                                         TAORMINA & CATANIA - Full Day  excursion                                          
Duration: Approx. 7 hours - AM departure

You will meet our Tour Guide and by deluxe Coach will be taken along the eastern Coast of Sicily to the beautiful Taormina, situated on a rocky plateau of the steep Monte Tauro, which dominates the Ionian coast, with Etna rising majestically in the background. 
Downtown Taormina represents a variety of historical periods, from early Greek and Roman settlements, to Byzantine and Medieval remains, up to 15th-century Catalan buildings and 17th-century Baroque churches. 
You can stroll main street -- Corso Umberto -- with its art and designer shops, Baroque churches and Palazzos -- and get a glimpse of the breathtaking Greek theatre (Ticket not included) facing the sea. Your guide will make suggestions where you can have an excellent meal.
On the way back
we will see Catania and his Monuments and Churches.The cathedral overlooking the square may be magnificent, but it is not photographed as much as ‘U Liotru’, a slightly incongruous statue of an elephant carrying an obelisk, which stands at the piazza's center. The monument was constructed in 1735 by the sculptor Giovanni Battista Vaccarini, using black volcanic basalt for the elephant, and marble for the obelisk. Many think the origins of the city’s emblem lie in the 3 foot high Mediterranean pygmy elephant that used to inhabit Sicily in prehistoric times. Piazza Duomo is about a mile north of the cruise dock.

                                        Mt. Etna & Taormina - Full day excursion                                                                  
Duration: Approximately 7 hours - AM departure

Catania is built on the foot slopes of towering Mount Etna, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Ship excursions typically involve taking a 30 mile winding bus ride to Rifugio Sapienza, on the northern side of the peak. Various expeditions are available from the refuge, including a hike around the impressive Silvestri craters.
The beautiful town of Taormina, perched high above the Mediterranean sea, is located equidistant from Catania and Messina, and is a popular excursion from both. Stroll along picturesque Corso Umberto, enjoy a coffee in bustling Piazza IX Aprile, marvel at the spectacular Greek amphitheater (Entrance ticket not included).
In the afternoo we will have time to discover Taormina. It is situated on a rocky plateau of the steep Monte Tauro, which dominates the Ionian coast, with Etna rising majestically in the background. Downtown Taormina represents a variety of historical periods, from early
Greek and Roman settlements, to Byzantine and Medieval remains, up to 15th-century Catalan buildings and 17th-century Baroque churches. You can stroll main street -- Corso Umberto -- with its art and designer shops, Baroque churches and Palazzos -- and get a glimpse of the breathtaking Greek theatre (Ticket not included) facing the sea.
