Taormina, perched 700 feet above the Bay of Naxos, was a famed resort even in Roman times. The poor Romans had to climb the hill, but you can take the elevator from your motor coach to the city gates, where your walking tour begins.
Your guide will introduce you to Taormina's delights including the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele and the bustling main street, lined with old mansions.
The highlight will be the Greco-Roman theater, built in the 3rd-century BC and still used for open-air concerts today. This stunning ancient theater features superb acoustics and offers glorious views of Mt Etna and the bay.
Your visit includes approximately 30 minutes of free time to browse among the boutiques and cafés along Taormina's stylish Corso Umberto. Returning to the coach, even if elevators are available, you may be required to use a flight of about 140 steps.
