For some Sicilian luxury, excellent restaurants and evening views of Mount Etna's latest spectacular performance, Tormina is hard to beat. The main street of Corso Umberto boasts a plethora of shops, bars & restaurants and often the best ones are tucked away down romantic stepped side streets. If you need some beach time, a cable car whisks you down to the Mazzaro beach area and the nearby "Beautiful Island" of Isola Bella.
