Our favourite square where we went for drinks every night and watched the street performers. Noisy and lots of fun with people walking up and down on their evening stroll. Sit in Mocambo Bar for the best people-watching spot. Stunning view down to the sea...More

A lovely little square in the middle of Taormina that's full of life with live music and plenty of bars and restaurants. The main attraction is a beautiful high-rise clifftop view of the coast.

So much charm! There were musicians playing, the smell of Italian food, and spectacular views. We had a too short visit but enjoyed every minute. A highlight of our multi-country trip.
