Taormina is a lovely, small town on the east coast of Sicily. It's located between Messina and Catania. This is a touristic place and one you shouldn't miss if you're traveling around Sicily. The special thing about Taormina is that is perched on a cliff just above the Ionian sea -- the views are amazing once you start going up on the steep road until you get to the old town. When you get to Taormina, you'll have the amazing feeling of having found the real picture of the Mediterranean people and landscapes.

The easiest way to get to Taormina is by car -- if you are on a short scheduled trip, book a rental car in advance, especially in summer, because sometimes there is shortage of cars on the entire island.

When you get here, make sure you get to the beach with the aerial tramway. If you are looking for ruins, you'll find a very big archeological site where you can visit the surrounding ruins of the ancient town. To just enjoy the amazing place that Taormina is, you need to go all the way up to the old town and enjoy the views along the way with the sea, the big hill, and the natural landscapes. If you look around you can also spot the hill with a castle on the top -- this castle is famous because it's really difficult to get there. In the old town you'll find the Duomo, Casa Cipolla, and the most emblematic monument in Taormina -- the ancient theatre that is really well preserved and is still in use. As you can imagine, the town has also nice lively bars, some of them with great views.

The hostels in Taormina are simple but with a cosy vibe. The best place to stay is in the old town, up in the hill, but if you have a car the location is not that important. The hostels in Taormina are usually full in the summer, so try to book in advance.
