Taormina perches on a terrace overlooking the sea and epitomizes the legendary beauty of Sicily. A one-hour drive brings you to the outskirts of this picturesque site which was founded in the 3rd century B.C. Although almost completely renovated by the Romans, it now reflects a medieval character
that is truly captivating. After arriving near Taormina’s center, your guide will accompany you on a walking tour
along cobblestone streets to Palazzo Corvaja
, a 15th century building whose arched windows and doorways reflect its strong Arabic influence. Next, you will stroll to the 3rd century Greco-Roman Theater
, spectacularly situated overlooking Mount Etna and Naxos Bay. Renowned for its expansive size and unique acoustic qualities, it is still used for open-air concerts. After free time to stroll or shop along the famous Corso Umberto, you will rejoin the coach for the 60-minute journey back to the yacht.
Please note: Buses are not permitted to enter the town of Taormina. Guests will get to the city center from the parking lot by lifts. Keep in mind that Taormina can be very crowded.
