shore excursion from Catania, Sicily

Recommended Posts

Thoughts / opinions on  excursions to Taormina from Catania.....4 1/2 hours walking tour (allowing free time on your own)  or a 6 1/2 hours walking tour plus a short stay at a nearby beach.

I would do the 4 .5 hr tour. It probably covers ETNA AND  Taormina a or if it does Taormina alone youwill not have to stay the entire time with the group. They will tell you where to meet your bus/ mini van or other vehicle.

We did the 4.5 hour tour last month and loved it.  You just drive by Etna, but if the sky is clear, the views are fantastic.  We didn't go to the beach, but I heard that it is very nice and pretty cool.  I think Isola Bella beach is at the base of Taormina and is beautiful.  I think that might be a good option.  Here is the link to my photo blog on our 3 stops in Sicily.  The pics of Taormina are at the end - just scroll down.   sicily photos
