POI 1 Tour Image
So glad you could meet me here in beautiful Taormina, Sicily! I thought this pull off to capture the gorgeous view of the sea and the town of Taormina was the perfect spot to connect and begin our drive today. 

Taormina’s charming atmosphere has been spreading joy for many years. With a history dating back to the 4th century BC, it was originally founded as a Greek colony. Since then it has gone through many transformations due to the different cultures that have stepped in. The town has seen Roman rule, Byzantine, and Norman rule that has ultimately influenced its architecture, art, religion, and culture. 

Taormina is now a popular destination for tourists and locals alike with its rich history, stunning views, and the many events and festivals that celebrate the town’s heritage. 

We will now make our way up the winding roads of this amazing coastal town, and I promise there will be countless places to pull off and take in the panoramic views of Taormina!

Coming up here on the right is another excellent spot to catch a view. There will be a parking lot where you will be able to leave the car. You’ll see some stairs that lead to a large square that hangs over the edge of the peninsula. It is stunning!
