Corso Umberto is the main shopping street in Taormina, lined with high end shops, souvenir stores, gelaterias, restaurants, etc. Best seen late afternoon or evening when the cruise ship visitors have departed and it's a little less crowded. We saw Rick Steves and his two...More

A lovely walk along the main thoroughfare of Taormina. Lots of high end Italian shops selling extensive fashion wear as well as cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops. Many people walk along this road in order to access the amphitheater. Walk here early morning or after...More

Endless blocks of shops selling basically the same items geared to tourists at inflated prices and hordes of people - not a great experience.

Hoards of tourists day and night, bombarded with one tacky and funky souvenir shop after another. Mediocre tourist restaurants. Only the views are special. We could have skipped Taormina

Filled with shops and restaurants for everyone. You can't get enough gelato. The pottery shops are filled with authentic goods but watch for made in China items.
