Perched high on Mt. Tauro, medieval Taormina offers you the most beautiful views in the world and many opportunities to discover its history within its many cobbled streets. Start your hour journey to Taormina while traveling through Messina. Upon arrival in Taormina, spend some free time exploring the endless winding medieval streets and tiny passages, each holding its own secret. Enjoy the cafes, ice cream parlors and numerous quaint shops along Corso Umberto, Taormina pedestrian main street. Maybe independently visit the Palazzo Corvaja with its classical double windows, or the impressive Greek Theatre built by the Greeks in the 3rd century B.C., and later restructured by the Romans.
This is not a guided tour, you will have about four hours of free time at your disposal for the visit of Taormina. There is a lot of walking on uneven ground and uphill roads. Comfortable shoes recommended.
