About the location
Holidays in Taormina marry history and culture to form an unforgettable experience in Italy. It’s perched at the top of Monte Tauro in the foothills of Mount Etna on Sicily’s Eastern coastline, between the cities of Catania and Messina. This ancient town offers visitors a view into the past with a number of elegantly preserved historic treasures, from the grand Greek-Roman Theatre to the equally impressive Palazzo Corvaja, which are just waiting to be discovered.
You don’t have to be a history buff to make the most of everything Taormina has to offer. Alongside the historical sights there are plenty of other attractions to take in. The main street, Corso Umberto, is traffic free and home to an array of shops and restaurants to rival any in the bigger cities.
There are also plenty of seaside activities to dive into thanks to the town’s coastal setting. Adventurous travellers can try watersports like wind surfing and snorkelling, while relaxing scenic boat tours around the gorgeous capes and grottos of the Ionian Sea allow you to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, simply spend long tranquil days on sun soaked shingle beaches.
The hotel is 1 hour from Catania airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Mazzar?? Sea Palace for the first 4 nights of our Honeymoon, and boy was it the perfect place to kick it off!! beautiful ocean views, delicious food, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We arrived before check in and they went out of their way to get us our room early. We were definitely spoiled as well, and felt like we were the only guests there, even though the hotel was fully booked. My wife has a fish allergy and they took it very seriously (they also have gluten free options); she felt safe knowing she could eat off the menu without worrying about contamination. The food selection was to die for and amazingly fresh each night, we kept bypassing other restaurants to come back to the hotel restaurant. We booked an excursion to Mount Etna through the concierge and they were very through in explaining all of the options and helping us figure out what was best for us. The tour was amazing and one of the highlights of our trip. We felt so well taken care of. Absolutely a trip to remember. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a hidden gem in Sicily. Perfetto!

we came right after the busy season (end of Sept/early Oct), in need of some R&R. This hit the spot. Right on a little bay, with an extremely well served beach area -- amazingly nice towel/beach staff consisting of the most helpful and cheerful people -- as well as bar/food service right to the beach. And for the times when you had enough of the beach you are 2 minutes away from the funicular up to Taormina (a whole 'notherr wonder!). We had a fantastic meal at the restaurant one evening and the breakfasts were fantastic : plentiful and varied, and of course by the side of the sea. The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom well stocked. We were only sorry to have stayed for 4 days. We'll be back!
