    What to Expect
    The tour begins at the pier and continues with a transfer to Taormina where you can visit the Greek theater, Palazzo Corvaja, and Cathedral. You can admire an amazing view of Mount Etna and bay of Giardini Naxos. You will have three hours to visit the town by yourself.

    You will have a walk along Corso Umberto (the ancient Roman street Valeria). You will be enchanted by Taormina, the charming pearl of the Mediterranean which is always able to seduce even the most inattentive visitor.

    At an established time, there will be a pick up and transfer to Castelmola. Castelmola is a little nice town just above Taormina. Discover this little town that is famous for the pottery and almond wine. Also here you can enjoy a beautiful landscape, with a wonderful overlook of the Mount Etna (more than 3,330 mt, the highest volcano in Europe), and the magnificent bay of Giardini - Naxos.

    At the end of the day, you will be transferred back to Messina. There will be a short visit of the historic centre of the city: the square of the cathedral with the biggest astronomical clock in the world and the panoramic terrace between the Shrine of Christ the King and the Sanctuary of Montalto where you can admire the Strait of Messina. After this, back to the port in time for the cruise-ship departure.
