Mention the Italian island of Sicily to people and it’ll mean many different things. Take your pick from any of the following; majestic Mount Etna, Greek ruins, seafood, exemplary beaches, fascinating history, a vast history (think Greeks, Romans, Germanics, Byzantine, Vikings, Normans, Spanish; the list goes on), street food, sweets, good wine and wonderful hospitality. But if there’s one thing which stands out here and now in the summer of 2020, then it’s Sicily’s association with the perfect break. And the very reason why hordes of British sun (and culture) seekers pack their troubles and suitcases and head out to this southernmost part of Italy with such regularity. Sicily is of course the geographically-resplendent football which the boot of Italy has kicked into Mediterranean touch, and for its part Taormina is located on the island’s east coast, overlooking the glimmering aquamarine waters of the Ionian Sea. Described as an intimately-sized, habitually inviting town, Taormina is architecturally populated with enchanting ancient buildings, while being framed from behind by rocky outcrops capped with Greek ruins. Add into the heady mix golden beaches, inspiring Mediterranean scenery, narrow cobbled streets, cosy bars, seafood restaurants and bijou boutiques, and the phrase ‘utter escapism’ springs readily to mind.
