Just a square but actually a very interesting place to visit even if you have a rip off drink in one of the bars. It seems the centre of life in Taormina with buskers, photographers, weddings and plenty of beautiful people. There were even 2 drones flying around when we visited. The views are tremendous and you could linger here for a long time. You will come across this square if you walk along the main street.

What a super set of views from this piazza! You look down at the beautiful shoreline below Taormina and onto the countrysides of the surrounding villages, all surrounding the Bay of Naxos. The views are truly picturesque and spectacular! We only were there during the day, but I can imagine that the evening views would be at least as beautiful!

Early morning sunrise - spectacular. Mid-afternoon scenery - incredible. Evening/Night - best of all because of the views, ambiance and quiet.

Great views of the coastline from the railing.

Several restaurants and café’s, and two churches, plus the Torre Oralogio, make this area very attractive to tourists.

I would recommend you visit the square both in the day and during the night because each time of day offers a unique perspective. This is one of the most picturesque locations we visited in Sicily as you will discover by the multitude of humanity that gathers here. The entire square is a photographer's dream. I was blown away by the dramatic floor design of the square.

My only complaint about the place is that it would have been nice to have a few sitting areas here. Taormina is a nightmare of a place for those of us with bad knees and over 60. The cliff side location guarantees you that you will have to negotiate steep steps over and over again. There just are not enough rest spots for the feeble like me so I was sorely disappointed that I could not sit and enjoy this place more.

Do not miss this place if you want to get a Disney type photo op. It is simply beautiful.

Beautiful view overlooking the sea and the volcano of Etna. The square is always busy and full of life.

One of the main squares in Taormina, offering good views above the coast. Good place to eat and rest a bit.
