What to Expect
You will be met at the Catania port and begin a drive that will take you to two of Sicily’s most scenic villages. This full-day shore excursion begins in Castelmola, characterized by its narrow, winding streets and old-world charm.

Marvel at the sweeping views of Taormina, Mount Etna, and the Bay of Giardini Naxos. Experience the enchanting beauty of Sicily from one of its most spectacular villages.

After a short drive you’ll come to Taormina, Sicily’s world-famous resort. You’ll have some free time to relax or take an independent tour of the Greek-Roman theater (admission fee is not included).

Taormina is a hill village that has a distinct glamorous feel. Take a walking tour and see a number of ancient sites. The attractive principal thoroughfare, Corso Umberto, is reserved for pedestrians and ideal for strolling and window-shopping.

Corso Umberto is lined with bars, cafés, boutiques, and shops. Immerse yourself in the village’s atmosphere as you explore what’s on offer. Picturesque lanes above and below the Corso are interesting to explore, while if you want to stretch your legs, there are attractive walks up into the hills, and down to the sea.

The price of the excursion does not include admission fees (around EUR 10 per person per entrance).

Every effort is made to provide the tour as described, however the itinerary may change due to situations beyond the operator’s control.

What to Remember
Driver/escort information:

This excursion has been customized using a driver/escort. A driver/escort is a chauffeur that specializes in driving you around this amazing island. He is able to provide basic historical information and can show you the main highlights. He is knowledgeable and has a wide range of information.

The driver/escort will ensure that you have adequate time at all stops and will accommodate special requests when possible. He will ensure that your experience in Sicily is both memorable and enjoyable.

Your driver/escort is not a licensed tourist guide. Licensed tourist guides are the only professionals, holding a regional license, who are permitted to conduct visits and tours at sites and museums within a city. The driver/escort cannot escort you inside monuments, as this is not allowed by Italian regulations.

If you need a licensed local guide you must pay a surcharge and it will be arranged for the licensed guide to meet you directly on the spot.
