Island
“Isola Bella is a gorgeous pebbled beach which includes an islet of the same name. Isola Bella, known as the Pearl of the Ionian Sea, is considered the most charming and gorgeous beach of the district of Messina. Placed close at the foot of the town, the bay has a pebbled beach, but the most important attraction is the islet of the same name located in front of the beach characterised by a lush vegetation. The islet is connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of beach which is covered by water at high tide. Water is blue and clear, full of spectacular marine flora and a fascinating seabed.”

“Not recommended during high tourist season-as it's crowded while our beaches nearby are super calm. But its famous, fashionable and charming (don't pay the 5€ to entrance the isola-there is nothing really on there), but better use the cash for a local snorcheling boat trip or the cable car ('funivia Mazzarò') up into the village to check out the 'teatro greco'.”

“The Greek Theatre of Taormina is the most fascinating historical monument of the “pearl of the Ionian Sea”. It is one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions, so that Johann Wolfgang Goethe in his famous “Journey to Italy” wrote: “No theater audience has never had such a sight in front of him.” The greek-Roman theater is divided into three parts: the scene, the orchestra and the auditorium. The scene, which is in front of the auditorium, is the place where the actors acted. According to the experts’ reconstruction, this part was decorated with two rows of columns, one facing the other. The scene has also three large arched openings at a symmetric distance one another, and six niches placed three on the right and three on the left of the central arch. On the scene there are the remains of six column bases and four Corinthian columns that were raised after 1860. The auditorium is formed by a series of steps starting from the bottom and climbing upward, spreading up to the summit, where spectators were seated. The orchestra is the lowest level of the whole theatre. This space was intended for musicians who played during the performance. Dug directly in the hard rock of Mount Tauro, in the third century BC, it could accommodate thousands of sitting spectators. It is known that the Greeks architects used to build their most important buildings as if Nature could be part of them. The natural scenery was integrated with the architecture of the theatre, like light and air insinuated between the columns of a greek temple.The theatre shape could allow a perfect listening from any area of the auditorium. In the late imperial period, the theatre was adapted for gladiatorial games. With the fall of the West then, everything came to a end. The marbles were removed and so the monumental columns. Only after the end of the war, some sections of the original construction were completed by a great work of restoration.”

“Porta Messina segna l’ingresso nord del centro storico della città. Da essa si accede al Corso Umberto I°, la via principale di Taormina. Mentre Porta Catania è la porta di accesso del lato sud. Le due porte di ingresso facevano parte del triplice sistema di fortificazioni che si sviluppava da nord-est, realizzato dagli arabi per difendere la città. Tra le due porte si innalza la Porta di Mezzo nota anche come Torre dell’orologio. Porta Messina, inaugurata nel 1808 da Ferdinando IV di Borbone (come riportato nella lapide in cima alla Porta) è conosciuta anche come Porta Ferdinandea proprio in onore al re.”

“La via Teatro Greco, è la caratteristica via con antichi palazzi e negozietti di souvenir e prodotti tipici locali che da Piazza Badia conduce al Teatro Greco. A sinistra della via si apre una bella scalinata dedicata a Timoleone, generale di Corinto che a Taormina aveva istituito il suo quartier generale, e che liberò la Sicilia dai Tiranni e dal pericolo cartaginese. La scalinata imita quella di Trinità dei Monti in Piazza di Spagna a Roma, e qui in onore alla scalinata romana, ogni anno, nel mese di Maggio, vi sono esposte piante di azalee. Inoltre si può ammirare lo splendido palazzo dove visse Lady Florence Trevelyan, moglie del professor Salvatore Cacciola, ricca Lady inglese che fece costruire i giardini pubblici.”
