Geographically located between Europe and Africa, this sun drenched Mediterranean island is a unique place full of art, archaeology, history, folklore, breathtaking scenery and, of course, great food! The world’s first multicultural society, Sicily is Italy’s and Europe’s most historically cosmopolitan region, having been ruled by Asians, Africans and Europeans.
Sicily is home to heavenly beaches, amazing mountains and Europe’s largest volcano, Mount Etna. Each scenic region offers something different. In north eastern Nebrodi Mountains you’ll find unexpectedly lush forests whilst the central regions consist of rugged land and rolling hills with vineyards, ancient olive groves, almond orchards and endless wheat fields. A world unto itself, Sicily in all its complexities, is a land like no other – an island of striking natural beauty and dramatic scenery boasting in rich history and culture.
We invite you to explore the amazing area of Taormina and villages of Giardini Naxos and Letojanni, all serviced by direct flights from Dublin to Catania.
Taormina, the most fashionable and well established Sicilian resort, has endlessly winding medieval streets and tiny passages, each with its own secrets – great restaurants, cafés and ice cream bars.
Taormina Mare is the name given to the bays beneath Taormina’s clifftop centre, so one gets fantastic beaches to bask on, plus a beautiful resort at your fingertips.
The resort is renowned for its fantastic sandy beaches and abundance of stylish hotels and restaurants in the area.
With population of about 2500 and located just a few kilometres from Taormina, this picturesque resort offers everything for an enjoyable sea-side holiday, with its restaurants, bars, amazing beaches and an abundance of possibilities for amusement, pursuing some sports or just relaxing.
