Nestled between the sea and the sky, a precious gem that writers and poets of every era have translated into enchanting verses and star struck prose, Taormina always casts a spell. Exuberant, flowering in the spring, intense in the summer when the sun is blazing, mellow in September as autumn advances, and then superb and spartan in the winter. It is here, in the historic center of Taormina that stands the Hotel Villa Taormina, an antique noble residence from the 1800’s recovered from the Badia Vecchia, one of the symbols of Medieval Taormina. Surrounded by a Sicilian garden with citrus trees, bougainvillea, jasmine and Mediterranean plants, closed in by an antique wall from the Tenth Century, and facing a stupendous panorama that envelops the sea, the hills and Mt. Etna, among the other hotels in Taormina, the Hotel Villa Taormina boasts a privileged position, in the quiet and central Via Fazzello and only 10 minutes from the splendid sea, which can be reached with a free shuttle from the hotel. Any time is the right time for a stay at the Hotel Villa Taormina, one of the most sought after 4 star hotels in Taormina, to experience one of a kind sensations, among the old stones and fastigiate of the Greek Theater and the Archeological Park, a 10 minute walk from the hotel, as well as the traditional artisans and boutiques on Corso Umberto I (only one minute away from the Hotel Villa Taormina) which crosses through the entire historic village, and hosts the lovely buildings from baroque Taormina, among prestigious events and the authentic Sicilian cuisine provided by the renowned restaurants during every season, offering excellent food and night life.
