Sicily, is a sun drenched region with countless things to see and do. While many visitors to the island flock to Palermo (the capital of Sicily), Cefalu and the Greek ruins of Agrigento, the east coast has plenty to offer, including the ancient hillside town of Taormina overlooking the Mediterranean Sea – so hire a car and hit the road for your Sicily Roadtrip!
Taormina – life in the shadow of Mt. Etna
Sitting on the side of a mountain overlooking the glistening Mediterranean, Taormina is a resort town with plenty of old world charm. The Teatro Antico di Taormina (ancient theatre of Taormina) is a stunningly well preserved amphitheatre dating back to the 3rd century BC.
The theatre still hosts concerts and performances today and can seat up to 5000 people – well worth a visit! Check out www.taormina-arte.com for what’s on – cinema, classical & pop concerts for your visit to Taormina.
Venture up the hill from the theatre and there are plenty more attractions in the heart of Taormina. The duomo and other churches, castles, palaces and the old city gates can easily fill your days. When the sun goes down, find you way to one of the many exceptional restaurants for some Sicilian cuisine and local wine.
