The hilltop town of Taormina in the north-east of Sicily is where you are going to find the White Lotus or to give its title IRL, the San Domenico Palace, which was originally a convent. But have no panic, you really do not need to be the queen of Sicily to enjoy Taormina (soz Tanya, we really like you truly). Check out some of the filming areas we really like which you can go to:

Ancient Theatre of Taormina  

1 of the 1st stops on the Di Grasso family’s doomed excursion to Sicily and it is an imperious previous theatre. We know, you assume you’ve witnessed a single amphitheatre, and you have witnessed them all. We politely disagree. This one’s been fantastically preserved for hundreds of many years, and if you sit in the suitable location, the back again of the stage gets to be a window to see Mount Etna looming significant in the history.

Occur at the right time of the year, and you can even capture a overall performance and do tradition like it’s the 3rd century BC.

Bam Bar

This sweet lil café-bar is where Valentina enjoys a brief early early morning espresso just before trying to not chuck an Aperol at distinct guests on a every day foundation. When the coffee is mouth watering listed here, we’d propose this place’s staple which is granita – sorbet’s cooler cousin with a crystal-like texture. Occur here for breakfast and it is regular to have it with brioche and whipped cream. And we assume that chomping on a person of these though wanting above the beautiful solar-themed tilework is a pretty dreamy way to commence your working day.

Isola Bella

Don’t forget that creepy story Quentin advised about a small island just off the seaside? It is named Isola Bella, but it’s also identified as the Pearl of the Ionian Sea. And boy does it are living up to its name with lush green trees and outdated rockforms that glance like they could tell a thousand tales. Unfortunately it is presently closed to the general public, but get your self on a cable auto from city down to the seaside, and drink in the sun or a refreshing authentic Sicilian lemonade at a person of the bars on the entrance.

Trapani, Sicily

Corso Umberto 

We primarily see Ethan blowing off steam with an early early morning run down a deserted Corso Umberto, but usually this street is brimming with locals and travellers alike browsing sweet boutiques. Head to Piazza Duomo to get yourself a suitably significant scoop of gelato and forged your eye around the Ionian Sea. Or if you wished a swankier magic formula viewpoint, go marginally uphill to the Continental Lodge and wander up to the Sky Rooftop Bar. It’s bought large White Lotus vibes, but you really don’t need to be a guest of the hotel to get a drink there.

So sit down, look at the solar set and sip on the appropriately named Etna Samba or a Negroni Beer Oversight (it is not an mistake although seriously, rely on us)…
