TripAdvisor traveller rating

Based on 794 reviews

The Hotel Excelsior Palace boasts a spectacular setting. The property is perched on a promontory, which juts out over the western coastline of Sicily, allowing guests to enjoy unbeatable views of the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna in the distance.

The hotel gives you a real taste of historic Sicily. It was one of the first properties to spring up in Taormina when it was built back in 1904, and is even bordered by the remnants of a Greco-Roman wall. Landscaped gardens encircle the hotel building, giving the whole place a tranquil feel. Orange, almond and carob trees line the terraced walkways which lead down to the pool, while tall pines offer plenty of shady spots. The pool itself sits at the bottom of 92 steps, and comes with panoramic sea views.

Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years.

One of my most memorable moments here was sitting with a Prosecco on the terrace, watching Mount Etna spurt lava in the darkness.
