Village Castelmola, Taormina, Sicily, Italy

Castelmola overlooking Taormina is a small village on Sicily and off the beaten tourist track thus is relatively unspoiled. Did you know that Castelmola has spectacular views that can beat the ones in popular Taormina? It seems you can view the Ionian coast plus the monumental Etna, the Bay of Giardini-Naxos and the Cape of S. Alessio, the strait of Messina and the Calabrian coast in a single glance....

Note it is a steep climb so opting for a glass of local almond wine might be an apt reward after catching the intriguing views.
