Castelmola – Taormina – Messina

Discovering the Pearl of the Ionian Sea: a tour of Archaeology, Sea and Ancient Myths

(Price: € 40.00 per person, minimum 10 people)


Messina, “Gate of Sicily”, has always been a city with a commercial character.

It was founded by the Greeks who gave it the name of “Zancle” (sickle) linked to the shape of its port. Later it was conquered by the Romans, then by the Byzantines, the Arabs and, finally, by the Normans.

It is the Sicilian town closest to the Italian Peninsula and well connected to it by a ferry system.


Castelmola – Tourist town, small and well preserved, is located on top of a hill overlooking the Ionian Sea a few kilometers from Taormina. For its naturalistic and artistic qualities, it is part of the circuit of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

The highest point of Castelmola is reached by climbing up a path, from the main square of the village, Piazza Sant’Antonino, to the ruins of a castle. In the square, a splendid viewpoint offers a breathtaking view of the Ionian coast and the city of Taormina, the sea and the Calabrian coast.


Taormina – International tourist center at about 200 meters above sea level, is famous for its beautiful natural landscape, the beauty of the sea and its artistic heritage. The birth of this important island tourist center is linked to the arrival, in 358 BC, of some Greek refugees from the nearby city of Naxos, an ancient Greek island colony previously conquered by Dionysius I of Syracuse. From this origin came the name Tauromenion, which later evolved into the current one.

The particular conformation of the territory makes Taormina look like a large terrace enriched by a beautiful panoramic view in which the nearby volcano Etna stands out in a powerful way.
