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...More

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.

This is a main junction on Corso Umberto. There are many cafes. The church in the square seems to host many weddings where you can see a display of Italian fashion and watch the bride arrive.

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.

Overpriced, it was a bit boring compared to other places in Sicily. If you are short on time, you can skip it and not feel cheated. If you have the time, and see it as it is filled with history.
