Such a beautiful street to stroll down, busy but relaxed. Gorgeous little side streets to gaze down. There are lots of beautiful places for amazing photo opportunities. Can't wait to go back.

Busy and unbelievably hectic. You only need to carry out little diversions off it to find great restaurants

My son and I went walking through Corso Umberto on our stay in Taormina at least three times. He's 21 and not into shopping but didn't seem to mind and that was good for me.

If you are in the neighborhood you really have to visit this cozy town. The drive towards the town is beautiful because of the rocks in the water.

You cannot go to Taormina and not visit the Corso Umberto. We were lucky enough to get a hotel on the road. There is so much going on here, shops, cafes, gelatos, bars, street performers and gifts. It's a great place to go day or night, we never got bored of a stroll along here

Lovely atmosphere in the evening, and really pretty in the day. Lots of interesting shops and not too much tourist tat! Lots of nice restaurants and overall a great place to be based around.
