You can’t really miss this piazza when you visit Taormina. It is right in the center of the main strip. Lovely tiled floors, very crowded but great views. The cafes around the piazza charge exorbitant prices

A lovely piazza with a nice church and many eateries. The views across the coast and of Mt Etna are amazing. Was serenaded by two Italian's in traditional dress. People dancing to the music was a nice sight. A must visit.
