Castelmola

Castelmola holidays

High up in the hills above Taormina, you’ll find this marvellous medieval village that was once considered to be Taormina’s ancient acropolis. As you would expect from this kind of height, the views are nothing less than spectacular. From here, you can see across to Mount Etna and down to the bay of Giardini Naxos.

Walk this way

Fancy stretching your legs on a downhill walk? Within an hour, you can be in the bustling town of Taormina. Don’t forget, you’ll have to take on the steep walk on your way back, so make sure you’ve packed some comfy shoes. If you don’t feel up to it, you could always hop on the bus instead!

A hilltop hideaway

Although around only one mile away from Taormina, the vibe of this place is totally different. It’s still a highlight for visitors to the area but the streets and restaurants are much less crowded, giving it a more authentic feel. If you’re looking to get away from it all, this could be just the place.
