Shopping

Shopping

In Corso Umberto I, the most elegant street in the city, and in all the surrounding little lanes, there are many high fashion stores, jewelers’ shops containing handmade gold and silver objects, antique shops, souvenir shops and lots of others too.
Craftwork lovers will be happy in Taormina, as you can find all the typical Sicilian craftwork products in many of the shops: pottery from Caltagirone, carved marble and wrought iron.
This last craft in particular has many famous followers in the city. Some shops sell wonderful objects and furniture for the home, inlaid in marble and semi-precious stones and made using ancient techniques: after designing the object (most of which are representations of Nature), the marble base is chosen, on which the design is traced and then the semi-precious stones are added for the inlaid work.
In the summer in Piazza Carmine, near to the cathedral, a small open-air market is opened where you can buy typical local food and craft products of various kinds: statues made in lava stone or paintings of the breath-taking landscapes in the area.
Other typical products of this area are Vino alle mandorle, a dry white wine made from mixing alcohol with bitter almonds and other essences, that is made in Castelmola, a charming village near Taormina, which is famous for its sixteenth century castle.
