Tour Messina/>

<p>It was called the Cyclops Riviera after the Odyssey by Homer, a famous piece of poetry regarding the Trojan War. The Riviera, as with most coastlines you see when you visit Italy, is a very special sight and if you decide to take the recommendation of going <strong>with a private driver</strong>, you are sure to have plenty of time to enjoy the scenery along the way.</p>

<p>Along this router you will find the strikingly beautiful Cyclops islands which are the remarkable basaltic columns left behind by Mt Etna when it erupted many years ago. They stand up in the Ionian Sea and these huge chunks of lava attract thousands of visitors every year who take tours to the Cyclops Islands.</p>

<h3>Acireale</h3>
<img class= Private Driver Sicily Tour

Acireale is perched atop the cliffs which look down into the ocean and is the perfect place to get to know all about the Mythology behind the Cyclops mentioned above and the story of how he was blinded by Ulysses. Mt Etna really has left a mark on the landscape and as it towers overhead in the distance, it still has an overbearing effect on the scenery.

There is a great celebration each year in Acireale which attractions almost one million visitors. The carnival itself is a most colorful experience with a fantastic atmosphere, but it takes nothing away from a visit to Acireal with a private driver at any other time of year.

When you witness the rolling hillsides, covered in vineyards that extend across the mountains and down to the Islands, you will be glad not to have missed out on the Cyclops Riviera and Acireal.

Taormina Highlights Greek Theater, Naxos Garden and Bay


Italiano Limousine English Speaking Driver will meet you at your Cruise Terminal and start a wonderful personalized experience, Taormina the Pearl of Sicily and Mount Etna.

taormina

Spectacularly perched on the side of a mountain, Taormina is Sicily's most popular summer destination, a chic resort town beloved of holidaying high-rollers and visiting celebs. And while it is unashamedly touristy and has a main street lined with high-end designer shops, the town remains an achingly beautiful spot with gorgeous medieval churches, a stunning Greek theatre and sweeping views over the Gulf of Naxos and Mt Etna.

taormina

Founded in the 4th century BC, it enjoyed great prosperity under the Greek ruler Gelon II and later under the Romans, but fell into quiet obscurity after being conquered by the Normans in 1087. Its modern reincarnation as a tourist destination dates to the 18th century, when it was discovered by northern Europeans on the Grand Tour. Goethe was an early fan, as was DH Lawrence, who lived here between 1920 and 1923, and over the years it has seduced a whole army of writers, artists, aristocrats and royals.

Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards spread across the lower slopes of the mountain and the broad Plain of Catania to the south. Due to its history of recent activity and nearby population, Mount Etna has been designated a Decade Volcano by the United Nations. In June 2013, it was added to the list of UNESCO World.
