This shore day trip gives you the opportunity to admire a unique natural unspoiled landscape, before enjoying a relaxing time in Taormina.
Our driver will pick you up from your cruise port at your most preferred time. On board of comfortable air-conditioned sedans or minivans, you will reach the Alcantara Gorges. Located about 20 km from Taormina, the gorges are real canyons made ??of black lava walls up to 50 meters high, in the typical shape of a prism that the rocks have taken during the cooling process. Within the grooves, the toning and crystal clear waters of the river Alcantara run surrounded by an unspoiled landscape, with rare flora and fauna.
After your visit to the gorges, the driver will drop you off in Taormina center, where you will have free time to explore the pearl of Mediterranean: the wonderful Greek Roman Theatre with terrific views over Mount Etna and the bay, the Cathedral of San Nicolò di Bari, the Public Gardens, the fascinating Corso Umberto with its boutiques and colorful balconies and much more. You will have the chance to take the cable car (cost € 3,00 per person one way) to reach the bay of Taormina and see Isola Bella, which is a protected natural site as well as a beautiful beach.
The driver will pick you up from the bay or the center at agreed time to take you back to your cruise ship.
