Giardini Naxos and Taormina - Ancestry and relaxing

Dear all,

Hoping to travel to Sicily at the end of our Italy trip Sept/Oct 2018.

My husband and I and our 2 girls. Who will be aged 9 and 3.

I have actually done some ancestry research which shows an ancestor born in Taormina. Bizarrely, my husband and I were thinking beach resort in Giardini Naxos for the end of our trip before I found this out.

Please - if you have an advice, stories, places to see, suggestions - we would love to hear them!

We will be coming from Bari, Trani, Puglia to Giardini. Via plane, Messina I'd presume. Just starting out with research.

SOOOOOOO excited!

Many thanks,

Laura

You would fly from Bari to Catania.

There's no airport in Messina.
