Lovely street to stroll down. Many pastry shops, gelaterias, coffee shops, souvenir shops, artwork. Many great restaurants tucked away in alleys either up or down sets of stairs from the main street.

I loved that the avenue was absent vehicles as it made it much easier to take a leisurely stroll and not miss any of the tons of fantastic stores. We had a lovely lunch, some superb gelato, and purchased the perfect gifts for those left...More

We travelled as Mother and daughter. Having travelled quite a lot in both Italy and Sicily we were a little disappointed that Taormina was quite so busy. It would be quite unbearable, I think, in the height of the season. There were some super shops,...More

This is the main shopping street of Taormina. It is lined with a mix of shops, restaurants, and historical attractions. It is about 3/4 of a mile long between the Catania Gate and the Messina Gate. A pleasant way to spend a half day. It...More
