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.

We were traveling around Sicily Island for some weeks in Summer 2014 and this was for sure one of my best experiences in shopping and cute little bars and restaurants. It was very crowded and hot but you dont actually care since it is a very unique place.

Obviously crowded but that is part of the fun. Let yourself wander and discover off the main path. You'll find everything from designer Italian shops to cute little boutiques, amazing coffee and wine shops, leather goods, gelato, etc. We took a walk here every night after dinner and always found something new.
