Taormina water

Acqua di Taormina is inspired by the city that was born with the name Tauromenium, a name it still retains even if transformed into Taormina, which means dwelling on the Tauro, the mountain on which it was built. The historian Diodorus attributes the name of the city to both the Sicilians and the Greeks.

The Sicels lived in the fortress of Taormina living on agriculture and livestock breeding even before the landing of the Calcidesi Greeks in the bay, where at the mouth of the Alcantara river they founded Naxos the first Greek colony in Sicily.
