How to Spend 2 Days in Taormina
With two days in Taormina, you can hit the city’s highlights and take in Mount Etna as well. Visit the Greek theater, sail along the scenic coast, learn about local wine, and dip into the Sicilian culinary scene. Here are a few ways to spend 48 hours in Taormina. 

Day 1: Tours and Wine Tastings
Morning: Begin your visit with an introductory tour. Choose a Segway tour that covers ground in the hilltop town quickly, a walking tour with a visit to the Greek Theater, or a ride on the hop-on hop-off bus for a city overview. 

Afternoon: See Taormina from a different perspective this afternoon. Opt for a boat ride that cruises along the coastline with views of Isola Bella, or splurge on a helicopter journey that offers a glimpse of Mount Etna, including the volcano’s crater. 

Night: This evening, taste Sicilian wines and traditional snacks during a food-focused walking tour led by a local guide. Travelers with an interest in music may also want to check out evening tours that combine Italian opera with wine-tasting opportunities.

Day 2: Coastal Explorations and Cooking Classes
Morning: Get active this morning and explore the coastline on a snorkeling tour or a fishing tour at Isola Bella. Private tours are also available for visitors seeking a more intimate fishing, snorkeling, or boating experience.

Afternoon: Bring your appetite to a local cooking class, and get to know Sicily’s culinary history. Opt for a pizza-making class to learn the art of the Sicilian pizza crust, or choose a tour that begins with a visit to the market to pick up fresh ingredients and concludes with a southern Italian feast. 

Night: Continue the culinary theme this evening by joining an Italian chef for dinner in his home. Skip the bustle of a restaurant and enjoy an intimate, multicourse meal with wine on a terrace. Alternatively, set out to see Mount Etna at sunset with an evening tour departing from Taormina.
