This square is very central to both restaurants and the retail area of the town, is a good place for meeting people and there are several good restaurants in the side alleys running of the main thoroughfare.

As a part of the Aprile square the Chiesa di San Guiseppe has everything a building on Sicily could have in your imagination. The colour of the stones, the rooftop finishes, everything. Great building, both from the inside aswell as the outside.

This church is also located at the main street in taormina. You van combine shopping, sight seeing and going out with a visit to this beautiful church. But please consider, it is a holy place. Act and Dress accordingly.

Near our beautiful hotel the Metropole. Lots of attractions with occasional music by local musicians whilst we sat and enjoyed a drink at the local bar watching all that was going on.
