I had the pleasure of staying here for 7 nights while in Taormina, a jewel of a place. Three of those nights were spent in the top floor, air conditioned apartment, which has a huge patio offering an unforgettably gorgeous view of the surrounding town, coastline below, the sea and the Italian mainland. There is a fully equippend en suite... More

Located on a quiet side street, this flat has a large living/dining room with a balcony that overlooks a peaceful garden with great views of the ocean. Because I was alone in the home for the evening I did not mind that the... More
