Full description
Be picked up from your local accomodation by a comfortable 8 seat vehicle which will then take you to the first stop, Savoca, a characteristic medieval town. There, visit one of the fascinating catacombs of the Cappuccini convent which hosts the mummified bodies of monks and nobles from Savoca. Next, visit bar Vitelli, famously known as the bar from the film "The Godfather", where you can taste delicious Sicilian granita and look at photos which were taken during the shooting of the film. Then, travel to the second town on the tour, the majestic Taormina. Visit the Greek Theatre, or one of the major ancient sites in Sicily which offers a unique panoramic view of the sea and Mount Etna. Walking along Corso Umberto, you can also visit the Cathedral and enjoy the stunning view of Capo Taormina bay. While in Taormina, enjoy a free snack with a delicious tasting of products from the Sicilian culinary tradition, tavola calda. Eat arancini, pizza, or calzoni, with Sicilian Doc wine. Afterwards, arrive at the final stop, Castelmola, a characteristic medieval suburb suspended between the sky and the sea. Enjoy a fantastic view of Etna on one side and the Ionian sea on the other, then, from Sant’Antonio square, begin your walk through the alleys. Around the small streets, it’s possible to see quaint shops that sell souvenirs, laces, and embroideries made by locals women.  Finally, visit Bar Turrisi for a coffee or some almond wine, a typical Sicilian dessert wine.

Our guide- Mr. Antonio was informative and very knowledgeable. He was professional, very engaging and had excellent communication skills. He was very patient and well-organised. With him around you dun hv to worry that u missed any detail of the tour. The lunch at a secluded secret hideout with panorama view was superb. He left us with a memorable Sicily GodFather/ Taormina/ savoca/ castelmola experience. We hope to have you once again when we join other tours. — Taylor & Mikee from Singapore 23/09/19
