About
Enjoy a day to the discovery of two wonderful locations of the Ionian coast: Messina and Taormina. Starting from Messina, drive for almost 50 minutes and reach Taormina and walk from Porta Catania – the Southern entrance to the town – towards Corso Umberto which is its main street. Here take the opportunity to discover the monuments, the wonderful squares with their views above Mt Etna and the coast and taste an authentic Sicilian cannoli or a delicious arancino. After two hours and 30 minutes in this unique location drive back towards Messina and admire the historical heritage of Sicily’s third-largest city visiting the monuments and the churches but also the natural beauties driving among the coast till Capo Peloro – the nearest point of the island to the mainland and also the best point of observation of the Strait of Messina. At the end of the tour, return to the departure point where the driver and the guide will say goodbye inviting you for a long second journey in Sicily.
