Early morning sunrise - spectacular. Mid-afternoon scenery - incredible. Evening/Night - best of all because of the views, ambiance and quiet.

Great views of the coastline and the mountians
Jun 2021
Great views of the coastline from the railing.

Several restaurants and café’s, and two churches, plus the Torre Oralogio, make this area very attractive to tourists.

Beautiful square and a great place to see the coastline
Jul 2021
I would recommend you visit the square both in the day and during the night because each time of day offers a unique perspective. This is one of the most picturesque locations we visited in Sicily as you will discover by the multitude of humanity that gathers here. The entire square is a photographer's dream. I was blown away by the dramatic floor design of the square.

My only complaint about the place is that it would have been nice to have a few sitting areas here. Taormina is a nightmare of a place for those of us with bad knees and over 60. The cliff side location guarantees you that you will have to negotiate steep steps over and over again. There just are not enough rest spots for the feeble like me so I was sorely disappointed that I could not sit and enjoy this place more.

Do not miss this place if you want to get a Disney type photo op. It is simply beautiful.

Beautiful view overlooking the sea and the volcano of Etna. The square is always busy and full of life.

Nice square
Sep 2020
One of the main squares in Taormina, offering good views above the coast. Good place to eat and rest a bit.

Stunning views

Beautiful views although can be crowded and hard to take a phote. Try visiting by day and night. Lots of restaurants around, often buzzing with live music.

Everything has been said about this spot, easy to find and of course fabulous views over the balustrade, you will probably get asked to take someone's photo as I did but I was glad to oblige and in these strange times of paranoia it was good to speak to another human being. It was quiet with just a handful of people every time we visited but not surprising this year, otherwise i am sure it's heaving. Both day and night there is a peaceful atmosphere. You can sit around the side of the Duomo in the shade because it gets super hot. There's also a cool gelateria opposite selling the best ice cream in the world, what's not to like?

Pretty square with fabulous views
Sep 2019
Beautiful square bordered with churches and cafes with lovely trees and artists painting local scenes - we bought a beautiful watercolour to bring home with us. Standing by the railings at the front, there are fabulous views over the bay. The square is nice in the daytime but it comes to life at night when everything is lit up and it is full of people. At the edge of the square is a lovely cafe/bar - Caffe Wunderbar - a lovely place to sit for a drink and listen to live music at night. Definitely worth a visit to the square and the church of San Giuseppe.
