When to go diving

From May to October

A Roman ship, carrying these marble columns, was sunk at Cape Taormina, 2000 years ago. Today, you can view their remains at 24 meters. It is interesting to view how nature reclaims its property, including a family of moray eels who setup house within the columns. 20 meters away, you may see another cave filled with cave shrimp, fish, and coral.
