Bar Turrisi, Piazza Duomo 98030 Castelmola (ME) (any taxi driver in Taormina will know of Bar Turrisi), ☎ 094228181 (firstname.lastname@example.org), . This bar has an interesting theme: Penises. It is a penis-themed bar. Certainly a must see, not just for the novelty, but Castelmola is also a beautiful town just out of Taormina. The bar is also spectacular. Not for a family with immature children or parents with bad senses of humor.
