This is a pretty piazza roughly half way along Corso Umberto, and you're bound to stop and look at the view along the coast as you stroll along the Corso. Make sure you do, because the views are marvellous.

It's absoletuly necessary to go there, at least one time once in Taormina. It's the real heart of the city. So cosy, so tiny, it seems that the time has stopped there. We strongly recommend to go there at 6 pm or so, just to...More
