    Stop At: Porta Messina, Corso Umberto 1, 98039, Taormina, Sicily Italy

    Meet your local guide at the centrally located point in the very heart of Taormina and start your small-group 2,5-hour walking tour of the town while learning some of the Sicilian language, as well as body language and hand gestures – an essential part of Italian culture. Sicilian – not a simple dialect. UNESCO recognizes the Sicilian status as a mother tongue. While you admire the incredible beauty of Taormina with its charming narrow streets, ancient buildings, medieval churches, your guide, who is a true Sicilian, will teach you the key words and phrases of colorful and authentic Sicilian language that every tourist should surely know to feel and speak like a local. You don’t need to have any prior knowledge of the Sicilian language, just a passion to learn something new. As you stroll through Taormina’s picturesque streets, learn the names of traditional local food, as well as how to shop at a market, order a coffee or a glass of wine speaking with locals – like a local. Discover a world of famous Italian hand gestures and try some of them at your next opportunity - when you drop in at a famous rosticceria in Taormina and order an arancino and a drink using your new skills in Sicilian language and Italian gestures. While you enjoying this delicious Sicilian street food, your guide will explain you how and why the Sicilian language was developed and the difference between Italian and doc Sicilian language. This fun experience is an engaging way to gain a new skill and feel and speak like a local.
