For those who know The Godfather movie and love small little villages, with magic views over the sea!
First stop: Our first town of the one day tour will be Savoca, a characteristic medieval town. We will visit one of the fascinating catacombs of the Cappuccini Convent which hosts the mummified bodies of monks and nobles from Savoca. The bar Vitelli is the highlight of the tour: look at photos taken during the shooting of the film “Il Padrino” (The Godfather).
Second stop: Our second town will be the majestic Taormina. Walking tour in Taormina: along Corso Umberto, visit of Cathedral, the small streets, monumental public gardens. Possibility to visit the Greek Theatre alone (ticket is not included in the price), one of the major Ancient sites in Sicily, which offers a unique panoramic view of the sea and Mount Etna. Stops to see from 2 panoramic points of view: Isola Bella, and Bay of Capo Taormina.
Free time for lunch (lunch is not included in the price). You'll receivesome tips about some typical trattorie or bars where you can sample the delights of Sicilian cuisine.
Third stop: Next stop will be in Castelmola, a characteristic medieval suburb suspended between the sky and the sea. Castelmola is considered a big balcony on Taormina. Also here the possibility to enjoy a fantastic view of Etna on one side and the Ionian sea on the other. From the square Sant’Antonio begins our walk in the alleys. Around the small streets it’s possible to see small shops that sell souvenirs, laces and embroideries made by local women. Finally the last stop in Castelmola is the visit of the “Bar Turrisi”, a very typical bar with hilarious surprises to taste almond wine.
