"Sweet little town perched on a hill at your feet with a beautiful blue sea that bathes Isola Bella: You are the pearl of the Ionian Taormina." ( Grazia Denaro - La perla dello Ionio Taormina)
Taormina is a charming town perched on Mount Tauro to 206 meters above sea level.
In ancient times the Sicilians lived there until the landing of the Greeks who first founded Naxos in 735 a.C. ( today Giardini Naxos).
Taormina (called Tauromenion) was colonized by the Greeks in 358 a.C.
