Taormina Wine Tour

Gourmet Touring in Taormina and Mount Etna's Winelands

Taormina is one of the most magical places in Italy! The enchanting town clings atop a steep lush hillside and hangs right over the sparkling Ionian Sea. The massive snowcapped Mount Etna looms on the horizon. Located on the Eastern coast of Sicily, north of Catania, Taormina is the jewel of the island. The town is full of delightful 18th-century villas, charming cobblestoned laneways, high-end boutiques, antique shops, wine bars, perfumeries, and romantic restaurants. You can enjoy dramatic sweeping views over the coastline’s beaches and coves from many nooks and corners in Taormina.

This beautiful and wealthy Sicilian town has a long and fascinating history. The Greeks founded trading colonies on the island as far back as 735BC and built beautiful towns such as Syracuse, Agrigento, and indeed Taormina (then called Tauromenion). We can still enjoy the excellently preserved Ancient Greek Theatre of Taormina, perched overlooking the entire bay in a magnificent natural environment. Taormina was a prosperous trading center and eventually came under Roman rule, and when Rome fell, it became a vital hub during the Sicilian Byzantine period. Later, conquerors and inhabitants included the Arabs, Normans, Spanish, and French (under Napoleon) until finally, Sicily was incorporated into greater Italy.

The architectural and gastronomic influences of so many cultures are evident today. For foodies and wine lovers, Taormina is a “must-do” as it is home to some of the best restaurants in Sicily and on the doorstep of Mount Etna, which is producing some of Italy’s most exciting wines. We have designed this luxurious tour in Sicily for guests looking for gorgeous scenery, stunning food and wine, charming accommodation, and a private driver-guide.
