Try Bam Bar for a fantastic range of ice creams and granitas. Loved the regular 'princess' seated at the next table with her pearl necklace!

Amazing granita and reasonable price. Make sure you visit this bar if you are in Taormina! We loved the chocolate and strawberry flavours.

There are a lot tourist traps in Thaormia, but this is the real deal. For example, glass of Prosecco, €3, compared with €6 in piazza duomo. The granite was delicious, services was chearful and you can watch the world go by.

First experience the morning grainte with brioche, then the late morning granite with a second granite to follow in different flavours (the melon and lemon granites in one glass are magnificent), a post-lunch-time granite is the best prelude to an evening granite or two, a glass of Aperol...
