We love all the little narrow side streets in this area. Pavone Francesco is one of my favourites, lined up and down with wonderful paintings and some lovely restaurants.

As one of Taormina’s many streets, the Pavone Francesco offers lots to see. Not only because it’s filled with paintings from a nearby gallery.

Cosy and narrow Street with Beautiful View and Pictures around the stairs. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying yourself

This is one of a number of the quieter streets which lead off the main tourist routes and offer a haven of calm, as well as views of lovely gardens behind closed gates, discreet art galleries and smaller restaurants

Taormina is quite unique because of numerous little side streets leading from Corso Umberto, but this one is definately in the top 5 because of nice artworks displayed.

A nice little alleyway with drawings and paintings on the ground and some restaurants that keep it lively. A corner of Taormina that is worth a look.
