A real tourist trap but still very lovely. Huge selection of shops from high end fashion to the usual tourist tat. Too many restaurants to count especially if you take a diversion down one of the many quaint side streets. At the west end of...More

Busy and picturesque main street of Taormina. Lots of interesting little independent shops, restaurants and bars. Unmissable if you're in town.

The main street through Taormina. Lined with numerous shops, cafes and restaurants. There are many side streets leading off this street, which are well worth exploring as well.

It is very unfortunate that this is the main street through Taormina, because it is narrow, crowded, and highly unpleasant. The stores are pitched toward wealthy tourists (designer clothes and overpriced souvenirs) and the restaurants are staffed by hosts and waiters trying to get you...More
