Cruise ships anchor at Giardini-Naxos. Passengers are offloaded via tender boats to the pier Porto Scaro Nuovo on the waterfront. Shuttle buses then transport cruise passengers from the dock to Taormina. There are also regular public buses to Taormina.
Situated along Sicily's Northeast coast, on the Gulf of Catania, Taormina lies 820 feet above the sea overlooking Mount Etna. The strategic position of Taormina has attracted many occupants, including the Romans, Phoenicians and Greeks. During the 6th century BC, Greeks were the first to settle here, creating a grand theatre in a glamarous position. The theatre was remodeled by the Romans, who controlled Sicily by the middle of the 3rd century BC. Taormina prospered in trade during the Middle Ages, and in addition to a pair of magnificent palaces, many elaborate public buildings and mansions were erected in the heart of the city. Remember to visit these historic sites and shop along the cobblestoned streets of Corso Umberto. Don't miss the opportunity to take the cable car down to the sea. If you prefer swimming then take to the beaches of Naxos di Giardino, only 8 km away.
Highlights: Mt Etna, Amphitheatre, Gothic Cathedral
