Really fun street to stroll down. Did it 3 or 4 times and never got tired of it. Full of cute shops and some nice bars to have a drink.

Main avenue in Taormina, with very good architectural examples. Plenty of souvenir shops and places to eat.

Charming town
Sep 2020 • Couples
Spent a week in Taormina and just couldn't get enough of it. The main street (Corso Umberto) is lovely and full of restaurants, bars and shops but don't stop there. I recommend exploring the smaller streets off the main one as you can find some real gems there too.

Bustling vibrant Main Street
Sep 2020
Carson Umberto is a riot of quirky, fashionable, traditional, and very Sicilian shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants. During our stay in Taormina we walked the length of it at least a couple of times a day as there are many side streets leading off it to explore. During these COVID times we were quite comfortable even though there were still many people on the move here - I would recommend wearing your face mask in the narrower areas to be on the safe side. The architecture is wonderful and the buildings impressive. Make sure you walk the full length from Porta Messina to Porta Catania the appreciate everything and experience the wonderful view over Gardini Naxos.

Perfect passagiata
Aug 2020 • Couples
If there’s a better street in Italy for an evening passagiata then I’ve yet to find it. Full of life, colour and gelato topped off with a stunning view of Mount Etna. Walk it both ways every evening.

Main street through the town - very lively!
Sep 2019
Running from Porta Messina to Porta Catania, this lively street is the main thoroughfare through the town - it is pedestrianised so it's a lovely place to wander along. It can get quite busy in the middle of the day but early on and later in the day it's much quieter. Lined with shops, restaurants, cafes and churches and with lots of little streets leading from it it is really picturesque.

Crowded in summer
Aug 2020
We went in summer 2020
So at the north you will find Porta Messina and at the south Porta Catania.
You will be walking through the Corso and see many restaurant, bars, shops and buildings from different eras, like gothic, Arabic, Norman, and Baroque.
From there you can get to the ancient Teatro and the Roman terms, also you will see palaces and churches along the Corso, if you walk to porta Messina you will get to the duomo, with a nice fountain, if you keep walking in piazza Aprile you will get a panoramic views
It gets really crowded every day as it visited by travellers from all over the world.
