Our cruise ship landed in Messina & we took a bus tour from Messina to Taormina. Quaint little town, lots of shops selling pottery & the usual trash & trinket. Nice little square with street musicians playing. If you walk to the end of the street, there's a Greek Theater. There are a couple of churches. We stopped & bought 2 canolis & it was the best I've ever had. Better than the one I had in Little Italy, NY. If you go there, you must you must try one.

Wow I did a lot of window shopping first but bought some beautiful Sicilian earrings for myself and Xmas presents & in two weeks we did the walk most days and still enjoyed the shops, restaurants and bars.

Nice pedestrian street, mainly crowded as it is touristic place.
Numerous shops, cafes, restaurants are located in the street.
Great for walking and look around :)

It could get quite crowded, but it's a fascinating stroll, and one which we took several times during our stay. Morning, afternoon or evening, the shops offered their wares, the ice cream beckoned, the architecture encouraged dawdling, often with music by itinerant musicians to accompany you. One of the best things about this street was the multitude of side turnings, often hardly more than passageways, all leading to somewhere lovely to eat!

It was a really lovely road to stroll up in the evening and look in all the shops and to decide where you were going to eat of an evening. The road was quite narrow then it would suddenly open out into a piazza(the largest one having a fantastic view). The only downside was the fact that it wasn't pedestrianised as cars and bikes could be a real nuisance.
