    Informative and fun tour

    If you're looking for a way to explore Taormina that's both informative and fun, look no further than Cristina's walking tour. From the moment we met Cristina, we could tell that she was passionate about her town and eager to share its secrets with us. And secrets there were aplenty: from hidden alleyways to beautiful gardens and stunning vistas, we saw parts of Taormina that we never would have found on our own. Cristina's knowledge of the town's history and culture was impressive, and she had a knack for making even the most complex historical events come alive. We visited the famous Greek Theatre and other popular landmarks, but we also got to see some lesser-known spots that were just as beautiful. Throughout the tour, Cristina was warm, engaging, and funny, making us feel like we were exploring Taormina with an old friend. We couldn't recommend this tour more highly.
