Your guide will meet you at your hotel for a walking tour of Taormina, undoubtedly the most chic town on the Ionian coast. It has been attracting visitors since the days of the Grand Tour, the most famous being Goethe, who described it as ‘A strip of paradise on earth’. D.H. Lawrence lived here for three years, at the top of the valley behind the Greek theatre, so named because the original theatre was indeed built by the Greeks, though what you will see dates mainly from Roman times. It is from here that you will get some stunning views of Taormina’s two bays and across to Calabria on the mainland, with Mount Etna as a backdrop in the other direction. There is one main pedestrianised street with some very impressive flower-decked mansions and some seriously smart shops on the ground floors.
