Give me more Nara Camice

All the usual overpriced nonsense but there are one or two good shops. Thank goodness for Nara Camice, her Italian ladies wear is to die for!

what a fantastic place, loved it, the atmosphere at night is so different to the day, great place to sit at a cafe and watch the world go by. Lots of designer shops, some souvenir shops, cake and ice cream everywhere. Lots of little quaint side streets, with little cafe/bars with outside tables, its a one off place, not been... More

The street runs between the two town gates so provides a helpful context for walking around. Half way down you'll find the entrance to the ampitheatre which you'll definitely want to go to, so you have to battle with the expensive designer shops, tat souvenir shops, musicians, mopeds and tourists! By wandering the street you'll find the cathedral, the view... More

Been there on August 2014 with wife and kids, we booked an Hotel close to the Town to enjoy the sea but Tarmina was our main goal on this trip to Italy. Once you get to the upper old town you will find Corso Umberto, and that's main street...ou just have to walk around and you will find Taormina most... More

High end shopping on Corso Umberto. Lots of restaurants and cafes. During the winter many stores are closed so be prepared if traveling in winter that your choices are limited for food and gelato.

Just to walk Corso Umberto is a wonderful thing. Feel like an Italian, walk the streets, window shop, buy some gelati and sit around the piazza and people watch but dress well !!. When in Taormina do as the Taorminans do !!!

Corso Umberto is the very busy and tourist orientated main street of Taormina, which is lined with every shop, restaurant and bar you could imagine. Don't eat here as it is based on the tourist trade much better to get off themain street.

The atmosphere of walking on this little but main street in the city, where we can shop, eat and enjoy good scenic view - not to forget the cultural visit to many historical buildings around it.

Like all main streets in these old cities it has every shop known to man from designer brands to tourist junk shops. Restaurants everywhere and a nice hustle and bustle. Recommend that you choose restaurant carefully here as the better value and quality meals we found off the main tourist trail where they tend to not take advantage of you.
