(Departure at 09:00 – Return at 14:00)
Taormina is famous for its beaches and its “boutique” shops in Corso Umberto, an ideal place for shopping. The tour begins by visiting the wonderful Greek-Roman Theater, also called the Teatro Antico, where operas and concerts still take place today, especially during the spring-summer time.
The elegant Piazza IX Aprile is famous for its view of the Gulf of Giardini Naxos, in this square, there are many outdoor cafès, and many artists engaged in the art of painting. In this square, you can also visit the clock tower and the St. Joseph’s church, and St. Agostino’s Church. The final stage, which cannot be missed, is a shortstop on Isola Bella. A natural oasis, a wonder for all tourists.
Taormina + Castelmola + Giardini Naxos
(Departure at 09:00 – Return at 16:00)
The trip continues with a stop in Castelmola, which is part of the circuit of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
The last part of our trip ends with a visit to Giardini Naxos, whose name was taken from the island of Naxos, in the Aegean Sea. The city retains evidence of its past in the Archaeological Park, where we find the archaic town, the southern wall, and some kilns used for firing clay. In the museum, we find artifacts and collections dating back to the ancient Greek colony such as vases, coins, and furnishings, as well as submarine finds.
Taormina + Savoca
(Departure at 09:00 – Return at 18:00)
Savoca, listed among the most beautiful villages in Italy since 2008, is perched on a rocky hill that overlooks the Ionian coast. A town with medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque influences in its territory.
The characteristic places to visit are the Cathedral dedicated to the Madonna Assunta, dating back to the Norman period; the St. Michael’s Church (also known as the Castle Church), rich of artworks, the St. Nicolò’s Church (also known as the Church of S. Lucia), with the appearance of a fortress.
Curiosity: Savoca achieved considerable notoriety in 1971 thanks to Francis Ford Coppola’s movie “The Godfather – Part 1” where the character played by Al Pacino meets the father of the future bride in the small Bar Vitelli.
