Know More about this tourWhen your cruise ship docks in Taormina, set off to meet your guide near Porta Catania, and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll follow your guide through the leafy city streets to Borgo Medievale – Taormina’s oldest quarter.
Stop for pictures in glamorous Piazza del Duomo, seeing the Baroque fountain that bears the city’s emblem – the Centauressa – and admiring the impressive city hall. Work your way toward the plush 5-star San Domenico hotel and hear of its use as an ancient monastery in bygone days.
Visit the black-and-white-paved Piazza IX Aprile to soak up the views of the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna, and then circle around to glide to Taormina’s main street, Corso Umberto. Villa Comunale is nearby, so head inside to discover a lush city park with views as colorful as its flowers.
Make the most of the shade beneath the park's lofty Cypress trees while meandering around, and then head back out to the city streets. The city’s star attraction, Teatro Greco, lies ahead so have your camera ready to capture photos of this incredibly preserved Ancient Greek amphitheater. Hear about the gladiatorial games that the Romans once held here, and of the film festivals that the theater plays host to nowadays.
