This is tucked away behind a church, just up from the Tourist Info centre. Its free and really interesting to look round.

Plenty of these scattered all over Italia, I suggest you just glance at it as you walk past towards something more interesting.

..but I don't think it's much better during the day... It's off the spine of Taormina, corso Umberto primo and we found it only because one night, coming back from dinner, we wanted to avoid corso Umberto and found it. Needs highlighting.
