The tourist office is in the Palazzo Corvaja, Piazza Santa Caterina (tel. 0942-23243); it's open Monday to Saturday 8:30am to 2pm and 4 to 7pm. Here you can get a free map, hotel listings, bus and rail timetables, and a schedule of summer cultural events staged at the Greek Amphitheater and during the Taormina Film Festival.
The Taormina Film Festival (www.taorminafilmfest.it) takes place every year in June, when industry giants and cinema buffs from around the globe convene here to view national and international works. The Teatro Greco has a rich summer program with local and well-known international artists performing here, usually their only stop in Italy.
