Free time for a “granita” in the Bar Vitelli then we walk to the Chiesa Madrewhere the scene of the wedding between Apollonia and Michael was shot with its fine 16C portal surmonted by a beautifully carved oculus and the coat of arms of Savoca, bearing the eldeberry branch from which the name of the town is supposed to derive.
The tour will continue to Taormina the ancient Taurominum, is a spot of infinite loveliness, the land of Dolce far niente – of sweet do nothing.
The town lies in an elevated position of amazing, almost unique beauty, affording magnificent views combining sea and sky of a marvelous blue, miles of a curving coastline and picturesque mountain scenery, while the majestic pyramid of Mt. Etna on one side constututes a scene of indescribable beauty.
We will visit together the Piazza Belvedere (Lookout square) where you will have a breathtaking view of Isolabella (Beautiful island) and the Messina coast line.
Upon arrival in Taormina you will have your free time to admire the cathedral
The imposing medieval building was erected in the thirteenth century on the ruins of a church dedicated to St. Nicholas of Bari, the Greek Theatre from the 2nd century A.D. – Palazzo Corvaja and Corso Umberto where you can do excellent shopping.
