Conquered by the Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Byzantines and Normans, Taormina boasts a rich and fascinating history and a robust mix of styles. On this tour, enjoy a relaxed walk with your native local guide who will reveal Taormina’s culture, architecture and natural and political history while telling stories about the Sicilian people and their traditions. Discover the little streets and hidden corners that give Taormina a special charm.

Meet your licensed guide at the entrance of the Greek theatre at 5 pm, where you will begin your 1.5-hour Taormina walking tour. Head towards Palazzo Corvaja and pass by the Odeon, a small Roman theater built in the 2nd century but not re-discovered until 1892. Continue with a visit to the magnificent Greek Theatre. Your guide will explain the theater’s history as you marvel at the ancient remains.

After the theater, continue through the heart of Taormina where you’ll enjoy the essence of beautiful Old Town. This part of the city, most alive at night, will engage all of your senses. Stroll along colorful streets lined with flowers and lemon and olive groves, smell the aromas emanating from the traditional Sicilian restaurants, and listen to the music of the live performers. Stop at Belvedere Square along the main street, Corso Umberto, to enjoy the wonderful view of the picturesque coast and the skyline dominated by powerful Mount Etna.
After passing in front of the San Domenico cloister, which has been transformed into a beautiful 5-star hotel, turn your mind back to medieval times and visit important monuments and areas such as Palazzo Duchi di Santo Stefano, Porta Catania, Del Carmine Church and the Duomo Stairs.

Your tour ends in Piazza Duomo, where your guide will leave you with an anecdote about the symbol of Taormina. This is the perfect place to continue your night out in Taormina! During the tour, our guide will answer all of your questions and give you undivided support and advice to help you feel at home in Taormina.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • What is the best month to visit Italy?

    The best time to visit Italy is between the months of April and June as well as from September to October. The weather on the Italian Peninsula during these months is ideal for going out on sightseeing tours, hiking, and exploring treasures stretching from Palermo to the lagoons of Venice. Traveling to Italy during July and August is avoided by many because of the summer heat and crowds, while the period between November to March sees the fewest visitors in big cities. However, these months coincide with the prime skiing season in the Alps, while southern parts of Italy, such as Sicily, remain relatively warm during this time of year. Find more information here.

  • How do I plan a 15-day trip to Europe?

    If you are planning to visit multiple countries, you should prepare a tentative list of destinations you are interested in. If it is your first trip, stick to major cities and cultural centers for the sake of simplicity and convenience. Also, be flexible and optimize your travel time and budget. Be open to changing your itinerary depending on schedules and ticket prices.

  • Is Italy expensive to visit? How do the ATMs work? What currency do they use?

    While it is true that Italy is not an expensive destination, it is not exactly a budget destination either. Your vacation funds will go much further in Italy than they would in Scandinavia or the UK, with daily budgets of around USD150 per person sufficient for mid-range travelers who do not want to miss out on any of the country’s most important sights. Most banks have ATM machines (called bancomat) with English language options. All you need to do is look for the US or the UK flag. Plus, most machines accept both Visa and Mastercard. Please keep in mind that you will withdraw your cash in euros, with EUR1 slightly more than its USD equivalent.

  • Do I need a visa to travel to Italy?

    Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Japan can visit Italy (along with the free-movement zone of Schengen in the EU) for 90 days as tourists without requiring a visa.
