You don't have to make a separate trip to view this church. Its right on the main street called Corso Umberto where all the action is. The church is small and you could visit this place in 5 minutes.

Visit the place while you are making your evening walk as there is not much to do in Taormina. It is better to visit after dark and you will enjoy this small church with some lovely paintings.
