Join your driver by Meet and Greet service just outside the port entrance, get comfortable, and it's off! Following the coastal road dotted with beautiful villas, flowering gardens, and picturesque villages you soon arrive at the historical artist town of Savoca.
Visit Bar Vitelli, housing an interesting assortment of local artisan's tools, and a collection of photographs taken on location during the filming of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather II. Saunter the quaint villages' main street past Santa Lucia and San Michele churches, and take in the scenic views over the valley.
The tour continues to a charming little village overlooking the Arab-Norman castle of Capo Sant'Alessio. See familiar locations filmed for Sophia Coppola's Godfather III, and walk from the main square along a lane meeting the circular steps that ascend to the Gothic-Catalan portal of the Church of San Agostino.
The last leg of the excursion brings you to the ancient town of Taormina. The popular Sicilian resort nestled in the coastal hillside offers you the opportunity to explore the narrow lanes on your own, visit the Greco-Roman theatre ruins, or simply relax, and enjoy the sights on the backdrop of the Ionian Sea.

Pick-up will be arranged for 30 minutes after the estimated cruise docking time. Drop-off to the port will be set for 1 hour before the cruise departure time. The Port Authority in Messina has limited access to the Port area, so our staff will be pleased to meet and greet you outside the docking pier holding a sign with your full name.
We customized this excursion using a Driver-Escort. A Driver-Escort is a chauffeur specialized to drive you around our amazing island. He is able to provide basic historical information, he can show you the main highlights, and is very knowledgeable with a broad range of information. Our Driver-Escort will take care to give adequate time at all stops and to accommodate special requests when possible, and will assure that your experience in Sicily will be both memorable and enjoyable.
The Driver Escort is not a Licensed Tourist Guide (Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals - with a Regional license - permitted to conduct visits and tours in all sites and museums within a city) and he cannot accompany you inside the monuments because this is not allowed by Italian Rules. In you would like a Licensed Local Guide you must pay a surcharge and we will arrange for a Licensed Guide to meet you directly on the spot.
