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.

Corso Umberto is an experience. There are the expected shops, both high-end and chintzy. There is always a crowd and people watching is inevitable. But what really stands out is the color! So much Sicilian pottery in brilliant colors, some of it extraordinary, a dazzling...More

A very short walk with everything from Prada to kitsch to cafes to churches to views. One of our favorite street strolls in all Italy. Only drawback is its only a few blocks long.

You want coffee, icecream, clothes, jewellery, antiques, souvenirs? You'll find a shop along here that sells it. And at the end, you've got the piazza Belvedere and the wonderful views ( and public toilets ) As you walk along, be prepared to be tempted by...More

I don’t shop. But if you have to walk around a shopping area, this is the one to walk around. It’s a beautiful walk inside an ancient walled city, from gate to gate, with incredible places to stop and enjoy the views of the sea.
