Tour Taormina & Greek Theatre
7 Hours / Tour language:
Visit Castelmola and Taormina with its Greek Theatre, enjoy the view on the Etna and on the Ionian coast, an itinerary through history, art and culture.
After pickup from Messina cruise port or the nearby tourist information point, travel by air-conditioned coach to Castelmola, a picturesque village situated just above Taormina. Hop out here to enjoy the beautiful setting and wonderful outlook over the magnificent bay of Giardini-Naxos and Mt Etna rising in the distance.
Continue into Taormina and see the 19th-century Porta Messina gateway before a guided walk along the Corso Umberto, once part of the ancient Roman street of Via Valeria. Stroll along this pretty, traffic-free street and enjoy a guided look at the town’s oldest churches and monuments, as well the most exclusive shops and restaurants. Taste some typical Sicilian specialities and sweets at pastry and ice cream shops, and visit Taormina’s Greco-Roman theater, the second-largest of its kind in Sicily, built by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC.
On return to Messina, stop to explore the highlights of this historical port. Delve into the heart of the old city, and visit Cathedral Square (Duomo) to see Messina Cathedral, home to the world’s biggest astronomical clock. View the Church of the Catalans, an extraordinary example of 12th- and 13th-century Arab-Norman art, and visit the panoramic terrace between the Shrine of Christ the King and the Sanctuary of Montalto for spectacular views over the Strait of Messina.
