The hotel is situated in the hilltop town of Taormina, on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean’s second largest island, overlooking the Bay of Taormina and the Ionian Sea. Sicily is renowned for its Greek temples and theatres – many just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel and of course, Mount Etna, Europe’s biggest active volcano which is visible clearly from many of the hotel’s balconies and terraces.
