Discover the romance of Taormina on a 2-, 4-, or 5-hour walking tour, and stroll down typical medieval streets of this “Pearl of the Mediterranean.” Discover the charming scents, sounds and sights, such as the Greek-Roman Theater, and more.
What to Expect
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.
