The entrance to our charming boutique hotel Villa Taormina .

Stay: Villa Taormina 

Dates: June 4-7 

For 3 nights and 4 days, we holidayed as the local Italians do in the heart of Sicily in a town called Taormina.

Known for its upscale shops on Corso Umberto, rocky beaches and delicious food, we knew we were in for a treat. And it didn’t disappoint.

Rather than writing alot of detail as I normally do, I’m going with a more visual diary feel. I’ll caption out locations and special must-sees, but overall, keeping it short and simple!

Enjoy Taormina- 3 days is perfectly enough. xo

Day 1

Entering our beautiful hotel. How chic is this lobby? Love the vintage and minimal look.

Our bedroom was so simple. Stark white with warm brass tones. Tall ceilings with linen drapery. A modern bathroom with all the amenities but vintage accents.

After settling in, we headed straight onto Corso Umberto where we had continued “bruschetta fest 2019.” Is that a thing? If not, it should be. It was SO fresh and DELISH.

Sunset and martinis at our hotel rooftop with this hunk I get to call my husband.

Getting huge. 28 weeks over here.

For dinner, our concierge suggested Villa Zuccaro Pizzeria, the neighboring joint to our hotel. We sat under twinkly lights on the terrace and feasted on Margarita Pizzas and it was perfect for a casual first night meal.

Day 2

Breakfast from our hotel overlooking Taormina.

Even the egg holders are chic in Italy!

All pregnancy cravings checked off.

Bam Bam Bar for the win with the brioche and sorbet combo- it was heavenly.

Jim Bob and Sil Bob finally arrive!

Sunset cocktails at the Belmond Hotel Taormina. The view was epic, but the company even better.

Day 3

Beaching it like the Sicilians do.

It’s wild for this California native to see rocks on the beach. Not a fan I might add….

28 weeks and bumpin.

Not one to enjoy a slow beach day, Dave and I left the gang to explore a small beautiful village called Castelmola located at the very highest peak of the mountain. It turned out to be our favorite part of Taormina. The views, the quietness…it was so charming.

One last look at Castelmola.

Taormina was perfect for a 2-3 night stop to reunite with friends, enjoy great fresh food, and bask in the southern Italian sun. By the time we left, we were ready for our next stop…Lake Como here we come! xo
