When it gets dark in Taormina the lights go on and life moves on the Corso for the evening stroll.
The Ancient Theater of Taormina is one of the archaeological gems of Sicily. The theater has Greek origin but is Roman in its present form.
Spectacularly located, the town of Taormina is the most exclusive tourist destination of Sicily. The ancient theater, the fantastic view of Mount Etna that slopes down towards the Ionian Sea and the Dolce Vita mood make Taormina the essence of Sicily, at least for tourists. I was in Taormina in mid-March and I was lucky enough to get a first taste of summer.
