Set in the hillside just below Taormina's town centre, the Grand Hotel Miramare looks out over the sea and the lovely bay of Mazzarò Beach.
The hotel is only a ten-minute walk from Taormina's historic town centre and the cable car that runs down to the coast below. Built in 1922, this patrician villa of the Lo Turco family was transformed in 1926 into the lovely hotel that stands there today. Careful restorations have maintained the charm of this former residence whilst integrating the modern comforts of a four star hotel. Bright guest rooms enjoy sea views and the hotel’s dining room faces a large terrace overlooking the Messina Straight.
The swimming pool and tennis court are located at the bottom of hotel's pretty terraced gardens that extend down 187 steps (there's no lift available) and command marvellous views, and guests can also spend their days relaxing here whilst the poolside bar serves light meals and refreshments.
Amidst a verdant park, the Grand Hotel Miramare is only 400 metres away from the centre of Taormina and a short walk from the funicular and the impressive 3rd century BC Greek Theatre, which was later rebuilt by the Romans.
The Grand Hotel Miramare is a favourite hotel of Citalia guests, many of whom return year after year for the great location, hospitality and rooms with stunning sea views.
