Important remarks

  • AS REGARDS THE VISIT TO TAORMINA, IT IS A WALKING TOUR: Taormina is a hill-village with a glossy sheen of glamour. A drink at the tables of Caffè Wunderbar (or similar) in Piazza IX Aprile may set you back a few euros, but you'll be basking where Tennessee Williams and Elizabeth Taylor basked before you.As well as the famed Greek-Roman Theatre (Admission Fee: not included), there are several minor sites to be discovered around Taormina. The attractive principal thoroughfare, Corso Umberto is pedestrian and ideal for strolling and window-shopping. Picturesque lanes above and below the Corso are interesting to explore, while if you want to stretch your legs further there are attractive walks up into the hills, or down to the sea. Given its compact size, Taormina has a huge range of bars, cafes and restaurants where you can while away pleasant hours while admiring the views. Taormina has two important gates: Porta Messina (Messina Gate) & Porta Catania (Catania Gate). Between the two gates there is an important street under the name of CORSO UMBERTO STREET. The Corso Umberto Street is the core of the town rich of bar, shops, pottery and more. Waling in this street indulge you in the Taormina atmosphere. The two gates are far away each other less than one mile (approx. 700 meters). USUALLY the driver escort stopped people in a gate, and meet them again in the opposite gate giving you the chance to be by yourself. Meeting point locations will be handled on the spot in accordance with your driver escort.
