This Messina & Taormina trip  is one of our Taormina shore excursions: if you are cruise ship passengers or autonomous travellers staying in Taormina area, then you can enjoy the opportunity to visit both the famous Taormina & the less known city of Messina.

In Messina we will visit the attractions of the historical city center with its famous mechanical Bell Tower. Furthermore we will move to the suggestive location of Capo Peloro, the nearest strip of land of Sicily island to the mainland, a magical place where to admire the mythical waters of the Strait of Messina.

Going to the Eastern coast of Sicily, Taormina is our second destination, where with an enchanting walk on Corso Umberto you will be surrounded by the typical Sicilian atmosphere. Spectacular visions will unfold in our eyes, immersed in a unique atmosphere where the modernity of the high fashion boutiques, restaurants and shops are in perfect union with the antiquity of the palaces and monuments. Suggestive are the squares overlooking by breathtaking views, with Mt Etna and the coast of Giardini Naxos in plain sight.

Also tasting an authentic Sicilian Cannoli or a delicious Arancino will be a worth living experience.
