As we strolled down the cobblestone streets hand-in-hand, it was as though we were transported to a romantic town from yesteryear. Gelato shops, pizzerias, and fine Italian leather shops lined the winding streets and beckoned us try a taste of their decadent offerings. The sounds of local musicians playing old-world Italian music glided over our ears while the nearby Ionian Sea blew a cool breeze over our bodies. We had officially entered the most romantic city in the world: Taormina Sicily. For anyone looking for a romantic getaway, look no further than this romantic gem perched high on a mountain above the sea.
