Meravigliosa piazza, piccola ma molto ben curata e tenuta. Illuminata di sera è veramente spettacolare. more »Wonderful square, small but very well cared for and tight. Illuminated in the evening is truly spectacular.
Beautiful town perched on the top of a hill with stunning views of the coast. Narrow, mostly pedestrianised streets are lines with shops. It’s definitely touristy as you would expect but in a refined rather than tacky way. Venture off the beaten track into side streets to find plenty of quaint little bars and eateries.
Taormina is easily the most beautiful city in Sicily. If you want to visit Taormina by car tho, you'll likely need to wake up soon and get to the city centre before 10am, as there are not many parking spots in the city centre. There are discounts for EU citizens younger than 26 years on local tourist attractions.
