We stayed right on the street in a apartment and it was the best experience. Close to everything and you could walk around with ease. This place was amazing.

No tack here. The shops are beautiful especially the craft shops. Can be very very busy and hot especially when the cruise ships are in town. Very atmospheric and family friendly. Street entertainment in the evenings. Loved Taormina

Corso Umberto is the main street which runs the length of the old town of Taormina. It is a pedestrianised area (except for vehicles collecting rubbish), which is just as well, as it gets very congested when groups of tourists from a cruise liner come...More
