Did a tour last year & booked the day before while staying at GiardiniNaxos (if you wish check my Sicily page). I'm sure that there will be many places in Taormina offering similar.

Hi Paula,

You should see the top if you’re going to climb Etna  ! We did it last September and we enjoy every second of it. We stayed in Letojanni in a B&B ( Casa Famiani at http://www.casafamiani.it/uk/home.shtm ) close to the beach, and the owner explained us how to reach Etna by car. But you also have the possibility to go by bus. In both cases you’ll reach a big parking and from there, for 45 euros’ you could go on the top and see everything as close you can get safely, with a guide who’s going to walk with you keeping you on the safe side.
In the other hand you could stay in Catania and let them pick you up with an off road car so that you’ll do everything on your own time.

Here you have some useful links:

Hi Paula,
I agree with the member who says you should go to the top. Awesome!!!!
Anyway, most hotel concierge desks in Taormina will happily book you on a tour
to Etna.

You will be able to book these easily when you are in Taormina. There is a fair bit of competition so be prepared to do a deal.

Travel Tips for Palermo

A small square "piazza" full of cars...

by kedi+

If I was working in Palermo municipality, I would never let those cars there...(My urban planner part is moving 8)) ) But Palermo is like this... Cars are everywhere, people unfortunately doesn't respect traffic rules...
In this piazza it wasn't forbidden to park, anyway that's a pity... 8/ But the problems of chaotic cities, as we all know...

You can get to Palermo by...

by marktbike

You can get to Palermo by airplane, landing in Punta Raisi airport. flights from quite all Italian airports and some major foreign ones (London, Bruxelles, Paris). Then take the train to Palermo Central Station or the bus to Piazza Politeama.
If you want to visit only the city (and not the surroundings) don't rent a car that will only be a problem for you in the chaotic traffic of the center. You can also reach the city by way of sea from Naples, Genoa, Livorno and Cagliari, in Sardinia.
Moving across the city you can use the orange buses that cover quite all the area, taking you as far as Mondello, the wonderful beach of Palermo. They're trying to give the city an underground, but the service is very poor by now, so prefer the surface. Taxis are rather cheap, but the traffic is often jammed, so consider walking as a good choice. If you want to visit the outskirts of Palermo and the surrounding towns, rent a car in one of the many agencies or you won't be able to reach your lodging after some nightlife! Best choice is a scooter. Park on the sidewalks if you don't obstruct the passage, policemen will tolerate it.

Cathedral

by kedi+

During the Norman domination, in 1184 the archbishop of Palermo Walter Offamilio started the construction of a splendid cathedral to replace the Muslim mosque with a Christian church.
Over the centuries the additions and restorations modified the original building: the most radical change was made by Ferdinando Fuga in 1771 and in 1809. He was an architect from Florence and gave to the interior of the church a neoclassical aspect.

Mount Pellegrino & Saint...

by piccolina

Mount Pellegrino & Saint Rosalie's Shrine
Mount Pellegrino, the 'Pilgrims' Mountain,' offers panoramic views of Palermo and the Sea but is most famous for the Sanctuary of Saint Rosalie, located near the summit along winding roads that traverse woods of typically Mediterranean stone pines. Venerated for centuries, this medieval saint is thought to have been of Norman ancestry, though in fact there exists little evidence to support that idea. She sought a hermit's life on Mount Pellegrino and many miracles were attributed to her. The feast of Saint Rosalie (Santa Rosalia), heavenly patroness of Palermo, is celebrated 13-15 July.

Weakend at Valture Club

by danrose

The Valture club is located near Pollina, about 75 Km east of Palermo.
The club is seatting on a cliff above the sea sore, with a wonderfull panorama of the sea and the golf down bellow. Thare are a lot of intertainment possibillities for all ages - from kids to old people.
A gymnastics room, swimming pool, waking and jogging passes, different ball games, many type of sailig boat etc. Also you can rent a car or you can join to orgenized tour. During my staying I visit at Pollina and Cefalu villeges - two achinat vileges started from the Greek period , the Romans and the Arabs. The first one on a cliff on the tope of a high mountain and the second on the coast = bouth are very intersting. Obviously I visit in Palermo - It is not a big deal = there are many Italian cities favorited then it.
And finally the food = in Valtur Clube one must foget his diet = the italien food is very tasty and good - and every thing is free. - I recomanded to thak a weakend over there.
For people that like to stay more is is recomanded to visit the Eolieos islands specially the Strobolly, The Etna - near Teormina and The acient city of Agrigento with its magnificent pecifass works
