There are lots of interesting, narrow side streets as you walk around Taormina and this is one of the most interesting ones. You will see the remains of an old, Roman wall, one of the oldest structures in the town.

You'll walk past this as you're going up and down the town. It's worth a look if your passing as its a good example of brilliant Roman construction, but don't go out of your way

It's now a peaceful garden down below more recent buildings. A nice getaway from the Taormina crowds!
