Just a few kilometres from Taormina is the pretty seaside town of Giardini Naxos, a lively and charming resort that takes pride in preserving its traditional lifestyle and culture.

This is a popular destination for Italians to holiday, providing a charming corner of Sicily that has grown from a sleepy fishing village to a thriving and beautiful seaside resort.

The long sand-and-pebble beach is divided into a free area where you can hire sunbeds, parasols and pedalos, and a lido part which you pay to use. There's also a man-made beach in the Recanati district where you can enjoy a wide range of watersports. In Summer the seafront comes alive with entertainment that gives you an insight into Sicilian culture, including the Naxos folk group performing in traditional costume, and the Opera dei Pupi, a famous puppet show, which is a treat for all ages.

You'll find lots of smart shops and boutiques in the old town, while the prom is lined with bars that come alive at night, and the harbour is the place to head to for great cafés and seafood restaurants. There are also lovely pizzerias and trattorias throughout the town. On Saturdays you can explore the lively local market of Recanati, selling souvenirs, clothes, shoes and local produce. This area also has lots of family appeal, with its funfair and open-air discos.

    The Ancient Greek Theatre of Taormina

    The ancient theatre in the centre of Taormina’s old town is without doubt a must-see when visiting the area. The construction of the theatre is believed to have taken place around the third century and to allow for its construction over 100,000 cubic metres of rock had to be manually removed from the mountain side.

    The theatre was built to accommodate dramatic performances and during the Roman times it was used for gladiatorial battles. It is still used to this day for theatrical performances and concerts and creates a stunning and dramatic backdrop.

    What adds to the majesty and grandeur of this fascinating historical site is its position suspended between sea and sky. Some of the best views of Mount Etna and the surrounding coastline can be viewed from this point.
