This was first class, lovely guide who took us to a traditional Sicillian restaurant where we tried a selection of local wines a delicacies with some expert information about each one. After a short walk through the town we were treated to some stunning arias, sung exquisitely and expertly with so much emotion. During the interval we were treated to a glass of bubbly on the roof terrace, nice touch. Recommend!
This was a very personalized and enjoyable evening. Our guide walked us around and was very personable. The wine tasting was suburb and the opera performance was intimate and captivating. My wife and I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants a memorable experience.
A fun low-pressure evening
The whole experience was brilliant and I would recommend it to anyone who has the slightest love of music or wine. The theatre was small and intimate and gave the performance a very personal feel. The wine tasting was a pleasure to the senses .
The only t to be aware of is the distance between the two venues it can be hard for anyone who has difficulty walking far but the effort is well worth it.
The Opera was fantastic, the Soprano, Tenor and Maestro on the Piano were wonderful. However the wine tasting and appetizers were forgetable. It was in a very busy restaraunt and ths owner who was doing the wine tasting was busy with customers, felt like we were thd unwanted step child.
Great treat at end of our holiday. Wines excellent and described superbly with Sicilian nibbles very nice indeed. Opera arais superbly performed.
The wine tasting which was held in a restaurant that had only been open three weeks was excellent. The owner was very welcoming and passionate about Sicilian wine and food, both of which were fantastic. Enjoyed the opera concert and my only complaint was that the eveing was over too soon. Would definitely book this tour if i went to Taormina again and highly recommend it. The staff from the tour agency who accompanied us were friendly and extremely helpful. A lovely evening.
the whole evening was lovely. The winetasting was great, the opera very good, and would definately recommend this evening.
The tour started with a wine tasting in a local restaurant. The host at the restaurant was very welcoming and was an experienced sommelier who was passionate about the local wines. The wines came with some food as well - things like bruschetta topped with anchovies or parma ham and cheese with local honey. We stayed there for approx 1.5 hours and then went to the opera which was very central. The opera had a selection of songs sung by very talented singers ad was a great introduction to opera if you don't know much about it. I got the impression from the write up that we would also be shown around Taormina on the way, but we didn't really have any explanation of the place, although we did get to have a nice chat to the tour guide. I would recommend this tour and definitely glad I chose it. Made friends with the other 2 couples on the tour too and had a lovely procecco on the balcony during the interval.
On ringing the tour operator the day before as requested, we found the start time was to be 45 minutes earlier than the time stated. The walk to the wine tasting was short, convenient to the tour meeting point. We were offered three wines to taste, two white and one red. We were given a little information about each and a delicious variety of finger foods to accompany the wine. The walk to the theatre for the Italian opera was a fair distance away but this was not a problem. On arriving we had to wait quite a time before entering the building and then even longer inside, this was a shame and could have been avoided if the start time had not been put forward. The music was good and entertaining. The prosecco and nibbles outside on the terrace overlooking Taormina, at the interval, were enjoyable.
