What a joy to drive along the scenic winding road to Taormina, a town graced with an extraordinary natural setting and a delightful medieval character. Enjoy a guided walking tour along Taormina's narrow streets past the famous Palazzo Corvaja, a beautifully ornate building whose construction began in the 15th century. A much older architectural wonder, the Greek Theater, dates back to the 3rd century B.C., a reminder of just how long Taormina has been a vibrant city. The theater was rebuilt by the Romans in the 2nd century A.D. and is still used for summer performances. Many people consider the view from the theater's highpoint to be one of the most breathtaking in all of Italy, especially the sweeping panorama of Mount Etna. A leisurely stroll along Corso Umberto, the town's main street, takes you past many fine, old houses and picture-perfect churches. Plant-lovers will particularly enjoy the Giardini Pubblici, The Public Gardens, with its crisscrossing cobbled paths through the lush exotic flora.

Please note: Extensive walking is required in Taormina, including uphill climbs, steps and uneven terrain in the Greek Theater. This tour is not recommended for wheelchair guests or guests with mobility concerns.
