Nice square

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

Beautiful views although can be crowded and hard to take a phote. Try visiting by day and night. Lots of restaurants around, often buzzing with live music.

Everything has been said about this spot, easy to find and of course fabulous views over the balustrade, you will probably get asked to take someone's photo as I did but I was glad to oblige and in these strange times of paranoia it was good to speak to another human being. It was quiet with just a handful of people every time we visited but not surprising this year, otherwise i am sure it's heaving. Both day and night there is a peaceful atmosphere. You can sit around the side of the Duomo in the shade because it gets super hot. There's also a cool gelateria opposite selling the best ice cream in the world, what's not to like?

Pretty square with fabulous views
Sep. 2019
Beautiful square bordered with churches and cafes with lovely trees and artists painting local scenes - we bought a beautiful watercolour to bring home with us. Standing by the railings at the front, there are fabulous views over the bay. The square is nice in the daytime but it comes to life at night when everything is lit up and it is full of people. At the edge of the square is a lovely cafe/bar - Caffe Wunderbar - a lovely place to sit for a drink and listen to live music at night. Definitely worth a visit to the square and the church of San Giuseppe.

Great place to relax and take in the incredible views--or study the architecture
May 2019
As we explored the charming medieval village of Taormina, we passed through a second ancient gate, into the older Greek section of the town, and into a lovely open square. Examples of ancient architecture abound—be sure to see the church and the library. Views to the sea and Mt Aetna from here are spectacular, and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy s bite to eat or a coffee—or just relax on one of the benches!

Lovely atmosphere

Lovely views and atmosphere. And on a good day you can see Etna. Do visit the library and church, and enjoy the locals hanging out.
