Events 2021 Taormina&Sicily

Events 2021

Dear guests and friends of Hotel Villa Schuler. In previous years, we have always tried to help our guests and anyone who wanted to come to Taormina to plan their vacations by providing them with a comprehensive calendar of events.

In 2020, virtually all events were canceled or postponed due to the pandemic. And, unfortunately some of them are again postponed to 2022. But we are happy to at least be able to announce a few events for the 2021 season. They all take place at the wonderful Teatro Antico of Taormina, one of the most beautiful open air locations of Italy.

We will continue to look for new events and keep you updated here on our Hotel Villa Schuler events page. It’s worth checking back every once in a while to see if we’ve found something new.

I’ll come to visit you for real this time and I’ll take this stuff with me, so that you can hear how the songs are when they are born, without arrangements and without too many colors. Raw… essential. We start again. Slowly but surely. I’ll see you at your house, it’s kind of my house now anyway.”
