I don’t think we could have loved Taormina any more. Everything about this insanely charming town is so special and unique. In our opinion, it’s a perfect vacation spot that you can’t pass up in Italy. It offers a great mix of culture, incredible food & wine, stunning architecture, beautiful scenery and of course, lots of fun. The city is lively, warm, and very welcoming. The streets are straight out of a painting and there is always something new to discover. One of the best pieces of advice we received from a local was to get lost wandering the charming streets here. That’s exactly what we did and what we also recommend you do as well! The best hidden gems are always found this way, aren’t they?
Ravello is like walking into an actual storybook – it’s so charming and picturesque. Along with some of the most amazing panoramic views in all of Italy, it’s rich in music, culture, art, and of course, food. I definitely recommend checking it out, even if you’re planning a quick daytrip. We loved the romantic vibe and slower pace. Everything is walking distance and the main town area doesn’t allow cars. There’s truly no place like it.
recommended that we stay longer than just a daytrip if possible which was great advice. There’s so much to explore and I think it’s one of those places that just gets better the longer you’re there. It was beautiful, relaxing, and so much fun! It really has it all – stunning views, designer fashion, LOTS of shopping, adventure, beach clubs, scenic views; you name it. So, here’s a breakdown of our favorite restaurants, recommendations, and tips!
