My husband and I are thinking of renting in Toarmina in Feb. and March of 2011. How cold does it get and does it eliminate some outdoor activities? I appreciate any help I can get.
Hello, I planned to spend relaxing holidays with my wife in Taormina during the first two weeks of September. I'm going to make a reservation at the Hotel Villa Schuler as I found this place very comfortable and from their own website (www.hotelvillaschuler.com) seems to be runned with passion. Does anyone know this hotel? Do you have any other suggestion? I just want to be sure to make the right choice... Thanks

Rome FCO to Catania should I fly Meridiana or Air One Posted: Mon June 8, 2009 11:34 PM UTC I need to fly from FCO to Catania and have been looking at prices and schedules. I am flying into FCO on August 1 at 8:05 and saw that there was a around 12:50 to CTA on Meridiana, but after a day and a half I have not been succesful buying a ticket on their website. I noticed that the real carrier is Wind jet maybe I have to go to their website. As I looked about comments about the service on Wind jet I am now thinking I should try Air one. I will be returning on Aug 6 and thought that I would get a round trip to FCO CTA then from FCO I go to La Spezia. Should I go to Roma Termini and get a train from there to La Spezia? Thank you for any comments on the airlines, I do want to buy this ticket today.
Hello, I am from Montréal, Canada and I am planning to stay about 10 days in Taormina late June. I would like to explore places such as Siracusa, Agrigento, the Etna region, Eolian islands and Monreale during my stay. Is there any information I can get about one-day trips from Taormina before leaving? Are prices and schedule available on line? Thank you in advance, Guy
Can any local please tell me when this festival is scheduled this year. Thanks
I have read all the links and looked at alot of websites but i am still not sure what to do. The more I read, the more confusing it gets...(I guess i am just tired from planning a 2 week trip) We will be staying in Taormina for 2 nights. We really want to go to Mt Etna.. and get as high as we can without the big walk..or maybe if we feel like it..we will try the ascent on foot. I know some tour companies only go so far up... We will be there the first week in May. 1. Which side is the best side to see the cone of the crater, or at least get a good picture of it..The north or south. They are so different from each other 2.take a tour from Catania or Taormina? 3. We will have a rent car..so should we drive up part of the ways..to the summit or base, then hire a guide? the South looks intersting with the cable cars and the 4x4 jeeps..but is the North side a better view? 4. What would you do? Thank you. ( sorry about all the questions, but if any of you need advice about the Mayan Riviera, Mexico...I'm your girl)

Hi, How can we get from Catania Airport to Letojanni? I know that there are three options: 1. taxi; 2. train; 3. bus. Which one is the most effective way (i.e. value for money)? I have researched the bus website and see that there is a bus that goes from Cantaia Airport to Taormina and then another one that goes from Taormina to Letojanni (on http://www.interbus.it/). How can I reserve/get tickets?? I don't have much information on the train or taxi options. Does anyone know about these? Thanks for the help. Melissa

We are arriving in Messina by cruise ship on Oct. 29th from 8 AM to 6 PM. Our questions: 1. Is it possible to walk from the port to the nearest train or bus station? 2. Is it recommended that we try for both Taormina & Mt. Etna? 3. Is the cruise ships tour the best alternative to do both? We would like to avoid the prohibitive pricing of the cruise ship tours it at all possible. Thanks to all for any information. [One of us speaks Italian]

Hello, Me and my husband, we are planning to visit Taormina in september (17-23 september). I assume that the weather is still nice in september in Sicilly? Or not, :). But how is the temperature of the sea, because I can not go to the seaside without taking baths. I am not so sure, because I heard that sometimes the water of an island is not so warm. Thanks a lot, Alina

last year my nephew traveled to Sicily, he bought a black zipped hoodie sweater that says "Sicily" across the front when it is zipped, it is black with white lettering. I have tried to find out where he bought it. He says it was in Taormina but he can't find the receipt. I love it and would like to purchase one. I am a female and would probably take a size large, if they run small, medium if the run true to size. could you help me locate the sweater? Thank you for giving this your prompt attention.
