Port of Giardini Naxos

This Sicilian resort town features several popular beaches that get quite busy in the high season, most of which are lined with shops, cafes and bars. Otherwise, visitors will find a small archaeological park and museum detailing some of the town's history. From this port, cruisers can also visit Taormina, which can even be reached by foot by more active travelers.
