What to expect

The first step is the visit of Castelmola, a picturesque village just above Taormina. Here you can enjoy a beautiful landscape, with a wonderful overlook of Mount Etna (over 3,330 meters high, the highest active volcano in Europe), and the magnificent bay of Giardini - Naxos.

We will then get to Taormina and to Porta Catania and we will have a walk along Corso Umberto, the ancient Roman street Valeria. You can visit either on your own or with a tourist guide (upon request) the Greek-Roman theatre, the oldest churches and monuments, the most exclusive shops, famous restaurants, pastries and ice cream shops to taste typical Sicilian specialties and sweets. You will be enchanted by Taormina, the charming pearl of the Mediterranean which will be sure to seduce every visitor.

For those who leave from Messina at the end of the tour there will be a short visit of the historic center of the city: the square of the cathedral with the biggest astronomical clock in the world, the church of the Catalans which is an extraordinary example of Arab-Norman art and the panoramic terrace between the Shrine of Christ the King and the Sanctuary of Montalto where you can admire the Strait of Messina.
