Taormina is famous for its breathtaking views and its charming streets which have been immortalized throughout the years in marvelous photos showing famous film stars living the real dolce vita.
Get ready to relive that time in an unforgettable and stylish experience with our vintage Vespas.
Accompanied by our drivers dressed in vintage garb, you will travel the characteristic back roads of the historical centre. This exceptional way of seeing Taormina means that you can truly admire Sicily’s beauty. Whizzing around Taormina on our vintage Vespa will transport you into the carefree life of a young Sicilian whilst at the same time leaving you with the more adult appreciation of the spectacular views that the town offers from its elevated position.
With the wind blowing in your hair you will truly experience the emotion of being on two wheels. Vespas are to this day the most common form of transportation used by the local people to get around in their daily lives, and they themselves remain fascinated by their beauty. Get ready to take photos, have them taken of you, and cause a hype!
Having left the historical centre of Taormina you will then navigate the beautifully panoramic road leading up to Castelmola – one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy. The beauty of the views, the slow pace and the charm of a little town, the small souvenir shops, and the typical welcoming Sicilian atmosphere are just some of the elements that characterize our Taormina–Castelmola Vintage Vespa Tour.
When we arrive you will try the excellent local almond wine. Produced with locally selected almonds and orange essence, it will be offered to you as a welcome gift before a refreshing aperitivo. Both will be served in a local bar that was founded in the 1700’s by monks who used it as a tavern. Today it remains one of the most traditional bars of the town.
As if that’s not enough, you finish the tour off with a brief stop off at the sanctuary of the Madonna della Rocca – saint co-protector of Taormina. This sanctuary has an incredible panoramic terrace for an unforgettable photo that will be the perfect ending to a perfectly … vintage tour!
