Isola bella - Taormina -

by fgfi

The beautiful bay of Isola Bella is just down below Taormina.It'is a lovely nature reserve. This rocky little island also once belonged to English aristocrat Florence Trevelyan, a woman who was a botany and ornithology lover who lived in Taormina. She built a small house and planted bushes here. Many many people on the beach, which is very small.


Isola Bella, can be walked to at low tide.Isola Bella, can be walked to at low tide.

direact train to taormina

by ringee

I was just made aware that possible there is a train i can take in reggio di calabria that takes the ferry to messina and straight down to taormina without me taking different modes of transportation with all the luggage is that true thank you for your assistance

If you want to leave from Reggio di Calabria (Centrale or Lido) you will have to change trains at Villa San Giovanni, which is where the ferry leaves from.
So, it would be easier to start your journey in Villa San Giovanni. Either direct trains or trains involving only one change (in Messina Centrale or Messina Marittima) will take you to Taormina Giardini in about two hours. On the direct IC Plus trains a reservation is mandatory!
Check out train schedules at (also in English).

I need some help.... I, Plus 3 other adults, am traveling Sunday 24 Sept from Naples to Taoramina, then 1 Dec to Sorrento, then 4 Dec up to Rome, then back to Naples to catch my flight home. How in the world do I do this? Should I get the one country three or four day Saver Pass? Is there a phone number at Trenatalia? The one on the website doesn't work... Looking for advice...

Thanks, jim

Travel Tips for Taormina

Palazzo Corvaja

by Lalique

This building is now occupied by Sicilian Travel board and some small exhibitions but it nevertheless worth stopping and admiring. The courtyard (which you can see on the pic) dates from the period of Arab domination, staircase and left wing were added later in 13C. The building was abandoned at some point and fell into decay, but was restored after WWII. You can clearly notice the succession of styles: the top of the tower is Arab, the front entrance and some windows are Catalan Gothic, the right wind is Norman.



Some time ago when i used to visit Taormina,cable cars used to take you from the top part ( town life)to the bottom part ( beach part) but now i believe that one have to take to the stairs instead!
Taormina is peched 200 m above the crystal clear sea and is like a beutiful terrace offering magnificent views of the coast and mount Etna.The town has endlessly winding medievial streets and tiny passages,each with its own secrets....andgreat restaurants ,cafes and ice cream bars. During the day,Taormina is a beautiful town where you casually linger over a coffee,tucking into a couple of ricotta cannoli.In the evenings, the atmosphere in Taormina is simply enchanting whether you stroll the illuminated streets or indulge in the view of the coast over a delicious dinner.

Noto is one of the most beutiful towns in Sicily.Rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in 1693 and now is an Architactural gem.every building in the centre lends toa harmony and unity in the Baroque style which is made even more evident by the rose-coloured stone used in the towns construction.
the outstanding Palazzo Nicolaci is adorned with an amazing array of balconies each of which has a story entwined in its intricate carvings.Opposite there is the Nicolaci is Cafe Agora where two brothers serve up the most delightful food ( the sugo nero is exeptional!)

RAGUSA IBLA is the older part of Ragusa were one can walk along narrow streets amid wonderful Baroque buildings and also the excellent granita in the delightful,sloping square in front of the Basilika di San Giorgio.

SIRACUSA is a huge sprawling city with a marvellous old core called Ortigia by the sea.
Narrow streets open suddenly onto beutiful,spacious squares such as Piazza Archimede and Piazza del Duomo( for the film buffs the lovely square featured in the film Marilena was shot here) The Duomo itself is an incredible building with a mix of architectural and of course the cafes in the squares all serve perfect cappuccinos and strettos- what do you expect!!


Spend a day bin Taormina...dine walk in the old part of town and then have a dip in one of the beaches

"Fine dining at TAORMINA"

The food is simply fantastic especially prepered for your taste...just choose one of the many restaurants at a table two hours before ....go sightseeing in the old part of town....and presto you will have a reserved table at noon just at the edge facing the beach with a view.
