One of the more important buildings in Taormina is the Palazzo Corvaja, dating to the fifteenth century, but converted from an earlier Arab tower. The facade is unadorned except for the crenellation at the top and the black lava and limestone reliefs. Double windows with...More

I saw several posters in Taormina advertising an exhibition of Picasso's work in this museum and thought, this should be worth a visit. Little did I know what a disappointment and rip-off this would actually turn out to be. Sure, the Palazzo itself is very...More

This is a main junction on Corso Umberto. There are many cafes. The church in the square seems to host many weddings where you can see a display of Italian fashion and watch the bride arrive.

Seems like a very nice historic building judging from the outside. Inside there are some galleries/exhibitions, but since it does not interest me much, I didn't care to pay the entrance fee. Part of the building houses Taormina's tourist information.

Probably the most pure medieval-looking building in Taormina. Easy to find, since it's the first major building you'll encounter when entering through Porta Messina.

Overpriced, it was a bit boring compared to other places in Sicily. If you are short on time, you can skip it and not feel cheated. If you have the time, and see it as it is filled with history.

This building is partly occupied by the Tourist Board and partly for exhibitions. Located on the main street (Corso Umberto I) by a church. It was a stoney Palace in its heyday. Small but interesting historical building. It is a popular landmark in Taormina. I...More

Very interesting building outside and some interest inside. Now houses the tourist information office. Well worth a look as you pass by. Not a lot to see but still interesting and well preserved

Near the Odeon, which is on the other side of the street, this Building, dating from the twentieth century, is now the headquarters of the Tourist Office, and then an almost obligatory destination for tourists wishing to discover Taormina. The first floor is used for...More

No doubt that the puppets are a work of art and are probably first-class puppets, BUT the display was small and unless you a puppet or art enthusiast, of which I am not, this display is a waste of time and money, and not worth...More
