What You Can Expect

Taormina Food and Wine Walking Tour

Taste Authentic Sicilian Wines

Begin your tour along Corso Umberto I in central Taormina, where you’ll join up with your guide and take off into the evening-lit streets. Pass an ancient Roman theater, the 15th-century Palazzo Corvaja and learn about the evolution of Sicilian food as you go.

Step into the garden area of your first stop and meet the local chef, who will welcome you with a cool glass of prosecco. Settle into your seat and sample four local fish dishes, such as mixed fried fish with vegetables or grilled octopus and saffron potatoes. Enjoy an accompanying glass of grillo white wine, an ancient Sicilian variety, while you eat.

Afterward, stroll through Taormina’s historic center to a family-run wine bar. Sip and swirl three local red wines, such as Etna Rossa or nero d’avola, and savor a selection of bruschetta, cheese with marmalade, honey and caponata (eggplant relish) or cold cut meat.

Travel to your final stop for dessert and treat your sweet tooth to cannoli (pastries filled with ricotta cream) and torrone (an almond and honey candy). Then toast to your evening out with some dessert wine and Limoncello before concluding at your original departure point.

Alfredo met us right on time and is very knowledgable and loves what he does. He took an interest in all the people in our group. We learned about all the food and wine we tasted and the origins of each. There was a ton of food! We had a light dinner based on some of the reviews we read, but I can tell you there was more than enough food. Alfredo also taught us about many of the local traditions and customs while walking through Taormina

We met Di Maura Alfredo in Taormina with two other couples. Alfredo was extremely gregarious, humerous and a delight to accompany on a food and wine tour. We made three stops in two hours. The first was different white wines with mussels, swordfish, shrimp and anchovies. The second was the reds with bruschetta, olives, prosciutto and cheeses. The third was a dessert stop with four varieties and appropriate dessert wines. Alfredo explained the grapes for each wine and the best way ro taste and serve them.
I would rate this tour five stars as it expresses the Italian's love for foods and wines.

3 stops at 3 great places.
3 or 4 Typical Sicilian fish courses at the first stop with good white wine. The portions offered to the group were generous and the quality of the food really good. Off for a short walk and some information about Taormina and discovering some of the quieter back streets and alleyways. The second stop was a wine bar where we had plates of salami, prosciutto and local cheeses with 3 different generous glasses of red wine. Our final stop was on the busy Corso Umberto at a traditional pastry shop for canolli, almond pastries and other sweet goodies. Good tour, good guide and great company. We revisited all the venues over our next few days in town

We got the time of the tour wrong - thought it was 7 and at 7:15 we decided they had left without us or cancelled the tour with no warning. Went to have a drink and had just ordered when the phone rang. They had been waiting for us for 15 minutes and had given up and gone to the first stop. They were going to be there for at least 30 minutes and told us they would wait. Sure enough, we caught up with them. Actually the tour began at 7:30, my mistake.
The tour guide, Martine was quite gracious as were the others on the tour. There were 8 of us in all, 4 from the UK and 2 from Berlin.
Martine has a great sense of humor and we laughed, ate and drank for longer than the tour allowed. It was great fun and I recommend it. Don't plan on dinner after because you will be full!
