Seeing Sicily: The DISSH Guide To Taormina

The Pearl of the Mediterranean

Positioned on the very tip of a volcanic trail and rich with history - Taormina is the must visit town in Southern Italy (or at least that's what our Product team told our Owner). Spend 4 days in Taormina with the DISSH Design team.


Stay At • Grant Hotel Timeo

The boutique hotel that dominated your feed this Summer. 
Perched on top of the cliffside, overlooking the town and Mount Etna, Grant Hotel Timeo is right in the heart of Taormina's winding streets.Eat Like A Local • Osteria da Rita

You know our recommendation is sincere when we say we visited this restaurant twice during our short stay in the area. This family owned restaurant offers the best of Sicilian cuisine. Hot tip: order seafood and the Pasta alla Norma.

Shop Responsibly • Main Town

Taormina is full of locally made souvenirs including Teste di Moro - a traditional Sicilian hand painted ceramic. A special mention to the incredible pistachio liqueur.Dress Like a Local • Easy Linen

This hilltop town is all about easy linen dresses and sets, crochet knitwear and statement prints. Less is more when dressing for Taormina, so focus on easy to throw on pieces perfect for walking and exploring. 

Spend The Day • Eat, Drink, Swim

Enjoy the slower pace as you eat your way through town, taking in sites like the Teatro Antico di Taormina. Swim over to Isola Bella - a small bay island with a colorful history, and end the day with an Aperitivo and cannoli.
