Taormina and Castelmola - Excursions from Port
The tour will start picking you up from Messina port.
We get the highway to Taormina, from where we will drive up to the village of Castelmola (450 mt.). Castelmola is a small and enchanting village just above Taormina, with an amazing landscape and a great view of Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, and wonderful landscape of Giardini-Naxos bay. A walk to visit the most characteristic places of the village, then we move to Taormina, the ancient Greek colony with its amazing pedestrian path, the Greek theatre, the monuments, the shops, the famous restaurants and pubs and much more.
In Messina we will see a church with bronze statues (King Christ church) and also a viewpoint, that's one of the oldest fortress in Messina. The last stop of the excursion is the cathedral of Messina with its very particular astronomical clock (the biggest in the world).
