We spent a week in Taormina and walked Corso Umberto almost every day. It is great for shopping, selecting restaurants, or just for people watching. It is what Taormina is all about.

Traffic is not allowed after 9am. Take an early morning coffee and watch the frantic delivery activities.. Packed with shops/bars/cafes and ice cream & pastry shops.. Fridays and Saturdays are great just watching the locals parading..

Taormina itself is the most beutiful city in Sicily. We went there in August and the streets were completely crowded. Still, you can see the beauty of the city with its hidden little spots and charming little streets around.

I have never arrived at the port. I assume you are talking about Messina . I should think there's are taxis there but at what cost I have no idea what they will charge.
