Full description
The tour starts in Taormina, known as "the Pearl of the Ionian sea", which is one of the first Greek colony on the east coast of Sicily. The beautiful centre is characterized by both Baroque and Medieval style, which make it a unique and rare town. By walking through the main street, Corso Umberto, you will grasp the true essence of this old town : the ancient roman Naumachia, the baroque and medieval styles of Piazza Duomo, Palazzo Corvaja and Piazza IX Aprile. Along the path , there is The Ancient Greek Theatre which is possibile to visit on your own and get amazed by its impressive view : Etna and the ionian coast. The next step is Castelmola : a medieval village situated above Taormina. This village is recognized as part of the Italian cultural heritage where its medieval atmosphere will bring you back to the past. Walking along the alleys there is a small road climbs up to the remains of the Castle of Mola, which was once a fortress that, from the top of its elevation, controlled a vast territory from enemy raids. Descending from the ruins of the castle, along the way, there are various churches among which the Cathedral dedicated to San Nicola di Bari and the church of San Giorgio which is also the protector of the town stand out. In the main square of this lovely village, there is the chance to enjoy the fantastic sea-view tasting the typical almond liquor at the excentric "Bar Turrisi".
