A half day to spend in one of the most famous tourist resorts in the Mediterranean; surrounded by transparent sea, history, and a very chic atmosphere, Taormina is truly a pearl of Sicily that will conquer you with its uniqueness.
Starting from the centre or the port of Catania you will be picked up by your professional driver to get to Taormina, a small but internationally renowned Sicilian town that lies just a few meters above sea level. Upon arrival, you will have time to explore the city as you like, perhaps enjoying a drink at the Wunderbar Café on Piazza IX Aprile, famous for hosting such stars as Tennessee Williams and Elizabeth Taylor.
The main street through the historic center of Taormina is called Corso Umberto. The two entrace gates, Porta Messina and Porta Catania, stand like book ends at opposite sides of the street and enclose all the authenticity and grace of this area. Take a stroll along its pedestrian path and explore the narrow side streets and eye-catching shop windows.
If your passion lies with art and history, then you cannot miss a visit to the Greco-Roman Theater in Taormina (entrance fee not included). Or if you prefer hiking and nature, you can head to the nearby hill where you can make the strenuous walk to the summit - the views will not disappoint! At the end of the tour, your driver will bring you to the drop off point youn choose in Catania.
If you are interested in discovering Taormina's artistic and cultural beauty, take a look at the Private full day tour of Taormina and Mount Etna from Catania, or the Excursion on the Mount Etna, with visit to the Isola Bella and Taormina.
