Cruising to Taormina, Sicily

A taste of traditional Italy

It's not difficult to feel the magic in Taormina. Characterised by its two sweeping bays - surrounded by a crop of mountains and gorgeous hills - there is some exceptionally breathtaking scenery here.

Located in Italy and bearing all the hallmarks you'd expect of a traditional town from this country, you can expect good architecture, a laid-back atmosphere and the warm waters of the Mediterranean sea.

Wandering through its long and winding alleys, you'll want to take note of Porta Messina and Porta Catania - areas once protected by a triple fortified series of walls. Evidence of these defences are still visible today.

It's also worth paying close attention to the clock tower that acts as an entrance gate to the old town. Rased to the ground in the 12th century before being reconstructed in the 17th, it's truly a wonder to behold.

If you have a passion for history, Italy and a great seaside location, Taormina is definitely your destination.
