Shopping is all too easy in Taormina—just walk along Corso Umberto I. Ceramics are one of Sicily's most notable handicrafts, and Taormina's shops are among the best places to buy them on the island, as the selection is excellent. Di Blasi Ceramiche, Corso Umberto I 103 (tel. 0942/24671), has a nice range of designs and specializes in the highly valued “white pottery” from Caltagirone. Mixing the new and the old, Carlo Panarello Antichità, Corso Umberto I 122 (tel. 0942/23910) offers Sicilian ceramics (from pots to tables) and also deals in eclectic antique furnishings, paintings, and engravings.
