Enthralled, enchanted, enriched. There's no escaping the overwhelming feelings that will pervade you when first you lay your eyes on this unique location, enshrouded between Mount Etna and an endless fusion of greens and blues from the Mediterranean land and sea. Taormina will have you fall in love with its variety and contrasts, with its mysterious and multifaceted personality, with an out-of-this-world marriage of nature, culture, and history. Just like it has been doing for thousands of years.
Each and every corner of Taormina tells you a thousand and one tales, a string of precious stories united by the same unfaltering character forged by centuries of harmony and contrasts. Its very essence is inspiration. No wonder artists and writers from all over the world have chosen this shining jewel as their creative nest. D.H. Lawrence, Oscar Wilde, Goethe, Alexandre Dumas, Truman Capote, Greta Garbo, Richard Wagner, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Klimt, Federico Fellini, Francis Ford Coppola, Dolce and Gabbana, are but a few great names that were swiped away and inspired by amazing Taormina.
As Guy de Maupassant, another famous lover of Taormina, said, “were a man to spend only one day in Sicily and ask, "What must one see?" I would answer him without hesitation, "Taormina." It is only a landscape, but a landscape where you find everything on earth that seems made to seduce the eyes, the mind and the imagination”.
When you sit among its solid buildings on a serene, warm and scented night, listening to the myriads of stories from old times whispered by the sweet salty breeze. When you walk hand in hand on the ivory sand-beaches and your gown becomes one with the white lacy hem of the turquoise waves. When you look down from the high rocky cliffs and lose yourselves in the endless horizon of blues and greens fused into a palette of extraordinary colours. When you close your eyes and let thousands of years of love, promises, vows, fill your heart and soul. This is when you realize that you are in the perfect place where to seal your beings into a promise of eternal love. All you have to do is choosing the right scenery to suit your personalities from the infinite variety of natural scenic designs offered by this enshrouded location. So, open your heart and be inspired, just like all those artists have done throughout the years, and still do.
A wedding in Taormina is not just an unforgettable memory. It's an eternal masterpiece.
