Corso Umberto I

Corso Umberto I crosses the entire town in what is the most iconic walk in Taormina. It goes from Porta Catania to Porta Messina, the two ancient gateways that guard the city define the border of the medieval town. The road will lead you to historical sites of the city as well as some of its most famous restaurants, cafes and shops.

The medieval town can probably be walked within one day and this gem located on the East coast of Sicily has a unique charm that has attracted many travellers, despite its small size. The historical centre, Corso Umberto I with its shops and traditional Sicilian restaurants, crystal water beaches and the numerous options for a day trip in the Sicilian surroundings are some of the ingredients that make the so called "pearl" of the Ionic Sea so unique and alluring.
