Taormina & Castelmola Tour
Organise your Sicily tour with Discover Messina Sicily!
The first stop of our Sicily tour is Castelmola, one of the most beautiful villages of Italy. On arrival we will wind up in its panoramic square, located at 550 meters above sea level, where we will be surprised by the view, on one side, of the first greek colony in Sicily, the marvellous Giardini Naxos bay that, if today it attracts thousands of visitors thanks to its beautiful scenery, in the past tempted many invaders that were controlled by its castle and we will remember their feats; on the other, we will have a panorama on Mount Etna that, with its 3,330 feet in the air, is the highest active volcano in Europe.
We will enter in the village through its old gateway, followed by its typical alleys, to discover the history of this enchanting place, breathing the unpolluted air of a place in which time seems to have stopped in the past. So, we will reach the Cathedral, the churches of San Michele and San Giorgio and finally sip the typical almond wine in the bizarre setting of bar Turrisi.
The charm of these places inspired love stories like that one of the English novel “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” by D.H. Lawrence, set between Castelmola and Taormina.
Just in Taormina we will continue our fantastic tour, where we will be fascinated by a completely different atmosphere in respect of that one of the previous stop, and we will leave enchanted by an explosion of colours, sounds and flavours typical of Sicily.
