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.

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

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
