The rustic villages in the hills around Taormina are steeped in history as you'll discover during this exclusive excursion culminating with a delicious dinner. Casalvecchio Siculo and Limina are the stars of this Sicilian-infused evening. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
As you head inland along the Agrò valley, you'll encounter hilltop hamlets that have barely changed since the Middle Ages. This is the forgotten Sicily, just a short drive from the cosmopolitan coastal towns. At Casalvecchio Siculo, you'll visit the Norman-era church of Saints Peter and Paul, which looks much like it did back in the 12th century, and is exclusively opened for TUI guests.
Next, head to Limina for a Sicilian dinner at the family-run U Lantirnaru – ‘the Lantern Maker' – restaurant. A cooking demonstration from Eleonora will show how macaroni and arancini are made. And then enjoy most homely dinner imaginable, with drinks and folk music included.
