Full description
Travel from Tropea to Taormina in Sicily and explore the beautiful town on a day trip. The journey alone will enchant you as you pass by the Tyrrhenian cliffs overlooking the Aeolian Islands to reach the port of Villa San Giovanni. Continue on by ferry across the Strada di Messine. During the crossing you can enjoy an espresso on the deck and the panoramic views of Mount Etna and Messina. Taormina is known for its mild climate, lush vegetation, magnificent palaces, dreamy streets, elegant squares, and panoramic views at 200 meters above sea level at the foot of the Monte Tauro Mountains. You will be accompanied to Porta di Taormina, the entrance to the city, from where you can explore on your own. Stroll past chic boutiques and visit the Greco-Roman amphitheater, where you'll have a fantastic view of Mount Etna. Try Sicilian specialties, such as fresh arancini (rice balls filled with vegetables and ground meat) or granita (a sorbet-like desert). Let yourself be tempted to a shopping spree or just relax at the Piazza.

Long drive but with lots of information about the area which was very good and saved the time. What I liked most about Taormina was the view of Mount Etna. The town is beautifully laid out with a long main street and a few side streets. Otherwise just the usual shops, so souvenir shops, bars, restaurants, etc. However, there are also beautiful vantage points.

Hotel pickup was not possible. This means additional taxi costs of €25 for the second excursion booked via GyG. Other guests were picked up and dropped off from their hotels, adding a good hour to the travel time. Next time will only book with organizers who guarantee a hotel pick-up.

Nice trip

Very well organized excursion. German speaking travel companion. Attention, really only in German. A lot was reported about the region during the bus ride. There is no guided tour or similar in Taormina itself. Taormina is a very pretty town. The 3 to 4 hours you can spend there are actually almost too short. But if you keep an eye on the time, you can do a lot.
