I visited this place 3 years ago. There are so many things you can do here. You can pick a restaurant from hundred of restaurants. You can sit don and listen to the local music. You can visit duomo, which very beautiful. I only give this place 4 because if you come here on the weekend there is quiet crowded

There is a street in every city where tourists can visit stores and shops - this called Váci street in Budapest, Corso Umberto in Taormina. This is the longest street in Taormina and has the most to offer to tourists. It has a piazza where you have a beautiful view of Taormina and Isola Bella.

The Corso Umberto experience is not to be missed with a mixture of beautiful designer shops, tourist shops, ice cream, plenty of places to eat to suit everyone's pocket, and new to us this time, more ice cream parlours. Unfortunately there are some women with small children begging, seemingly forcing the children to breast feed which we saw on many... More

Corso Umberto has everything, nice shops, great restaurants and bars/cafes, churches, piazzas with great views, you name it. Very attractive and quite long (about 10 blocks) so you can spend hours walking, having a gelato or a coffee and watching the surroundings.

Corso Umberto is full of beautiful buildings, some medieval, housing great jewellery, clothing and ceramic stores. It is a pleasure to browse in such a beautiful environment. Prices can be quite high though as it is a tourist trap. Don't miss it.
