Events 2023 Taormina&Sicily

Dear friends and guests of the Hotel Villa Schuler

It’s the same every year. We look for significant events for you in Taormina and find — at the beginning of the year — only a few, some of them not yet confirmed.

We have the most beautiful, exciting, romantic, and breathtaking venue on the whole island here in Taormina, the Ancient Theater! And it is a true sensation to experience a concert, an evening of ballet or opera, or a film screening here. But the Ancient Theater is not the only fascinating performance venue in Taormina. There is the small and refined Nazarena Theater, which hosts the much-loved performances of the Italian Opera, or the ancient roman Odeon, which is the setting for selected chamber concerts during the summer period, or the lovely baroque Chiesa Santa Caterina, which hosts the Taormina Classics concerts in autumn, and many other locations.

We promise that we will stay tuned, continuously looking for exciting events for you in Taormina.
