Idyllicly perched on a rocky promontory high above the sea, Taormina has been the most popular tourist destination on Sicily for a couple of hundred of years. Beautifully restored mediaeval buildings, breathtaking views around the corner. The ancient theater is without question the most important feature in Taormina, because of its natural setting, with splendid view toward the Calabrian coast, the Ionian coast of Sicily and the spectacular cone of Etna. While in Sicily, Francis Coppola filmed his masterpiece "The Godfather"? If youve seen the movie, you´ll recognize Bar Vitelli, in the tiny village of Savoca, at first glance: it is exactly the same as it was on the silver screen.
