What to Expect
Spend a full-day excursion exploring the Italian cities of Taormina and Castelmola. Take in the Sicilian ambiance as you learn the history of these towns and visit their main streets and sites.

After you are greeted at the port in Taormina, you will drive to Castelmola; warm friendly people and spectacular panoramas characterize this village. Castelmola offers a balcony view over Taormina and the bay of Giardini Naxos and is framed by the mysterious active volcano, Mount Etna. Its narrow winding streets and old world charm make Castelmola a destination for anyone wishing to experience the enchanting beauty of Sicily from one of its most spectacular villages.

Enjoy a refreshing glass of almond wine at local bar and be delighted by its decor and friendly staff. Then a short drive takes you to Taormina, the world-famous resort of Sicily. Taormina is a hill-village with a glossy sheen of glamour, known also for its Greek-Roman Theater. Walk down the attractive principal thoroughfare, Corso Umberto, ideal for strolling and window-shopping. Picturesque lanes above and below the Corso are interesting to explore, and if you want to stretch your legs further there are walks up into the hills, or down to the sea. Given its compact size, Taormina has a huge range of bars, cafes, and restaurants where you can while away the hours while admiring the views. Taormina has two important gates: Porta Messina (Messina Gate) & Porta Catania (Catania Gate). Visiting these gates is just one of the many activities you can do while soaking up the local atmosphere, before you are returned to the port.

What to Remember
Driver-Escort Information:
We customized this excursion using a driver-escort. A driver-escort is a chauffeur who will drive you around our amazing island. He is knowledgeable, able to provide basic historical information, and he can show you the main highlights.

Our driver-escort will take care to give adequate time at all stops and to accommodate special requests when possible. He 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). The driver-escort cannot escort you inside the monuments because this is not allowed by Italian law. In the case you need a licensed local guide, you must pay a surcharge and we will arrange for one to meet you directly on the spot.
