This is without doubt your best pic in Taormina. Escape the crowd and just sit and enjoy a glass of wine with the view over Etna. They serve complimentary afternoon snack, the dinner is just ok, so I'd might go somewhere else for that.

The room was beautifully decorated, tranquil and comfortable. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful with useful tips and plenty of local information to ensure we made the most of our trip. The food was delicious, breakfast was a visual treat as well as tasty. I left feeling totally refreshed and relaxed.

Outstanding view, clean modern room and friendly, pleasant, competent staff. My wife and I spent four wonderful nights and enjoyed everything. The food was excellent and we saw no reason to dine elsewhere. The other guests were also delightful. If we are able to return to Taormino this would definitely be our first choice.

We had a fabulous time at Hotel Villa Ducale! The views from the hotel are spectacular. The hotel staff was very professional and helpful in booking a Mount Etna tour and transportation to the airport. There was a regular shuttle to the city center so it was easy to get around town. The restaurant at the hotel served high quality... More

A lovely hotel with fine rooms, delicious food and incredible views. The breakfast dining terrace has one of the most beautiful views in Sicily, overlooking Taormina and the sea. The rooms are comfortable, modern, with nice creature comforts. We arrived very late after midnight and requested an extra down pillow and they delivered it literally in 2 minutes. Since we... More

There is a lot of delicious cake here. Of all kinds and changing daily. It’s complimentary, and served with a choice of tea and fresh juice. You dine with a stunning view, and the produce is organic, locally sourced, and cooked by the hotels mother hen. Breakfast was my favourite; plentiful, fresh, varied, the crockery is gorgeous, and it too... More

From the moment we arrived until we left, the staff could not be more friendly or helpful. The hotel has a beautiful location, overlooking the bay,with Etna in the background. Breakfasts include delicious pastries, fresh fruit and excellent coffee, whilst afternoon tea and cocktail tea offer the chance to socialise with other guests.
