On this trip to Taormina, you can come up with your own itinerary. You’ll be taken from the port to the town centre, then you’re free to go where you want. Taormina dates back to 734BC, so there are a lot of historical sites for you to see. The shining star’s the Teatro Greco, an ancient amphitheatre that looks out over the coast. From the top of the seating section, which in its heyday held 5,400 people, you can take some eye-widening pictures of the Gulf of Catania. From here, we’d recommended taking a stroll over to the Piazza del Duomo, where you can visit the town’s Medieval cathedral. On the way, you’ll head through a shop-filled street, so you can browse for traditional Sicilian souvenirs, like plates, vases and pottery on the way. You’ll find that the cathedral here looks a lot different to those you find in the country’s bigger cities. Rather than having lots of elaborate spires and arches, it’s an unassuming brick building that looks a bit like a small castle. The walls of the main room are lined with a collection of different altar that are worthy of a few photos.
