From any road you arrive in Taormina to start the tour around the city, the parking lot where you should stop is Porta Catania. At the exit of it you will take a flight of stairs and you will find yourself in Piazza S. Antonio where Porta Catania (5) is located, which was one of the medieval accesses to the city.
From here begins Corso Umberto, the main pedestrian street of the ancient and modern city, along which you will find the most important tourist attractions to visit. Beyond the large arch, on the right you will find the Palazzo Duchi di S. Stefano (4) of Arab-Norman origin but with a Gothic finish. The palace is located in the old Jewish quarter.
Continuing along the Corso: on the right the Piazza del Duomo with the Four fountains and the Cathedral (10) of medieval origin dedicated to St. Nicholas of Bari. Going forward on the left, before the Clock Tower, the staircase that leads to the Church of Varò (12) whose façade seems austere but the interior is full of laces that make the atmosphere baroque.
