Events 2021 Taormina&Sicily

Preview 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. Now we are happy to announce at least a few events for the 2021 season. Most of them are events that have been postponed from 2020 to 2021. 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.
