Situated along the Northeast coast of Sicily, on the Gulf of Catania, Giardini di Naxos is the port for Taormina which rests 8 km south and 820 feet above the sea overlooked by Mount Etna. Originally the site of Naxos, the first Greek colony in Sicily, this pretty resort boasts a promenade with bars, restaurants and two beaches.
Naxos is also the gateway to the island of Sicily's strategically significant northeastern region. The first inhabitants of Sicily were the Sciani and Siculi, who were believed to have come from the mainland. During the eighth century, the Greeks discovered that these two groups had divided the island. After settling here, the Greeks were rivaled by the Carthaginians and later by the Romans who conquered part of the island to make use of its fertile soil. Following the first Punic War, the Romans gained complete control over the island. But before the island officially became part of Italy, the Byzantines, Tunisians, Saracens, and Normans all ruled for a time, each leaving part of their cultural and architectural influences behind.
