Continuation to Taormina, well known as the “Pearl of Sicily”. You will have the possibility to visit the Greek Roman theatre or free time to discover Taormina with its beautiful small and charming spots and have a coffee in Piazza IX Aprile. The amazing Greek Theater  has a diameter of 109 meters, it is the second largest classical theatre in Sicily, only surpassed by the theatre in Syracuse. The beauty of the place is set off by its great panoramic frame. It is certainly unique for the view on Mount Etna. Free time to visit the old city centre, the cathedral and the famous Corso Umberto for doing shopping. Return to Cefalù via Messina. Stop for a panoramic picture in the strait of Messina to admire Calabria coast.
