Departure & Return
What To Expect
From that look back in time, you’ll continue in the present-day life of Taormina’s Old Town. Immerse yourself in Old Town’s serene energy, where you can hear live musicians amid the cafe chatter and smell traditional dishes being prepared in cafes and restaurants. See the beautiful San Domenico cloister, now a luxury 5-star hotel. Stop for a breathtaking view of the infamous volcano, Mt. Etna, looming over the sea.
Hear about the history of Taormina from your guide, including the array of conquering armies that inevitably shaped the culture, cuisine, and architecture of Sicily. Learn about the influence of the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Byzantines, and Normans on this little town.
See such attractions as the Palazzo Duchi di Santo Stefano, Porta Catania-Chiesa del Carmine, and the Duomo Stairs before your tour concludes in Piazza Duomo. Here, your guide leaves you with a parting story about the city’s symbol, and lets you continue your evening in Taormina at your leisure.
