  • A tower reconstructed at the behest of the village of Taormina and placed on the side of Piazza IX Aprile with a clock graphic. Since it is used to identify it as the clock tower and already not Torre di Mezzo. Not very significant.

  • The clock tower stands just in the middle of Corso Umberto, its often called Porta di Mezzo (Middle gate) because it has an arch, decorated in much the same way as other city gate in Taormina (Messina and Catania). So no two and three gates.

  • The "Torre Dell ' orologio e Porta di mezzo" is a gateway to the Western suburb of Taormina. The Tower has pinnacles and a clock. A mosaic of the Madonna in the arch especially liked. The tower is located in the Centre of the city, opposite to the Cathedral and today is part of the pedestrian zone in main street "Corso Umberto" Taormina. We were In April and September on the spot. In the season abound on the road from tourists. I felt this but not as annoying. From the Cathedral Square, it also has a wonderful view to the Mediterranean Sea, you can see the tower with the beautiful mosaic then ever.

Where to stay in Taormina

Perched on the side of a mountain, Taormina offers lodging options that range from family-run guesthouses and traditional B&Bs, to luxury hotels and private seaside villas. Staying close to the city center allows you to enjoy a broad selection of excellent restaurants and cafes, where you can experience the flavors of Sicily's local cuisine.
