Lovely street with beautiful vistas

Great way to spend a couple of hours, just strolling along this street taking in the ambience and maybe have a drink or meal at the many establishments along the way.

Corso Umberto is the main street of Taormina, full of all kinds of shops, from ice cream parlours to top end designer clothes & accessories.

Live music... More

The main street in Taormina and it is beautiful with interesting nooks and alleyways leading off it. it is the main thoroughfare and shopping area. Several churches are there and we saw several weddings and funerals. Great for people watching. Try the bar De Bastoni for drinks and nibbles. Great for people watching and excellent wine and food.

Corso Umberto has many nice shops, it makes you feel like you are in Milano. All the best Italian designers you can find there. The facades are beautiful, decorated with the local Sicilian ceramic. It is always nice to go for a stroll there.

Taormina is incredibly beautiful! And this place just complements it. Here you can have a expensive lunch, but also a cheap and nice one. Or just shopping...

Great restaurants & yummy cannoli and cake shops. There is a market every morning to buy fresh food which was a pleasant change. I also found a great hairdresser number 99 first floor
