    A wonderful site high in Taormina. Great views and an excellent opportunity to see a Greco/Roman theatre.

    Yes its a typical tourist area of shops, but it's lovely, clean, and gives your that European quaint shopping experience. It's also a nice area if you have teenagers that might want to explore on their own because its not huge and easy meeting spots. We were there early before massive crowds, but I can imagine it gets extremely crowded. We didn't shop, but just strolled the streets, ate the food, and took in the beautiful buildings.

    I was curious to go to the ocean so took the cable car down to the beach. It was completely filled with lounge chairs so really not much area to walk around and explore.
    Just okay

    A beautiful garden which was built by an Englishwoman with a great mix of facilities.
    It has some lovely terraces with lovely views over the sea and Taormina together with Mount Etna in the distance.
    It also has a series of follies, some aviaries (2 parrots was all we spotted la children's playground and some outdoor exercise areas. There are plenty of benches and at the far end some stones that look good for a picnic. Some of the buildings were fenced off and there are no toilets within the park.
    We went in late May about 11.00 and it was quite quiet.

    This Piazza has a great view of the ocean and places to listen to live music while getting a coffee. Very Nice

    Very efficient. Three euros each way, or ten euros for a day ticket. But beware the bottom level still leaves around 100 steps down to the beach, which is quite a trek coming back. There are ramps for wheelchairs/pushchairs but they look mighty steep.

    A beautiful little church at Madonna della Rocco, stunning interior with the rock roof. Great views of Etna. Accessible by road or a walk up the 540 steps with great views en-route! Worth a visit!

    This gate marks the entrance to the old town. The most beautiful buildings are located along this street.

    Nothing really to write home about compared to a lot of other moms in the world and on Italy, quite bland inside actually but f you are there anyway it does not hurt to have a view.

    This is the large Baroque Church that sits on Piazza IX Aprile. It is a very busy wedding location on the weekends.

    Beautiful paintings and frescos. The detail in the stucco walls is exceptional.

    Some important points:
    - not all trains 'go the distance' make sure you're on one that goes all the way to Riposto - some stop at Randazzo or Adrano. Follow-on trains can be some time
    - Sometimes there are track works that prevent trains from 'going the distance'
    - if it's overcast, you probably won't see much of Etna
    With these qualifications, it was a fun experience and is only a few Euros.

    We spent a few hours soaking up the sun here. There is a car service that drops you off and picks you up - total cost 9euro. The cafe is pretty basic but what you'd expect at a beach cafe. Tip - don't buy the cocktails - they taste like rocket fuel.

    Wonderful little church with some unusual pillars inside. It is small but oozes character and history. It only takes a few minutes to look around it and certainly worth visiting.

    Very nice beach, though it is a pebbles beach. Public and private areas. To access the island, you need to pay.

    There are 2 gates at each end of Corso Umberto: the Porta Messina and Porta Catania. They used to guard the city.
