Photographer's Note

To get a picture of this charming square in the center of Taormina without any tourists you have to get up with the sun.
The life of the town centres around this square which is situated in the middle of the mainstreet, Corso Umberto.
Piazza IX Aprile, with its characteristic black and white paving, affords a breathtaking view of the azure Ionian Sea and of the Mount Etna.
On the other side of the square stands the former Gothic St. Augustine's Church and the Seventeenth Century Church of St. Joseph overlooks the piazza from the top of a flight of steps.
The square also leads to the oldest part of Taormina through the Porta Di Mezzo upon which stands the Clock Tower.
