You’ll hit the streets of Sicily’s most visited town during a trip to Taormina, passing Mount Etna on the way. Taormina’s in a clifftop spot, so the drive up to its centre serves up great views of the coast. When you arrive, you’ll follow your guide for a tour of the city’s standout sight, the Teatro Greco. It’s a 5,400-seat ancient Greek amphitheatre. From the top of the seating area, you can take in panoramic views of Mount Etna and the Gulf of Catania in the distance. After you’ve taken some photos, you’ll then have some free time to wander around on your own. Taormina’s main public park is a 10-minute walk away, and it offers up plenty of spots that are ideal for a picnic. You can grab some food from the nearby supermarket. There’s also an 18th-century church a 10-minute walk away, too, which has a golden Baroque-style altar that’s worthy of a few photos. After a chance to shop for some authentic Sicilian almonds, you’ll then head back to the port.
