Lace up your comfortable shoes for a walking tour of two breathtaking cities. First you'll visit the stunning village of Taormina, considered to be one of Sicily’s most beautiful resorts. Founded by the Greeks in the 4th century B.C., this village is home to the centuries-old Palazzo Corvaja, a medieval palace. Another famous landmark is the Greco Roman Theater. Carved out of the hillside in the 3rd century B.C., this theater boasts panoramic views of the Sicilian coastline, the mountains of southern Calabria and the volcano Mount Etna. Enjoy shopping along Corso Umberto, the main street of the city, before being whisked away to the village of Castelmola for lunch and a walking tour along its cobblestone streets. Enjoy the stunning views from the Piazzetta del Duomo square, in the heart of the city and one of the most visited places in Europe. At the end of the day, you’ll reboard your motor coach and return to your ship.
- In case of long lines or issues with using the elevators to reach the city gates, guests may be required to climb approx. 140 steps with handrails.
