Discover Taormina

Via Teatro Greco 59, 98039 Taormina, Sicily, Italy

Nestled in the shadows of Mt Etna is one of Italy’s finest spots. Taormina has long been a highlight on the grand tour...and no wonder. Remnants of ancient civilisations stand proudly alongside chic residences. The endlessly stunning landscape creates a heady sense of joy wherever you look. You’ll notice a peaceful exuberance here, checked only by the sheer drama of Europe’s largest volcano looming in the distance.

Above the town, the ancient Greeks left a fitting tribute to the dramatic views—a grand amphitheatre. Enjoying the same perspective just steps away is Grand Hotel Timeo, our stunning luxury hotel.

In Sicily, the scenery is the spice of life and with Belmond, Taormina is spectacular from every angle.

Destination Guide: Unlock Taormina

For the past two centuries, artists and stars have been drawn to this charming little town. Yet long before it was part of the Grand Tour, Taormina inspired the Etruscans, Phoenicians and Ancient Greeks. It’s hardly surprising, this is one of the most enchanting places on earth.
