    Delightful square , which attracts people of all ages. Beautiful views towards Etna and the coast. There is often live music, close to restaurants on the edge of the square. Well worth stopping a while.

    This is Your Spot for Saturday Night
    Piazza IX Aprile is a great spot to visit mid day with panoramic views, baroque churches, and shops, but it really comes alive after dark. We headed down after dinner on Saturday night. We grabbed a cocktail at the Wunderbar and listened to traditional Sicilian music and watched a joyful, colorful parade of locals and tourist. Festa!

What a wonderful plaza. Make sure to look out over the ocean for the vistas and down the coast in order to see Mt Etna. Sit a spell and watch the world go by in this classic plaza.

Very crowded but still my favorite spot in Taormina! Don’t miss it. It is at the end of the Main Street - which is long and pretty (also very crowded).

This square has it all--incredible vistas of the Mediterranean, Mt Etna and the surrounding hillsides. It has a beautiful church, a Roman arched gate and is the terminus of the main street of Taormina the Corso Umberto.

This main square is located in the middle of the Corso Umberto I. The name of the square refers to a historical event in 1860. We walked around and visited the old churches: San Giorgio and San Giuseppe. We took photos of the clock tower (Torre dell’ Orologio). My favourite place was the panoramic terrace of piazza. The sea and the smoking Mount Etna is fantastic. You can enjoy chilled white vine and nibbles at the tables of Caffe Wunderbar.

After mass on April 9, 1860 in Taormina, a rumor began circulating that Garibaldi had arrived in Marsala and the revolt against the Bourbon dynasty was to begin; liberation was on the horizon. Our guide explained to us that on Sundays (even in 1860) people were allowed to worship therefore it was the day everyone would be congregating in the square after mass.

It was on this day that the square changed from Piazza Saint Agostino to Piazza IX April. This is the most beautiful square in Taormina and sits between the two town gates; the deconsecrated church of the church of Saint Augustine (big pink structure) sits on the edge of the checkerboard pattered square.

Although Garibaldi did not make an appearance on the 9th of April, he did arrive on May 9th at Marsala.

Best place to spot the coastline at the feet of Taormina and with the silhouette of Mount Etna on one side. Caffe Wunderbar is here and with a bit of luck a celebrity can be seen as it is a place where the jet set meets
