Shared a taxi with 2 other passengers and drove to Taormina. What a beautiful hilltop town. The drive from Catania to Taormina is breathtaking with Mt. Etna overshadowing the route. The Med is so ideallic from the road.

We had limited time in Catania from 2-8pm, so markets were closed by the time we got there and other sites closed shortly after we arrived. It was dark coming back to the ship. However, it's an easy port to do on your own. The downtown area is walkable from the ship, approximately 15 minutes to the Duomo and square. Nearby are markets, lots of churches, shops, and some cafes. We did not see Mt. Etna, which would have required a bus or some other transportation. Read Less

We did the Etna & Taormina tour which was great. Best thing in Taormina is the ancient theatre - spectacular views.

Had a cooking class as my shore excursion. Lovely experience! Will never forget the trip through the marketplace.
