This Taormina food tour & Castelmola Sicily is one of our day trips from Messina port. The tour starts with the visit of Castelmola Sicily, a picturesque village just above Taormina. Here you can enjoy a beautiful landscape, with a wonderful terrace overlooking Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, and the magnificent bay of Giardini Naxos, the first Greek colony in Sicily.
After a stroll in the medieval village of Castelmola Sicily, we will get to the beautiful Taormina. Here with a Taormina excursion we will go along Corso Umberto, the ancient Roman Street Valeria. You can enjoy typical things to do in Taormina: a visit through the historic center with a tour guide or on your own, a visit to the Greek-roman theatre (the ancient theatre of Taormina, optional), the old churches and monuments, the most exclusive shops, and then a gourmet visit to the restaurants, the pastries and ice cream shops to taste local products and treats. The Taormina excursion also includes the lunch at the restaurant, to try the specialities of the Sicilian cooking. You will be enchanted by Taormina, the charming Pearl of the Mediterranean, which is always able to seduce even the most distracted visitor.

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
