Discover Taormina on a self-guided exploration of this medieval treasure perched above the Mediterranean. On the drive into town, a local expert will gladly answer questions and offer tips on exploring Taormina. Upon arrival, the day is all yours. Enjoy approximately 3.5 hours to wind along cobblestone streets, stopping whenever and wherever it suits you. There are, however, a few places you’ll surely want to visit, including the Greco-Roman Theater. Built in the 3rd century BC and partly in ruins, it hosts operatic and theatrical performances to this very day, and the views of soaring Mt. Etna are spectacular.
