Could anyone recommend a good area to stay that's within easy reach of Taormina by public transport? We do not want to stay in Taormina itself as we believe it will be expensive and crowded with tourists, rather like Positano which we visited last year. Positano was beautiful, but we were so glad we were staying in nearby Praiano! Somewhere on the outskirts of Taormina with easy access by bus would be ideal. We do not intend to hire a car, and we will be visiting in September. Thanks!
