Overview

Taormina and Castelmola tour with Greek Theatre will let you experience the history of one of the Sicilian Greek colonies and its astonishing ancient Theatre, used as a film set for many films and TV series, such as the recent White Lotus Sicily show.

The tour starts with a visit to Castelmola Sicily a picturesque village situated just above Taormina, the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful setting and a wonderful outlook over the magnificent bay of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna rising in the distance.
Then our journey continues with a Taormina walking tour, seeing the Aragonese-style Porta Catania and Corso Umberto, once part of the ancient Roman street Via Valeria.
Enjoy a Taormina walking tour visiting the monuments of the town, as well as the most exclusive shops, restaurants, and hotels, such as the famous San Domenico Palace and the newest White Lotus Sicily location and the theatre of Taormina, the second-largest in Sicily, built by Greeks and Romans in the 3rd century BC.
