Description:
This gorgeous route leads from the cruise ship tender dock in Giardini Naxos along a lovely beach for three miles, then switchbacks up a mountain to the medieval town of Taormina. After passing through the crowded Corso Umberto I, the runner continues to the summit of the mountain, to the Saracen fortification high above the town, which offers amazing views of the Mediterranean. Be prepared to climb from sea level to 1,130 feet in elevation! The way back down is a breeze, via the Roman amphitheater. Be sure to hydrate in the dry air.
