Lively street full of shops, bars and restaurants. Excellent for people watching. Beautiful buildings and feels safe to wander at night. The view from the main piazza at night is breathtaking.

Everyone congregates here,locals and tourists alike. Upmarket shops, restaurants, ice-cream parlours etc. Walk up to Piazza 1X Aprile and look at the view!, calling at the lovely churches and the Greek amphitheater on the way, go off the main street for a better deal for food tho!

Loads of shops, restaurants and bars with great views at either end of the street. On a Friday and Saturday night it gets so busy, but there really is a nice atmosphere with a real buzz. A must-see if you visit Taormina.

Enjoy the Italian Ice Cream and Cannoli whilst walking at leisure in Corso Umberto. You will also walk by some entertainment with live music anywhere unexpected. You can also shop although some shops are very expensive but bargains can be found also.
