Taormina & Castelmola with lunch
Excellent tour. Our guide Chiara was wonderful. She had a great knowledge of the history of the area.
Lunch was four courses with wine at this delightful restaurant in Taormina. Definitely recommend.

Amazing trip!
We enjoyed very much of this beautiful trip to Taormina and Castelmola, and the included lunch in
this tour was absolutely fabulous. We thought the appetizer was the main course, and it surprised us with a tasty main course and the ice cream for desert.
We love our two lovely lady tour guides, they are very good
