Taormina and Castelmola 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Simon exceeded our expectations. He was there when we arrived, his English was very good and his knowledge the island was impressive. He took us to coastal villages with great views of the coast.
