I guess in Italy we are used to luxury brand shops but this street doesn't have any for the ladies. There was a Zenga, Canali and Paul and Shark. Great street to wander down. Worth a visit even if pricey.

Corso Umberto, it is the road that crosses entirely Taormina in the upper part, it starts and ends in correspondence of the two arcs (gates), which delimit the entry and the exit from the town. A long way, at the same time in my personal opinion one of the most famous and characteristics of the whole Sicily.
Very nice during the day, but if you have the opportunity to stroll along the best time it is during the evening, the atmosphere is romantic and assure you that you will never forget this place.
Here a multitude of shops, chic restaurants, lots of ice cream shops, souvenir, and the fantastic architecture that distinguishes it, the right lights and the fantastic presence of the central square with the stunning views of the coastline and Mount Etna.

A lively area for shopping and people watching. Something for everyone. Also nice to walk it very early in the morning before all the throngs arrive.

Nice long pedestrian shopping street with a nice mix of shops catering to every taste and budget. During the day, the cruise ships and other tour operators fill these streets with busloads of their guests. At night, the tourists and locals alike stroll the street for the nightly passeggiata. Many restaurants and bars line the squares and several side streets. The restaurants on the main square would benefit from dropping the who-can-play-the-loudest-contest between their respective entertainers.
