Just starting planning

I'm exploring the idea of spending a week in Taormina next summer, end of July.

Can someone please give me some pros and cons of staying on the hill in the central area or staying down on the beach?

We enjoy a nice meal out every evening, simple lunch/picnic.

Thanks for any ideas you can share!

Welcome to Sicily HSSTRAVELER!

End of July is very hot and busy in Taormina....

Taormina is very charming and the views are far more impressive from Taormina than from Taormina Mare – There are also more hotels and restaurants in Taormina as well as more convenient transport connections. Many hotels in Taormina runs shuttle services to the beaches below on the coast.

Thank you Vagabonda! I hoped you would reply. I've read many of your great bits of advise.

I have no control over when I visit. Our main purpose for our trips to Italy are to visit my Father in Law's village in Abruzzo for Festa. That is the first weekend in August. So must be in Fallo by August 2. We've grown used to the conditions in various parts of Italy in late July and early August... Which is why the beach areas attract us!

I do see many more choices above in Taormina. I've identified a few possible hotels. We perfer apartments so I will research for those as well.

I'm sure I'll have additional questions over the next several months. I'll look forward to your informative replies!

Prego HSSTRAVELER,

The town itself offers more than the beach area below and you can always visit the beach during the day from the town, but then also enjoy the town at night.

If you prefer apartments, there’s a range of possibilities.....
