This place is very beautiful. You have a full view of the ocean as well as the beaches below, and the castle above. It's a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the place.

Great place for people watching and a view of Mt Etna (if you can see it). A few nice bars/restaurants located here too

One can only do so much shopping (my wife my disagree), but this was a pleasant spot to take a break and have a gelato.

Great square in Taormina, filled with lovely views all around. Quite touristic (but which place in Taormina isn’t) which makes it a steep priced bit of Sicily, but still worth a visit!!

A largish square with absolutely stunning views to the east and south. Unfortunately Etna was cloud covered but the coatline was gorgeous.

Loved the Piazza and the feeling is gaves you when you are there. Although full with tourists it give you a feeling of peace and tranquillity amd it makes you feel welcome. Very nice to visit.

A good stopping off/resting point as you stroll down the busy pedestrianised Corso Umberto. The clock tower is impressive.
