Volcanic Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea provide the cinema-worthy backdrop for Taormina, Sicily's legendary resort town. Twisting medieval streets and a second-century Greek theater add to its romantic air, which inspired the writings of D.H. Lawrence and Truman Capote. Take a cable-car to the nearby beaches or while away an afternoon on the car-free Corso Umberto I, the main shopping street. Panoramic views await those who stroll uphill behind the Church of St. Joseph to the village of Castelmola.
