(Pick up from Catania port) To arrive in Sicily and only enjoy Taormina would be a crime, whilst beautiful, the real Sicily is on your doorstep waiting to be discovered. Get a taste of bustling city life in Catania through the famous markets, artisans, cafès and lively piazzas before wandering through the characteristic small seaside towns along the coast. The best place to start exploring Catania is from the Piazza del Duomo. After a walk around the piazza, the Via Etnea and a look into the Duomo, we’ll stop at the Caffè del Duomo, famous for its Belle Epoque interiors and wonderful array of snacks including the best almond candies in Catania. We move out of the city to the seaside towns of Aci Castello and Aci Trezza, two pretty coast line Sicilian villages. Aci Castello boasts a rich production of citrus fruits, olives, grapes, almonds, cereals and amazing restaurants. Aci Trezza is a small but charming fishing village, with its small harbor full of fishing boats and typical fishing trattories. Both of them have a backdrop the famous "Faraglioni" created by lava rock by an ancient sub-marine eruption. We will then take you to the historical centre of Taormina and under our tip, you will have your own free time to explore the village, stroll the mean streets and narrow ways with picturesque corners and nice shops. We can also suggest a good local place to let you have something to eat. The driver will be waiting in Taormina and at your most convenient time, will drive you back to your ship.
