Are you a shopaholic? Here’s a small guide for Shopping in Taormina: this town will offer you the chance to buy not only high-quality designer clothes, but also local handicrafts and wine and food typical products of the area.
Starting from the finest boutiques, to find the best international fashion trademarks, we suggest you take a walk down Corso Umberto I, the exclusive part of the city, and the little streets nearby: clothing and accessories, souvenir and antique shops, jewelries exposing great hand-made liberty or art-déco style items, and of course elegant cafés and ice-cream shops, to get some rest and taste a delicious granita, with the flavor you want (we suggest you try the jasmine one). Together with high-fashion clothing and jewels you can also buy antique items and the world-famous Caltagirone ceramics, but also quality vintage prints as well as tissues, tablecloths and Eighteen hundred-style embroidery.
Antique shops can be found outside the main Corso Umberto I too; in summer, after your visit at the Dome of Taormina, you will find a delicious wine and food market in the front square of the church where you can buy all the must-have products of the area and of the whole Sicily: capers, Arab seasonings and spices, the famous almond wine, traditional desserts and delicious home-baked bread. The market also offers local handcraft products such as lava statues, prints and paintings: to fulfill any need and bring back home tangible memories of your holiday in Taormina.
