We got off the cruise ship in Naxos and made our way to Taormina on the bus which took about 25 minutes or so. The Corso Umberto is lined with designer shops, gelato shops and gift shops. Worth paying a short visit to the various churches that line the street and a little way along there is a wonderful opportunity... More

This is the main thoroughfare in Taormina and gets very congested, especially at night when local families,cruise ship passengers and everyone else has a very slow walk(out of necessity), through the long street. But it is a must do in Taormina. Get a bit dressed up,be prepared to take your time and take in the Sicilian ambience.Stop at the Wunderbar,... More

If you come to Taormina, more than likely you will end up here as there is only one main drag to this beautiful town on top of a mountain. From genius gelato at O'Sciality, my fave restos here Tischi Toschi and Malvasia, to shopping for antiques, clothing, D&G, Sicilian cookies, amazing scenery, this main drag in Taormina is where all...

This is the main thoroughfare of Taormina. The must do thing is to walk its length in the evening but it can get very busy. The shops are mostly designer but a fair spattering of gelato, bakery and cafe stops.
