This is an extraordinary place. It is the most civilized hotel I have every visited. My husband and I relaxed from the moment we arrived. Parking, baggage, all was magically arranged. Our room had amazing views of the sea and Mt. Etna. The veranda is beautiful. The meals are all from local products and exceptionally gourmet, beautifully presented. My only... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of April. As soon as I walked in it felt comfortable and charming and my first thought was I could live here. In fact it had been someone's house. We had a suite and it was very comfortable. The bathroom was very roomy and they supply many toiletries... More

We just got home from our second stay @ Villa Ducale. We absolutely loved it again… but maybe even more this time! Paolo and his fantastic staff/team provided us with 1st Class service and as we Irish say, "A Hundred Thousand Welcomes" Definitely our favourite Hotel in the World! P.S You will love the food too.

We spent 9 nights as "guests" in this charming establishment and could not have been more satisfied. The team was absolutely fabulous and treated us as if we were in their own home. Each day we were pampered by the team consisting of Eduardo, Paolo, Santi, Serena, Mama Santina, Luana and Julian (I hope I did not leave anyone's name... More

I give Villa Ducale top marks. Upon early arrival we sipped wine in the open air breakfast/dining room that overlooks the city and Mt. Etna. the manager gave us a complete rundown of the area and how to access the hotel's van pick up as well as how to find the stairs to downtown. The hotel staff continued to give... More

This is the best hotel that I've ever stayed at. It is perfect for a vacation hotel. My wife and I stayed there for 11 nights and were treated like royalty. The staff is incredible and made us feel that we were visiting family, not a hotel. We chose the hotel based on its reputation and location. It is not... More

Just came back from an incredible stay at the Villa Ducale which we selected thanks to Trip Advisor! Perfect location with a dining area that looks straight at the ever changing views of Mt.
