Castelmola and Taormina with Theatre

The excitement starts the moment you step onto an air-conditioned, comfortable coach for a relaxing ride out to Castelmola complete with stunning views.

Once in Castelmola the majestic panorama continues as you look out over the beautiful bay of Giardini-Naxos and see Mount Etna ever-present in the distance. See the 19th century Porta Messina gateway then walk along the ancient Roman street Via Valeria which, today, makes up part of the famed Corso Umberto.

It is here that you will see ancient and modern worlds collide as you meander past historic monuments, antique churches, boutique shops and exclusive restaurants. Pop into one of the pastry and ice cream shops for a taste of typical Sicilian sweets then make your way to down the hill to Taormina with its impressive Greco-Roman theater, entrance is included.

Once back in Messina, head to the heart of the old city to see Messina Cathedral that contains the world's largest astronomical clock in its bell tower. In Cathedral Square you will also find the Church of the Catalans with its 12th and 13th century Arab-Norman art. While here, be sure to visit the terrace between the Shrine of Christ the King and the Sanctuary of Montalto for unforgettable panoramic views of the Strait of Messina.

Spend the day in the remarkable villages of Castelmola, Taormina and Messina by signing up for this fun full-day tour today.
