Taormina, the well-known resort perched on top of Monte Tauro and looking down to the sparkling blue coastline, is one of the most fashionable summer Sicilian destinations. Located only 30 minutes from Catania International Airport, Taormina offers a fantastic romantic atmosphere along its narrow pedestrian streets where jasmine and citrus scents permeate the air. The mild climate, the stunning view of Mount Etna (Europe’s highest active volcano), the art performances held in summer at the Greek theatre, a nearby 18 holes golf course, and a plethora of water activities available along the coast, attract visitors from everywhere. And thanks to the fertile volcanic soil, just a few miles from acres of vineyards and bountiful farms, not many other places in the country are as blessed as Taormina. Here, Villa Anika, located in the center of town is your piece of paradise to return to after a day spent discovering this enchanting region and marveling at its wonders. In the enchanting garden of Villa Anika, you will find wild orange trees, birds of paradise flower, Chica palms, and the fragrant creamy jasmine. In this dream-like oasis, you can take advantage of a furnished sundeck to take in the Sicilian sun, and of a large iron table with chairs under an awning to eat alfresco. This romantic villa is perfect for guests who want to enjoy the town of Taormina, in fact having a car here is not essential. For the beach lovers, the villa offers complimentary daily shuttle service to a private beach establishment. For those who want to enjoy the coast, the cable-car station to many beach resorts is just a few-minutes walk from the villa. Taormina is a fully serviced town and offers many restaurants, cafes, stores and a vibrant night-life.
