Wonderful 3/4 mile street of shops, restaurants, and people watching. No shortage of ceramics, linens, gelato, and pizzerias. Happy place to visit.

at last a flat street in the town! great shops and restaurants and lovely atmosphere. Each and every eating establishmenet looks inviting, hard to choose. Some designer shops and some souvenir shops but nothing tacky so far. Hope it doesn't change.

The Corso Umberto is the main street of Taormina and full of shops, restaurants and bars. On both sides an ancient gate is situated and brings history to life. It’s impossible to visit Taormina without visiting the Corso Umberto.

Walking around and just enjoying myself with the people and the sights. A nice stroll, sit down at a restaurant and gave a drink and just people watch.
