Castelmola & Taormina private tour

Porta Catania in Taormina - or according to your needs

4 hours

Tour Type

Daily Tour

Group Size





It is a charming village located above Taormina. The most amazing thing of Castelmola consists in the breathtaking views of the whole surrounding area, that you will be able to enjoy from up there.

After visiting the ruins of the castle that gives the name to the village itself, you can take a break to enjoy a refreshing granita or a glass of almond wine at the San Giorgio bar, discovering, through the signatures left in the golden book of the bar, that a lot of important personalities, sat here in the past, writing enthusiastic comments and notes.

The combination of the visit of Taormina with Castelmola, a small village perched on a rocky hill at 530 meters above the sea level, will let you understand why this corner of Sicily became so popular all over the world. The road alone to reach this high spot is worth while. Once there you will be guided through the narrow little alleys to find out the ruins of a medieval castle and a surprising local hangout.

Early in the morning or by the sunset you can take the best pictures

Three Cheers and Five Stars for Chiara

Our wonderful guide, Chiara, met us outside our ship and the incredible tour began! Chiara was knowledgeable on the culture, history and geology of the area and blended them together so beautifully we felt we really knew and experienced the true Sicily. The village, Castelmola, high above the coast was a treat, as was Taormina. Plus, with ease Chiara took us inside all historic places avoiding lines and crowds. We will remember always the restaurant where we enjoyed lunch and amazing views! Chiara is 5 STARS!! (source:

Wonderful day with Chiara

We recently joined a group of 14 people on a tour of Taormina and Castelmola with Chiara. This was our second time in Taormina but the first time we had just wandered around on our own. What a different experience it was to tour with Chiara. She gave us so much information and insight into life in Sicily and Italy. She is so interesting, intelligent and opinionated. We had a wonderful day in Sicily thanks to Chiara. Also, thank you for recommending the best gelato place in the world!

Taormina and Castelmola

Chiara Rozzi greeted us at the hotel and we began a fascinating and quite enjoyable morning visiting the two towns. Ms Rozzi is very knowledgeable in the local history and attractions. If you wish to explore this area in detail and learn the deep history of these wonderful Sicilian towns call her. You will not be disappointed. We weren't!! (source:
