I will give you a short and sweet introduction to Taormina and Sicilian culture from my own perspective. We will explore the best restaurants, bars, shops, vendors, as well as historical sites and the essentials of navigating your stay here such as transportation, supermarket, pharmacy etc. I can teach you some important phrases in Italian to use in your travels here and recommendations for food, drink, activity, and anything you need. The tour will begin at Porta Catania (entrance to the historic center) and we will continue down the main street until we end at Porta Messina (the other entrance to the historic center). From there I can direct/accompany you to wherever you want to go or do!
I came to Taormina in the beginning of 2018 to study Italian, and I love it so much here I ended up staying after my studies. Over the year I have gotten to know this city, its history, people, and language like my own. I had too much fun last summer introducing foreign students and friends to Taormina, and now I would love to share my experiences with you!
We will explore the essential destinations and hidden gems of the historic center of Taormina, one of the most famous and beautiful villages in Sicily. Skipping the tourist traps and the 'hits or misses' I will introduce you to the local favorites and lesser known spots this charming town I now call home has to offer from those who have spent years exploring it to those who are stopping by for a unique experience.
