This tour is one of the Taormina shore excursions available from Giardini-Naxos. This tour also  includes the ticket to visit the extraordinary Greek Theater, one of the largest in Sicily.

Firstly, our Castelmola & Taormina shore excursion starts with the visit of Castelmola, a picturesque medieval village located just above Taormina: from here you will enjoy a breathtaking outlook over the bay of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna Volcano rising in a distance.

Your discovery of the cultural heritage will continue in Taormina, where to join a guided walking tour from Porta Catania along the main street Corso Umberto, a pretty and traffic-free area where the oldest churches and monuments of the town stand, as well as the exclusive fashion shops and high-quality Sicilian restaurants.

The crown jewel of this Taormina shore excursion is the visit of the Greek-roman Amphitheatre, dating back to the 3rd century BC, an unmissable attraction for a unique experience in Sicily. Nowadays this incredible frame is the scene of many arts and cultural events and it has been the location of the G7 Summit in May 2017.
