  • Explore the medieval monuments along the elegant Corso Umberto I, the main street
  • Learn all about the historical centre of the hamlet with your local guide

Taormina is the most aristocratic and celebrated gem of Sicily. It has always seduced nobles, intellectuals, photographers, writers and travellers who have thronged to it since the XIXth century. The town is beautifully located on a rocky terrace that is the promontory of Mount Tauro- suspended two hundred meters above the Ionian Sea, facing the Calabria coast, and looking up to the biggest active volcano in Europe, the Etna.
On this tour, we will walk along the elegant Corso Umberto I, the main street that stretches from Porta Catania to Porta Messina, which was one of the most important old roman roads in Sicily that joined Messina to Catania. At the Main Square, we will see prominent historical monuments such as the Cathedral, the Town Hall and a baroque-style fountain that sports the town's symbol. Browse through pottery shops and local patisseries brimming with local delicacies, and see many other interesting points on our walk, such as the town's narrowest street and the ancient theatre that hosts festivals and concerts, even today.

So come, join me, and we will explore the medieval landscape of Taormina to learn about the wealth of cultural and artistic heritage that this hamlet offers.

    Cristina is knowledgeable, and good with the gimbal. She is also patient and seems to know what to say and when to say. We enjoyed the tour and hope to do another one with her maybe later part of this year.
