Taormina & Castelmola
Beautifully located on Mount Tauro with Etna brooding in the background, Taormina's quaint side streets offer an intoxicating slice of La Dolce Vita.
Experience a wonderful day trip and walk around this cliff-top fascinating town with us. Your day begins when your English speaking driver greets you at your port of call or hotel. After a leisurely drive through the dreamy Sicilian landscape, you'll reach one of the most beautiful bays in the world: Isola Bella below Taormina. Here you can walk down to the fabulous rocky shore and into the emerald blue-green waters of the Ionian sea, a magical spot to relax and soak up the Sicilian sun. This little corner of Sicily will sweep you off your feet.
Your driver will then take you up on a scenic drive to arrive at Taormina's main street while providing a lot of information about things to do and where to go. After a series of switchbacks, before reaching the town, we'll pull over at the panoramic point that offers dramatic views of the Sicilian coast and the Italian peninsula.
Once arrived in Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina, you will be free to walk around, shop and check out the most important monuments: the superb Greek-Roman theater, Corvaja Palace, the Cathedral and the Public Garden. Then you can enjoy a typical Sicilian lunch in one of the town’s lovely restaurants.
The tour continues when your driver picks you up at the designated meeting point to venture into Castelmola, a village perched above Taormina. Warm friendly people and spectacular panoramas characterize this lovely hamlet that is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
