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.

Salvo is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable of the history of Taormina. We enjoyed the tour of the Greek theatre, the walk through the 3 gates of the historic city and several stunning lookouts of the surrounding area and the sea, we would highly recommend this guide and the tour.

Our guide Chairo was an amazing guide who provided a first class tour. Communication prior was great. Chairo was very knowledgeable and was able to provide excellent history, local information as well as interested facts about Sicily and beautiful taormina. So good, in fact, that we didn't realise she had run well over her 2 hour booking. Much appreciated. I would highly recommend.

Great visit of nearly 4 hours of Taormina with our guide Chiara who speaks very good French! Very erudite, she taught us a lot of things about the history of the city but also about anecdotes which came to spice up the visit! The visit was embellished with many little touches like a local granita coffee or the best canollo in town! Very highly recommended
