There is interesting history here about the first queen of Italy who ruled briefly from Taormina and there is also an excellent display of marionettes and a beautiful carriage in the tourist office which is housed in the lower level of the Palazzo.

You can come in here on your way round Taormina. It’s just next to the church on the Corso. It’s historical but there’s not really much to see although there was an art exhibition on when we visited. You’ll likely be passing by anyway so worth a look!

The oldest part of the palace located at the beginning of Corso Umberto was built in the 10th century under Arab’s as a defending fortress of the city. It was extended in the 14th century in mixed style with Arabic tower, Norman central hall and Gothic windows. The name comes from the Corvaja family, one of the most noble families of the city who owned the place for almost five hundred years.

This place is on the regular tourist route and you won't have to go out of your way to see it. If you walk up the Corso you will come across it.
