The Alcantara tour & Taormina is one of our Sicily day tours from Messina port that will make you explore the city of Taormina and one of the most spectacular natural scenery of the island: the Alcantara Gorge!

We are going to start our day tour from Messina Sicily Cruise Port (if you are not a cruise guest the departure will be your hotel/accommodation or our office). We are going to have a panoramic tour of the city of Messina seeing the main monuments. Then, during our journey to Alcantara Sicily, you will have the possibility to listen to the history of our island and to taste one of the typical products of Sicily: the Sicilian almond cookies. Driving uphill until 50 meters of altitude, we will find the Botanic Park of the Alcantara Gorges, where you will enjoy your Alcantara tour walking in the cold water of this volcanic canyon, whose walls can reach a height of 50 mt. Our second destination will be Taormina, the capital city of tourism in Sicily, and with a guided Taormina tour you will discover its main street.

Fantastic
Sarah was my tour guide. She came with George the photographer. They were punctual, polite and accommodating. Alcantara was beautiful scenery. They even took us to pharmacy after the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Sarah and George
