What You Can Expect

Taormina Food and Wine Walking Tour

Taste typical Sicilian wine on this tour

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.

This was a fun tour introducing you to some Italian dishes and plenty of wine. We had two plates of seafood including risotto which included samples of white wine, and a very generous meat and cheese plate at a different restaurant which included samples of red wine, then finally we were off to a different restaurant for samples of desserts as well as almond wine, limoncello, and one other dessert wine. Alfreddo was our guide and he was very friendly and informative.

This tour was great! We did it on our first night in Taormina, so it was a good way for us to explore and learn more about the city. Alfredo was an excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable and entertaining. The restaurants he took us to were great - plenty of delicious food and wine throughout the tour. And it was an ideal size tour group. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Our small and friendly group comprised three Americans, two Irish, two English and a Brazilian. We visited three locations and sampled a wide selection of Sicilian food and more than adequate quantities of the island's alcoholic products. Highly enjoyable and convivial.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, and Alfredo, our guide, was fabulous. We started our vacation in Taormina by taking this walking tour the first night, and it was a great way to orient ourselves to the town. We were offered a very nice assortment of food and drink, and had the opportunity to try some new dishes. Excellent value for the price! Our group was about 8 people, and that was perfect for socializing. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend!

The food tour was delicious! There was so much different food and lots of different wine to try, you definitely eat a full dinner by the end of the tour - so don't eat before hand. The guide was very knowledgeable about the different traditional dishes and local wines.
We went to 3 different restaurants, from a trattoria, to an enoteca and finished off at a pasticeri bar with limoncello and almond wine.
Lots of fun with a good group of people, highly recommended!
