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.
