From Tropea: Full-Day Tour to Taormina in Sicily

1. From Tropea: Full-Day Tour to Taormina in Sicily

Travel from Tropea to Taormina in Sicily and explore the beautiful town on a day trip. The journey alone will enchant you as you pass by the Tyrrhenian cliffs overlooking the Aeolian Islands to reach the port of Villa San Giovanni. Continue on by ferry across the Strada di Messine. During the crossing you can enjoy an espresso on the deck and the panoramic views of Mount Etna and Messina. Taormina is known for its mild climate, lush vegetation, magnificent palaces, dreamy streets, elegant squares, and panoramic views at 200 meters above sea level at the foot of the Monte Tauro Mountains. You will be accompanied to Porta di Taormina, the entrance to the city, from where you can explore on your own. Stroll past chic boutiques and visit the Greco-Roman amphitheater, where you'll have a fantastic view of Mount Etna. Try Sicilian specialties, such as fresh arancini (rice balls filled with vegetables and ground meat) or granita (a sorbet-like desert). Let yourself be tempted to a shopping spree or just relax at the Piazza.

Very nice and interesting day tour.

Our collection went without a hitch. The bus was clean and our driver was very friendly. Our travel companion (Angela) turned out to be a great and talented entertainer with an immense knowledge of the past and present of Calabria and its inhabitants. It also gave us a humorous insight into people's daily lives. The journey over land and by ferry was therefore very varied and never boring! The city of Taormina showed itself at its best with brilliant sunshine. Of course it is a tourist magnet and always full, but that doesn't detract from your visit. In my opinion, the old amphitheater with an impressive view over the coast and on the other side of Mount Etna is particularly worth seeing. The restaurant "Bella Blu" recommended by our company and used by ourselves also has a great panoramic view over the coast, oh and the food is also good and came very quickly! So very recommendable tour!

in tropea 99% of tourists are german. so the tour is in german. You have to know that. the guides were excellent and give us the main information in italian. Before leaving Brazil you have to study a minimum of Italian. Taormina is beautiful. worth it

Very nice trip.

The trip was very nice. The organization could be better. There was very little information on the way and almost no information in Taormina either. The tour guide didn't know her way around there either.

Very good German-speaking tour guide who introduced us very well to the history and life in southern Italy.

Follow guide's recommendation for lunch, was very good
