We stayed right on the street in a apartment and it was the best experience. Close to everything and you could walk around with ease. This place was amazing.

No tack here. The shops are beautiful especially the craft shops. Can be very very busy and hot especially when the cruise ships are in town. Very atmospheric and family friendly. Street entertainment in the evenings. Loved Taormina

Lots of fun shops, not just tourist shops but wonderful clothes shops, antiques and food stores. Great buzz, very clean and pedestrianised.

Some wonderful shops but set amongst the prettiest of towns. A real buzz in the evening so a great place to stroll. Nice to shop and then stop for a drink or a bite to eat. Can’t miss it when visiting Taormina.

It is a walk we took for 6 days and we never tired of it. The crowds can be a little intense but it is much better in the evening when the sight seeing groups have left and the weather is perfect in the early...More

We stayed in a hotel just at the end of this street so we saw quite a lot of it. It's a great place to wander and window-shop and it has lots of steep paths and alleys leading up and down the hill. The only...More

Corso Umberto is the main street which runs the length of the old town of Taormina. It is a pedestrianised area (except for vehicles collecting rubbish), which is just as well, as it gets very congested when groups of tourists from a cruise liner come...More

Hello Magda, only just seen your question, so late replying. My wife and I spent a fantastic week in Taormina, which is a beautiful and vibrant place to stay. Thankfully it wasn't to busy so we had not trouble booking... More
