I am in charge of planning an 8-hour shore excursion in Taormina for a group of 11 members of a California club, Unione Siciliana (ages 60-80, so long uphill treks are not possible!) We will have a minibus and a licensed guide. I would really appreciate any suggestions for improving the experience and/or the itinerary for the day.
So far, I have planned: 9:30 a.m. pickup at the dock, Giardini Naxos. Panoramic drive around Taormina for orientation. Visit to Greek Theater. Liesurely Walk along Corso Umberto to Piazza IX Aprile, with a little free time for shopping. Pick-up and drive to Azienda Liperus for lunch. Then to Castelmola for the view and walk-around, maybe a coffee and pastry at Ciccino's. Drive back to Taormina, where those who wish to can take the funivia down the hill. Back to the dock by 5 p.m.
Comments? Suggestions? Grazie mille!
