Taormina & Syracuse

Nowhere is the beauty of Sicily more apparent than in the hill-top town of Taormina.

This walking tour around the history and drama of Taormina proceeds past the Cathedral and the 15th-century Palazzo Corvaja with its black and white lava decoration. Visit inside the Greek theatre, originally built by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC and rebuilt by the Romans in the 2nd century AD. The site offers amazing views of the sea and Mount Etna.

Our tour ends with a stroll along the pedestrian Corso Umberto, the small lanes and twisting viuzze where you can shop for colorful ceramics, seek out award winning wines and enjoy lunch in one of Taormina’s most exclusive gourmet restaurants.  In the afternoon visit the mythical Syracuse, a UNESCO Heritage Site, described by Cicero as ‘the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of all’. Explore centuries-old Greek and Roman ruins, the Temple of Athena and, stroll the medieval lanes of Ortygia.
