Discover with me the historical centre of Taormina. We will take a walk and I will tell you anything about the main monuments of this lovely spot but also about Sicily and its long history and the customs of its inhabitants. I will also let you know everything about the Mount Etna, the view of which made Taormina so popular. Just come and I will be glad to show you other sites, provide new historical, social cultural perspective, and if you wish, highlight local food and wine as well.

If you aren't visiting Taormina for long but still want to explore and experience this beautiful town, you must spend those few hours with Chiara! She knows everything about its history, the people and the best restaurants. We highly recommend her tour for anyone who appreciates the culture and rich history of Sicily!

We booked with Chiara to take my husband and I on the Godfather tour as it was not available as a group tour at the time we wanted. We also did the walking tour of Taormina with her.

Dear guests, the Godfather tour offers me the chance to explain the phenomenon of Mafia and the effects that it brought in Sicily, Italy and in the whole world... Sometimes we think it is still like described in the novel by Puzo but it transformed itself and developed in such a way that we can hardly distinguish it in the... More

Hidden insights, a sense of history and great fun. I'm so pleased we asked Chiara to be ours for a morning. Her depth of knowledge added greatly to our visit especially at the Temple. What's more her suggestions as to what else to do and see were invaluable. Chiara is a veritable mine of information.

My spouse and best friend went with Chiara, the tour guide, for a day tour. We decided to book a private tour, versus one with the cruise shop we had arrived on. Chiara was wonderful!

Chiara gave me a tour of the town, focusing on the Greek Theatre. I'm sure most would agree, learning more about the history of a place makes it more meaningful. And in this case, I don't think I could have chosen a better guide. Chiara really explained things in detail and with enthusiasm. She also was able to answer a... More

From Mount Etna we travelled to Taormina for the rest of the day spending the afternoon at the beach followed by an evening walking around the town watching street acts and soaking up the atmosphere, and dinning at one of Taormina’s lovely restaurants. When travelling back to Catania we actually witnessed Mount Etna erupting! Taormina is a beautiful small town... More

Etna, impressive views, everything is calling me back! Beautiful people nicely dressed!
