When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
We schedule your return to port to ensure you arrive in plenty of time to re-join your ship - normally 1 hour before the scheduled sailing time. Where you have free time after the end of your tour, then it is your responsibility to ensure you re-join the ship on time.

The views are absolutely breathtaking as your driver navigates the twist and turns before getting to the parking area.

At the parking area, when we disembark the transportation we take a lift up to the road entrance to this pedestrianised town. There is an incline of around 50 yards before the entrance.

Once in Taormina we embark on a short walking tour of around 1 hour. Those who wish to experience Taormina on their own may advise the guide, your guide will then point out the meeting time and place for everybody to meet at the end.

The walking tour will take you through the quaint Sicilian streets full of vibrance and shops and restaurants in abundance.

The first stop will be the Cathedral Square, your guide will give the history and all of the information about the Cathedral situated within the square before continuing with the tour.

A viewing point from the town is the next stop, be prepared to be amazed by the incredible views of the coast down below.

There is an option to visit the Greek Roman Theatre during your hour free time at the end. If you wish to do this please inform your guide, who will take you to the entrance (entry fee to the Theatre is 10€ payable locally).

After the free time you will meet back up with the guide who will escort you back to your transportation ready to take you back to the port in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure.
