Erroneamente viene riportato come Duomo di Taormina la chiesa di S. Caterina, mentre la vera Cattedrale, intitolata a S. Nicolò di Bari, non è nemmeno recensita.

Taormina is a lovely town and it's best just to wander the side streets, plenty of shopping and then you head to a little piazza with the Cattedrale. Nice just to pop in and take a break from the warmth.
