Taormina & Castelmola

Day trip to discover the ancient Taurominum and the “almond wine” of Castelmola

  • Corso Umberto - Taormina
  • View from Castelmola
  • Castelmola

Time about 4-5 hours

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.

We continue the exploration to Castelmola, this village occupying a strategic position up behind Taormina, centres around the picturesque little Piazzetta del Duomo.
In one of the bars in the main square we will have the chance to taste the famous “almond wine”.

Day Trips

Short Tours from and back cruise ships docked at Messina Harbor, Catania Harbor, Giardini Naxos / Taormina Harbor and Risposto Harbor. The tours I offer are a great alternative to group excursions, as you would be able to visit several places at a slower pace. My tours offer more freedom in stopping here and there as desired, on the contrary of Bus Tours. A great way of visiting the area at a great cost.
