We chose Taormina On Your Own tour. We joined a bus from the port and drove approximately 30 mins to this beautiful hilltop town of Taormina. We had approximately 3 hours on our own to wander. Lovely shops, boutiques and cafes to take advantage of.
Wonderful amphatheatre with beautiful views out to sea. Also a gondola goes from the town below to the beach - great for a swim in the clear blue Mediterranean.
Port of Souda - caught bus into town of Chania. The local bus had buses running every 10 mins from the port to Chania and vice versa. The return price per person was Euro 3.00
The old town of Chania is just delightful with a maze of small alleyways and streets full of shops, markets and cafes. To top it all off - the most quaint Venetian Harbour encircled by cafes and restaurants.
