Recanati is the southern end of the Giardini-Naxos area and mostly an area full of hotel complexes and supermarkets and restaurants geared up for those. Not the first place I would stay in (although good for children) but convenient for those getting around a lot by bus as there is a major bus station here too.
Giardini-Naxos, Sicily. The whole town is a tourist trap, unfortunately. Nice nature and Etna is near...
