Explore Taormina, an authentic gem of Sicily on a 2-hour private guided walking tour. Discover the monuments, the buildings and the stories that made Taormina one of the most important and beautiful towns in the whole Sicily, in the past and now as well.

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, besides 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 visit the famous Greek-Roman Amphitheatre and then see the Piccolo Teatro Odeon, the Corvaia Palace, Corso Umberto and Porta Messina. 

You'll fall in love with Taormina!
