There are also numerous bars, restaurants and shops, particularly along the main street (Corso Umberto),
which runs the entire length of the old town. Be prepared to pay a cover charge (coperto) of 1-2 euros per person.
Taormina, which has an ideal geographical position between the land and the sea, allows you to choose
both meat, which you must try in one of the several trattorie on the slopes of Mount Etna, and fish.
Fish is the true protagonist at the dinner table, however, especially swordfish and smaller fish like tuna,
mackerel, sardines and anchovies that are always extra fresh, and that are prepared in various ways,
according to the traditional Sicilian cooking recipes and served in all the restaurants in Taormina.
