We stayed at the Villa Ducale for 4 nights and loved it. You will be greeted when you arrive as if you were family. The staff (especially Alessia and Santi) are wonderful. They will go out of their way to make sure that you can go see the best parts of Taormina and tell you the best ways to get there. The views from the breakfast terrace and room were spectacular. You are so high up that you could just sit and look at the views for hours. The breakfast was superb - really authentic Sicilian foods - like fried zucchini flowers, stuffed tomatoes, all types of cheeses. There also were homemade sweets for breakfast - strawberry cream pie, pear pie, cream puffs, as well as fresh fruits and Italian breads. The hotel is situated high up in Taormina - almost in Castelmola. It is a little hard to get there because the roads wind up the mountain, but you will be delighted when you get there. Great place to stay...wish we stayed longer.
