Never got tired of walking through Corso Umberto. This is the main street of Taormina after all. The street that is always eager to please and surprise with its sights, sounds, shops and life.
Corso Umberto is stretching for about one kilometre through the old Medieval town from one ancient gateway to another. From Piazza San Antonio to Piazza Vittorio Emanuelle II.
It’s the meeting place for the locals too. This is the road they choose to stroll, chat and be seen. Unavoidably mixing with rich and famous quite regularly.
Corso Umberto and its side roads offer a great choice of bars and restaurants. And for the lovers of shopping, this is the place that you will not be disappointed with all the options available to you. There is plenty to admire or buy. From trendy boutiques to world famous fashion designers, to shoemakers, jewellers, art galleries, handmade pieces of art for your homes, souvenirs of all kinds and types and so much more.
So, do enjoy a walk along and either spoil yourself buying whatever captivates your eye or relax and enjoy a coffee, an aperitivo or a meal on the main street or at the small picturesque alleys downwards and upwards Corso Umberto.
This is an experience not to forget. And if you are still looking for other things to do then our suggestion is that before anything else… Start exploring it all over again.
As for where to stay we strongly recommend Hotel Metropole which benefits of a wonderful location in Corso Umberto and Hotel El Jebel again wonderfuly located just a few passes from Corso Umberto at Salita Ciampoli.
