It's possible to reach too Taormina by train (Giardini-Naxos station) and by plane (Catania airport is 60 Km distant). Taormina, beyond to offer its treasures of art, its natural beauties, its cultural shows and its intense nighttime life, it is the ideal center to complete short excursions to the most fascinating and interesting places in Oriental Sicily: the adjacent Castelmola and Naxos, the near Alcantara Gorges, Messina and Eolian islands, Etna, the baroque Acireale, Acitrezza and Timpa, Catania and Siracusa.
