Taormina tour & Castelmola Sicily is a day tour from Messina port to Taormina, a best seller among our Sicily day tours. Discover with us the villages of Taormina and Castelmola and their unique and impressive views.

Castelmola Sicily is one of the most beautiful villages of Italy, at 550 meters above sea level. We will wind up in its panoramic square, where we will be surprised by the view, on one side, on Mount Etna that, with its 3330 meters, is the highest active volcano in Europe, and on the other, on the marvellous Giardini Naxos bay, the first Greek colony in Sicily. We stop also in local cafès to taste the typical sweet almond wine. Our day tour continues with a Taormina tour, to visit the most popular tourist destination of Sicily. With a Taormina walking tour  in Corso Umberto you will be fascinated by an explosion of colours, sounds and flavours typical of Sicily. Don’t miss churches, ancient buildings and exclusive boutiques, as well as great views to take fantastic photos! The aromas from Taormina’s restaurants will make an impact on you, and you will certainly enjoy a break with the flavours of our land.
The Taormina tour & Castelmola Sicily will be an unforgettable and multi-sensory experience.

Excellent Tour Guide

Enjoyed a great tour from Messina port with tour guide Ecaterina. Simply amazing how she managed to engage so many of us on the tour. She is so enthusiastic and passionate about her adopted home of Sicily. Clearly cares about her home and her clients. Infectious enthusiasm- we cannot wait to return for a longer visit next year.

Chiara was a wonderful tour guide. It was a small group in a nice comfortable van. We had time in Castelmola to wander & shop after a walking tour with much interesting history shared.
Taormina was delightful and more that 2 hrs to have a leisurely lunch after about a half hr walking tour, including the greek theater.
Both cities were amazing with beautiful views and shopping, of course.
We had lunch at a small restaurant after many choices.

Well worth the time
First, our guide was Mariarita and she was delightful and well-versed in the area. The tour locations were spectacular. To fully enjoy them, prepare for some significant walking and climbing stairs.
