This itinerary starts from one of the town’s two main gates, Porta Catania or Porta Messina, depending on whether or not you have a chauffeur. Walking along Corso Umberto, we stop to admire Palazzi with their original blend of Arabic, Gothic and Spanish architectural styles. Other stops include Piazza Duomo with its emblematic fountain and its 13th century basilica, as well as Piazza IX Aprile, which offers a breathtaking view on the bay of Naxos. This is also a good place to indulge in an almond granita (or any other typical flavours). We also visit the remains of the Odeon and a Greek gymnasium (wrongly named Naumachias) and the impressive theatre, with its magnificent view on the Ionian Sea and the often snow-capped Etna in the background. The tour usually includes a stroll in Taormina’s charming and peaceful Public Garden, a rather frivolous and welcome addition designed by an eccentric Englishwoman, Mrs. Trevelyan.

Tour duration: ca. 3.5h
