Sail along Taormina’s coastline to admire some of Sicily’s most spectacular sights including Capo Taormina and Isola Bella Island.
Taormina is one of the most important tourist destinations in Italy, and for good reasons. It has long been a popular destination for vacationers, and artists, musicians and writers of international renown, as well as Hollywood stars, all sojourned in this little town, bewitched by a unique panorama spanning the Ionian Sea and the Etna.
Founded by Sicels in the 5th century B.C.E., Taormina was conquered by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs Normans, Swabians, Angevins, Aragoneses, Habsburgs and Bourbons. This long series of dominations finally ended with the unification of Italy in 1860. Taormina’s tumultuous history left a legacy of fine architecture that merits attention. This tour offers an insight into Taormina’s outstanding historical, architectural and cultural heritage, which made it a compulsory stop on the Grand Tour.
