It’s a nice piazza, but it’s nothing special. There are a few places to eat and drink, but you definitely pay a higher price. Good for people watching though!

You can’t really miss this piazza when you visit Taormina. It is right in the center of the main strip. Lovely tiled floors, very crowded but great views. The cafes around the piazza charge exorbitant prices
