Taormina is a charming medieval hilltop town on the east coast of Sicily. Hotel Villa Ducale sits right above the old town blessed with exceptional panorama on Mount Etna and the Strait of Messina. In the right weather condition, you can see as far as the ancient port city, Catania. Unsurprisingly the hotel is built around this breathtaking view, and you can enjoy it from your practically everywhere. Even the pool! This boutique hotel has received the "Most Romantic Hotel in Italy 2019" award, and it's not hard to see why.
The choice of rooms and suites range from the relatively small but cozy Courtyard room to the spacious Suite Villa that has its very own large terrace overlooking the sea and Mount Etna. Interiors have remarkably great attention to detail and understated design of the best kind. The dining experience at Villa Ducale Restaurant can be summed up by the two distinctive influences. The mouthwatering gourmet Sicilian food and the spectacular views over the coast from the panorama terrace. The pool is encircled by blooming flowers and plants with their Mediterranean scent.
