Geography and Mount Etna put their stamp on Taormina. Feel history laid out before you in magnificent panoramic views on the way up to the town, where you can stroll down medieval lanes. See the famed Greek theatre (Teatro Greco) and its fantastic view of Etna. Or take a trip to the volcano itself and get a first-hand look at cones, craters and lava streams left by its eruptions over time. The colourful Corso Umberto is great to people-watch and get your fill of yummy gelato.
