Taormina Walking Tour
If you are in Sicily you cannot miss our Taormina Walking Tour with our Evolved Guide certified tourist guide, registered with the Sicilian Region.
The city is a real pearl of the Mediterranean and you will fall in love with it: it offers suggestive panoramas, thanks to its sea views and thanks to Etna which dominates the horizon, but also a thousand-year history. Dominated by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans, Taormina represents an extraordinary mix of cultures and architectures.
Taormina is known all over the world for its splendid Greek-Roman Theater: built in the Hellenistic age, the Theater hosted shows and, in later life, also fights between gladiators and between men and ferocious beasts (the so-called venationes). The theatrical structure is still used today as a location for concerts and award ceremonies such as the “David di Donatello” film award ceremony; it had been selected as a scenario for the meeting of the G7 leaders in 2017 . After visiting the enchanting theater, your local guide will make you discover the historic center of the city of Taormina.
Near the theater you can admire the splendid Palazzo Corvaja, an important historical building, built between the 11th and 15th centuries, and the nearby Roman theater, the so-called Odeon, at the Church of S. Caterina d’Alessandria. Walking through the main street of the city, Corso Umberto I, you can immerse yourself in the wonderful Sicilian atmosphere, made of stories, cultures and perfumes. You will also see the splendid Cathedral of Taormina, the so-called Cathedral of S. Niccolò di Bari, the main cult building in the city (built in the 13th century and belonging to the Romanesque-Gothic style).
