See two spectacular Sicilian towns on this one unique shuttle excursion. Perched spectacularly on the side of a mountain, Taormina is one of Sicily's most popular summer destinations, a chic resort town popular with high-rollers on holiday and those wanting a taste of Sicily's sweet life or la dolce vita. Located on the eastern shores of Sicily is the beautiful medieval village of Castelmola. Ignored by many visitors to Sicily, this quaint mountaintop community offers unparalleled views of Mount Etna, Taormina, the Bay of Giardini Naxos, and the Strait of Messina. Built to protect and defend Taormina from invaders, today this quiet village makes for an interesting respite from the hustle and bustle of Taormina below.

Upon meeting your professional, English speaking guide close to your Messina cruise port, you will begin your 1.5-hour journey along the Sicilian coast in the comfort of a luxury, air-conditioned coach bus. Once you arrive in Taormina, you will enjoy 3 hours of free time to explore this picturesque city by the sea. You decide where to go and what you want to see! Maye take in The Ancient Theater with its spectacular view of Mount Etna and the bay of Naxos, Porta Messina, the northern entrance to the city, lined with small craft shops, antiques shops, small streets, fragrant, and multicolored alleys, the Duomo di San Nicola, built in the thirteenth century, reminiscent of Norman cathedrals, and Park Giovanni Colonna, the public garden of Taormina, which once belonged to the English noblewoman Lady Florence Trevelyan, built in the late nineteenth century on the model of the English garden, are just a few of the sites to explore. Just note that any entrance fees to attractions or sights as well as food and beverages are not included.

Then at the appointed time and spot, you will meet your driver for the next leg of the adventure. Once back on the bus you will make the 20-minute climb to Castelmola where you will enjoy capturing its breathtaking panoramic views. In the village itself, there are a number of interesting cafes, shops, churches, restaurants, and narrow alleys to discover. With no traffic inside the center of Castelmola, you can stroll with ease through the historic heart of this ancient community.

Your departure time from Castelmola is at 03:30 PM, please make sure to be on time at the designated meeting point. Once in the comfort of your luxury transportation, you will return to the same meeting area you started from and where you can walk back to your Messina cruise terminal or continue exploring at your leisure if time allows.

Please note: This excursion runs only when a cruise is on port! A separate voucher will be emailed to you. You must print the voucher and give it to the local operator in order to do the excursion; do not give them your Shore Excursioneer eticket.

We booked several excursions for our most recent cruise. This was the best! Do not book with your ship...this saves you money and is the SAME local company the cruiseline uses.
