Taormina and Sicilian Flavours

€ 545.00

Its enviable position, between a frightening volcano and the enchanting Sicilian coast, together with its delightful historic center, make Taormina a town of which it is difficult not to fall in love. But other wonders can be found just outside the town, like the wines that are produced on the Etna volcano, and that you can taste directly on site.

In addition to seeing some of the most famous places in Taormina (and walking along its main alley crowded with elegant cafes, shops and a marvelous little Cathedral), this tour will also help you in discovering the best flavors of Eastern Sicily!
You will visit Taormina's Greek theater (admission not included, please contact us if you want to make a pre-reservation), which was built in the 3rd century BC. Later, it was renovated by the Romans, and currently serves as the main center for art performances which are usually arranged in summer.  From inside the theater you can enjoy the breathtaking view of one of the most famous panoramas in Italy, with Mount Etna in the distance and the sea at the foot of Toarmina, surrounded by the ancient steps of the theater.

During the tour you will have some time for shopping before moving to the next destination: one of the old wine estates located on the slopes of the volcano Etna. The typical aromatic ripening that characterizes the colour and taste of the red grapes and is essential for the aroma of the local white wines is due to the changes of temperature between night and day that you encounter at the highest altitudes of the Mt. Etna.

With a scenic drive uphill the volcano slopes, you will finally enjoy a delicious lunch paired with the locally produced wines at one of the most romantic and beautiful farm in Southern Italy surrounded with vineyards, palm and olive trees, while admiring the panorama of Eastern Sicilian coastline from the highest volcano in Europe (and one of most active!)
