Enjoy a guided walk through the city known as the essence of Sicily, Taormina. Your tour begins with a pleasant drive to the city. Built in the 3rd century B.C. by the Greeks, it was later completely renovated by the Romans. Taormina is perched on a terrace overlooking the sea and boasts a medieval character that will delight you. Your guide will take you through Taormina's highlights during a guided walk. This includes the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele and the bustling main street of Corso Umberto, which is lined with ancient mansions, enchanting architecture and balconies lined with flowers. While strolling Corso Umberto, you will see the Porta Catania, Porta del Centro, the Clock Tower and the Porta Messina. Then take advantage of a scenic photo opportunity with the sweeping views over the Gulf of Taormina from the Piazza IX April terrace. At the 15th-century Palazzo Corvaja, you will see an excellent example of the characteristic black and white lava and pumice work of Taormina architecture, and an ornately painted, original Sicilian carretta (carriage) which is located within the inner courtyard. Finally, follow your guide up to the narrow street that leads to Taormina's impressive Greco-Roman theatre, which dates back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC, and still hosts performances today. The theatre's dramatic location is nothing short of breathtaking, with an incredible view of the Bay of Naxos with Mount Etna volcano in the distance.
