Full description
Experience the magic of the Sicilian resort of Taormina, and discover why it is called the “Pearl of the Mediterranean” on a walking tour tailored just for you.

Avoiding the crowds as much as possible, the half-day tour typically starts at Catania Gate, the main entrance to Corso Umberto, an elegant shopping street of boutique stores and chic restaurants. Continue to the 13th-century cathedral on Piazza del Duomo, and wander into the narrow streets of the Jewish Ghetto.

Panoramic views are offered from IX April Square and the Clock Tower, while other enchanting sights include the 10th-century Palazzo Corvaja and the façade of the San Domenico cloister, now a beautiful 5-star hotel. Go to the Greek-Roman Theater for sweeping vistas of the Bay of Naxos and Mount Etna. The view of Monte Tauro and Castelmola add to the charm.

You will be following in the footsteps of Wagner, Oscar Wilde, Cary Grant, Ingmar Bergmann, and many more celebrities that fell in love with Taormina to help put it on the map.

Great fun!

This tour was short but very well organised. The tour contacted me by email straightaway before I left the country leaving the phone number and name of the guide and meet up point. However I did not get the dedicated guide but I had someone who was really good. He was in a good mood, upbeat and positive. We had a great laugh while touring around and he was very informative. He knows a lot of history of taormina and I learnt alot of the war etc.

Super visite de près de 4h de Taormina avec notre guide Chiara qui parle très bien français ! Très érudite elle nous a appris plein de choses sur l’histoire de la ville mais aussi sur des anecdotes qui sont venues pimenter la visite ! La visite a été agrémentée de nombreuses petites attentions comme un café granita local ou le meilleur canollo de la ville ! Très fortement recommandé
