Explore the landscape of Sicily on a 7-hour scenic tour of Taormina and Castelmola, driving the beautiful coastline from Naxos. Admire breathtaking views of the Ionian coast, wander narrow medieval alleys, and walk in the footsteps of Oscar Wilde.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day scenic tour of the east coast of Sicily with pick-up and drop offs from the harbor towns of Naxos, Messina and Catania.
Traveling by air conditioned vehicle, your first stop will be the picturesque medieval village of Castelmola, following a panoramic road from Naxos that towers 1,740 feet (530 meters) above sea level. The journey itself is an adventure, but the destination is a dream. Enjoy panoramic sea views, and take a leisurely walk along the narrow streets and alleys.
Then, head down to Taormina, often referred to as the "Pearl of Sicily." Admire historic landmarks, such as fragments of the old town walls and the Porta Messina entrance, as well as the 10th-century Palace of Corvaja.
Enjoy the bohemian atmosphere reflected in quaint cafés, restaurants, and boutique stores along the Corso Umberto, where you will get plenty of time to explore on your own. And visit the ruins of the Teatro Greco, occupying a lofty location high on a hill that rewards with yet more breathtaking views.
