"I go on liking it here. I have been putting up apricot and fig preserves; an unmanly activity, I suppose, but very relaxing and the reward is delicious. Today is St. Giovanni...so we are preparing a big feast, and the people working in the wheatfield below are coming up with an accordion and we are going to have a dance." − A letter from Truman Capote written during his time in Taormina, June 1950

Taormina Tour

Situated on the warm waters of the Ionian Sea on the East Coast of the island, Taormina is laden with arresting scenery, including unrivaled views of Mt. Etna. Events abound throughout the year: summer brings the Greek Theatre's Art Festival, early March welcomes a magnificent Carnavale celebration and September hosts the festive Madonna della Rocca. Our tour guide will point out the geographical significance of Taormina including its rocky cliffs, Saracen Castle and breath-taking Greek Theatre. Other highlights include: Antiquarium, The Church of St. Catherine, the Odeum, Palazzo Corvaja, Roman Baths, Naumachie and the Clocktower.

Taormina Tour
Pitched on a hill of the Monte Tauro and overlooking 100 miles of Mediterranean Sea, Taormina is one of Sicily's most spectacular destinations. Greek and Roman architecture and history are plentiful throughout the seaside town. A visit to the world-renown Greek Roman Theatre, the second largest classical theatre in all of Sicily, is an unforgettable experience. Built in Greek times, and later enlarged and almost entirely rebuilt by the Romans in the second century AD, our tour guide will share its powerful history. We will take the opportunity to walk on Corso Umberto I, a legendary road was once a main thoroughfare linking the cities of Messina and Catania. We will visit the archeological museum, Antiquarium, The Church of St. Catherine, and the smaller Roman theatre the Odeum. We'll get an upclose look at the Palazzo Corvaja, once the home of Sicilian Parliament. Also included in the tour are the Clocktower in the center of town, the site of the ancient Roman Baths which is now a repository for hundreds of archaeological treasures and the striking Naumachie wall which is 130 metres long. Presto Tours invites you to learn the intimate history, art and culture of Taormina.
