Sicily Weddings

Taormina - Giardini Naxos - Forza D'Agro

 
TAORMINA

Perched on a hilltop in a breathtaking position 200 metres above the coast on the eastern side of Sicily, the world-famous chic resort of Taormina has quite rightly been acclaimed as “the pearl of the Ionian sea”. You could not choose a more picturesque location anywhere else in Italy for your Exclusive Destination Wedding.

 

  

   

With breathtaking views over the sea towards both the mainland of Italy and magnificent Mount Etna the largest active volcano in europe, you will not be short of unique photographic locations for your wedding day. The town itself is particularly characteristic with its historical buildings and churches blending harmoniously into the fashionable main Corso Umberto; a pedestrianised shopping and dining street with its kaleidescope of alleyways and side lanes laden with more shops, bars and excellent typical restaurants.

 

For centuries Taormina has been the inspiration of poets and artists from all over the world, mainly due to its magnificent Greek Theatre dating back to the 3rd c BC; a place of culture and education for the ancient Greeks, later totally transformed by the Romans into an arena for their violent gladitorial combats. Having been pillaged and then abandoned for centuries, today it is the best example in the whole of Italy of the clearly visible transformation from Greek "theatre" into Roman "amphitheatre".

    

After extensive restoration works in 1955, this marvellously preserved structure with an absolutely stunning view now hosts a summer arts festival of music, theatre and dance (June July and August).

A spectacular three minute cable car journey takes visitors down to the charming pebble and coarse sand beaches of Mazzarò (Taormina mare) below, where plenty of watersports are available during the summer at the bathing establishments along the coastline.

Sicily has an outstanding wealth of historical monuments and archeaological treasures strung like jewels all over the island and an excellent choice of daily excursions to all the main sights operate from Taormina.
