One of Joe Banana Limos English speaking drivers will meet you at the gangway of your cruise in the port of Messina, holding a sign with your name on it. Then your memorable tour of two of the most beautiful places in Sicily "Taormina and Mount Etna", will begin.
Mount Etna is one of the world's most active volcanos, majestic and fascinating, it was considered by the Ancient Greeks to be the realm of Vulcan,  God of fire. Unpredictable and ever-changing, this mountain rises well over 6500 feet above sea level, making it the highest mountain in Europe after the Alps.
You will pass through the town of Giarre and then through the village of Zafferana before arriving at the Crater named Silvestri which is about 6000 ft above sea level. The strange, lunar landscape is well worth the stop for some fascinating photos during your tour.  
Right after this visit you will drive to the town of Taormina, truly one of the most beautiful places in Sicily.
This charming and picturesque town has been a world famous resort since the end of the 19th century.  Known for its unspoiled natural beauty and climate as well as its excellent hospitality, the inhabitants have managed to preserve their local culture and ancient history while providing efficient modern organization. Enjoy the outdoor cafès and maybe a delicious lunch tasting some of the local specialties.
Here you will tour the ancient theater built by the Greeks during the 3rd century BC, but later changed into an amphitheatre by the Romans. From here you can see a magnificent view of the bay of Naxos and Mount Etna, so be ready to take out your cameras again!  
At this point, your driver will bring you to the Palazzo Corvaia, built in the 14th and 15th centuries, represents several different architectural styles - Arab, Gothic, and Norman. Finally you will admire the ruins of a small Roman theatre, which is located just behind the nearby church.  
After some time at leisure your driver will take you back to Messina port, where your tour will end.
