First things first: Breakfast
Head to BamBar for the very best granita and brioche on the island ~and the prettiest for all you Instagram fans~ flavours range from the classics like coffee and strawberry to white fig and Jasmine.
A cool down
The sun is beginning to get oppressive by this time. Head to Isola Bella Beach for a much-needed respite from the sun. You can drive if you’re brave enough or catch a cable cart.
Lunch at Il Barcaiolo
Located right on the sea, fresh fish of course dominates the menu.
The sun is beginning to cool now, so this is the perfect time to squeeze in a bit of culture. The Greek Amphitheatre has become an emblem of Taormina and a reminder how influential the Greeks were to this island.
Not many people know about Casa Cuseni but this house, now museum, entertained important artists, writers and historians like Greta Garbo, Tennessee Williams, Denis Mack Smith, and Coco Chanel who later on incorporated the cross C’s in her brand from her inspired visit.
Get dressed up
Starting from Porta Catania, wonder the Corso Umberto. This street is the place to see and the place to be seen. Locals and tourists congregate down the promenade in their very best.
Aperitivo on the terrace of Belmond’s Grand Hotel Timeo
Cocktails is a must at this elegant spot. Hopefully you’ll be able to catch the sunset.
Late dinner at Trattoria Tiramisu’
A simple trattoria and very popular among locals. We can vouch and say that everything on the menu is good.
Stay at Sparviero Luxury Suites
We absolutely love these apartments. Oh by the way, it’s the best view of Isola Bella you’ll have in all of Taormina.

The rest is la storia as they say
