A great way to learn about a beautiful town!
… The intinerary was great, the guide was knowledgable, helpful and spoke very good English plus you can’t beat the venue (Taormina!). Walk was very doable even for my 70 year old sister. I would definitely recommend it unless you’re not interested in the history and story of this beautiful comune!…
