Taormina and Castelmola Private Tour

Beautifully located on Mount Tauro with Etna brooding in the background, Taormina's quaint side streets offer an intoxicating slice of La Dolce Vita. Nowadays unlike other Sicilian towns, even Palermo, Taormina is a shoppers' paradise.
Once arrived in Corso Umberto you will be free to walk around and visit Taormina's most important monuments: the superb Greek-Roman theater, Corvaja Palace, the Cathedral, the Public Garden (Parco Duchi di Cesarò). Then you can enjoy a typical Sicilian lunch or a refreshing lemon granita in one of the family run restaurants and bars surrounded by breathtaking views.
In the afternoon, we continue the tour to Castelmola, this village occupying a strategic position up behind Taormina, centres around the picturesque little Piazzetta del Duomo. In one of the bars in the main square, we will have the chance to taste the famous "almond wine". Return to the harbour and time to say arrivederci Sicilia, greetings.


Taormina with a beautiful sight of the Mont Etna and the sea, you will visit the main places and discover the rich History of those places

A Recent Review of this tour

We were a family of 4 traveling on the Celebrity Equinox. We selected Diego's Tour of Taormina/Castelmola. He was awesome. He was at the pier waiting for us when our ship docked. He had a sign with our name on it. We got going right away.. He had water for all of us. His Van was clean and rode very well. We enjoyed our trip very much. He communicates extremely well with exact plans. He even texted me while we had free time to make sure we were doing okay. i would highly recommend..
