Are you looking for boat trips from Catania? This boat trip is among our Sicily shore excursions from Catania, available if you are an independent traveller or a cruise ship passenger. This boat trip from Catania is the perfect combination to enjoy nature and culture, in the most popular landmark of Sicily: Taormina! From Catania we will reach by bus the tiny port of the Bay of Naxos, and here our local and friendly tour guide will take you on a 2-hour Isola Bella boat tour, facing the natural rocky coastline of Taormina dominated by the view of Mt. Etna. A short stop will let you dive into the fresh blue Ionian Sea. Back onshore, the tour will continue with an interesting walking tour in Corso Umberto, in the historical city center of Taormina: here you can experience a dreamy atmosphere among tiny streets, local ceramics and handicraft shops, exclusive fashion stores and jewelries, and Sicilian restaurants to appreciate the local cookery. Enjoy the monumental heritage of Taormina and get fascinated by the attractive views from the panoramic balcony in Belvedere Square.

Isola Bella

After a journey of about one hour by van, you will reach the first destination of this day-trip, which is the port of Giardini Naxos, just underneath the town of Taormina. Here you will embark on a motorboat that will take you to the discovery of the coastline of Taormina and its natural beauty, made by crystal water, of the Blue Grotto and of the amazing Isola Bella, a rocky islet connected with the beach by a tiny sand line. After a refreshing swim and a fruit tasting you will be back at the port of Giardini Naxos and you will leave to Taormina.

Taormina

After the boat trip, in less than 10 minutes you will arrive to the beautiful Taormina, where you will enjoy your free time walking along Corso Umberto or “eating local” at one of the many typical and cozy restaurants of the pedestrian area. Your tour guide will be happy to suggest you the best spots where to try the famous Sicilian food as arancino, cannolo and a fresh granita, or the most interesting historical attractions of Taormina, such as the Greek-Roman Theatre, the ancient churches, the panoramic point or the peaceful public garden.

Return to Catania Cruise Port

The boat trips from Catania will end to the starting point. We share a goodbye, hoping to meet our guests back in Sicily soon.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however.

Great trip combining all the great things to do out of Catania, Sicily

We were a group of 8 cruisers who wanted to see Taormina, but wanted something else to add to the trip. I saw this tour and booked it. Our guide, Mariarita was wonderful. She was right on time and whisked us off the to the BEST bus we ever had for a group of 8…huge, wonderful A/C, wi-fi! Our feet were a bit tired from other ports, so the thought of a two-plus hour boat ride with options for swimming seemed great. The boat was very nice and they served us delicious fresh fruit and local wine. After we left the boat, we went to Taormina. Those who wanted a tour with our guide did so, and others just met her at a designated return spot. We asked her if we could also see Castlemola if we spent a little less time at other sites. She was very accomodating and even scheduled a wine tasting for us there on the spur of the moment. Great guide, wonderful price
