Know More about this tour

Spectacularly perched on the side of a mountain, Taormina is one of Sicily's most popular destinations, in summer and not only. It's rich in history, art, culture and tradition, beside being located in one of the most breathtaking spots of the whole country.

Founded in the 4th century BC, Taormina enjoyed great prosperity under the Greek ruler Gelon II and later under the Romans, but fell into quiet obscurity after being conquered by the Normans in 1087. Its reincarnation as a tourist destination dates to the 18th century, when northern Europeans discovered it on the Grand Tour. Among its fans was DH Lawrence, who lived here between 1920 and 1923.

With this 2-hour private guided tour, you will enjoy the most important treasures of the town. You'll explore some of its most important and famous sites and admire the stunning signs of the Roman and Greek eras all around you. You'll get to see, for example, the Ancient Greek Theatre, the Piccolo Teatro Odeon, the Corvaia Palace, Corso Umberto and Porta Messina. You'll fall in love with Taormina.

  • A great tour and our guide Sarah very knowledgeable. Taormina is a small town but Sarah filled in our 2 hours with historical information

  • Maria Rosa was excellent and very informative - best to do this tour the day you arrive in Taormina - she shows you all the spots which makes it easy to wander for the rest of you stay. Highly recommend this tour.

  • We met our guide, Maria Rosa, at Taormina's Porta Messina. She is an excellent guide and her tour was very good. The tour included both well known and lesser know sites of Taormina. We appreciated her professional but friendly style, and her obvious extensive knowledge of history, culture, and architecture for the city and region. We highly recommend her and the private guided tour!
