Practically we can establish everything, you must only choose how and where you want to arrive. Here is a foretaste of the itineraries we have thought for you: let’s start just from Taormina.
Taormina tour by car
Taormina is surely one of the most important Sicilian destinations when we speak of tourism. The reason is simple: this location succeeds in concentrating historical monuments, natural beauties and a good cooking. It has been famous since the ancient times: for instance it was the favourite destination of the Grand Tour, that travel so dear to the European aristocrats of the past.
Nowadays Taormina appears as an art wealth , a location that must be slowly discovered, in no hurry. Among the monuments to see absolutely, you can find the Dome, the Anglican Church of Saint George, the Domus San Pancrazio, Palazzo Corvaja, the Villa Comunale and one of the most beautiful places in Sicily : the Ancient Theatre, a proof of the passage of the Greek culture in Taormina. You cannot miss then the view with Isola Bella in the background!
The city of Taormina is perfect also if you prefer a holiday characterized by nature, sea and relax. By a Clab Service’s luxury car you can connect the different souls of this location. Anyway you can also take advantage of this convenience to discover other places in the surroundings and reach them.
Outings in Savoca and Forza d’Agrò
One of the most popular tours is the one which embraces the small villages near Taormina. One of the first stops, for example, is Giardini Naxos, a district very near to it, with its famous Nike of Kalkis. After that there’s another village that everyone knows: Savoca, a centre located about 30 kilometres from Taormina which has remained suspended over time.
Coming to Savoca is like jumping back into the past, so as into an old film. Here, as a matter of fact, was shot Il Padrino: you can taste a lemon water ice at the coffee bar “ Vitelli” and visit the Church of Santa Lucia where the wedding scene between Apollonia and Michael was shot. From Savoca then, it’s easy to reach Forza d’Agrò, a delicious village which still preserves its medieval structure.
Day trip on the Mount Etna
From Taormina it’s easy to plan a day trip on the Mount Etna, the big volcano on the east coast of Sicily. Rather, it’s simple if you have at disposal a professional driver like those who accompany our bookings. We can leave from Taormina when you prefer and reach Mount Etna through an itinerary which touches different villages around the volcano.
For instance there will be a stop in Zafferana Etnea, with a visit to the Church of Santa Maria della Provvidenza. Along the route you will see some lava flows: we have almost reached our destination. Once arrived at 2000 metres of elevation you will admire a breath-taking view and have a walk on the craters dated 1892, enjoying the last lava flows.
The excursion on Mount Etna, however, doesn’t make happy only trekking and nature lovers : good local cooking is waiting for you too. During the trip, in fact, there will be a visit to a local farm where you’ll taste local wine, orange, strawberry, eucalyptus and lemon- flavoured honey, almond sweets, olives and extra virgin olive oil. You will also stop at Murgo winery of San Michele which looks onto the sea and the volcano.
From Taormina to Cefalù by car
With Clab Service you don’t have to be necessarily content with Taormina’ surroundings. You can also get to more distant destinations like Catania and Siracusa , if you prefer going southwards,or Messina, northwards. From this point you can continue on the northern side of Sicily, stop in Tindari to admire the statue of the Black Virgin Mary, till Cefalù.
Cefalù is a place telling the ancientest soul of Sicily. Its most important monument is the Dome, which was built in 1131 aC and has been for long the most prestigious religious seat on the island. Very interesting is also the Mandralisca Museum which is located in the ancient residence of Baron Enrico Piraino.
