Taormina has been one of Sicily's top travel destinations since it became part of the European Grand Tour in the 19th century and Sicily's first resort. The romantic town has remnants of its Greek and Roman habitation, a fine medieval quarter and castle ruins, and modern shops and restaurants. Perched on the side of Monte Tauro and often referred to as the ‘Sicilian Monte Carlo’, Taormina offers fantastic views of the coast and Mt. Etna volcano. Below the town are excellent beaches where one can swim in the clear sea water. It is also famous for its annual arts festival, with plays, concerts and a film festival held outdoors in the Greek Theater throughout most of the year.
