The village of Taormina, on the east coast of Sicily, lies in an elevated position of amazing beauty. The location affords magnificent views combining sea and sky of a marvelous blue and miles of a curving coastline, and picturesque mountain scenery. You will first visit the most impressive monument of the city: the Greek-Roman Theatre (there is still uncertainty of its Greek versus Roman origin). It has the finest site of any theatre in the world and one of the most striking monuments of antiquity. After contemplating this true wonder, you will walk back along Via Teatro Greco to the Villa Comunale: the public gardens which are planted with a huge variety of flowering plants and shrubs ranging from the most common to the exotic, which your guide will explain to you in detail. The visit continues to the village center, with the cathedral and the Corso Umberto I, Piazza 9 Aprile, with its lovely Clock Tower and Church of S. Giuseppe.
