B&B Joan's Heritage was absolutely wonderful. Brilliantly situated just inside the old town, behind Messina Gate, and at the beginning of the main pedestrian street, it gave us easy access to much of Taormina - a town we absolutely loved. Our room was clean, charming, comfortable and decorated with an old world charm. One of our bedroom windows had the... More

There are 2 entrances into the city. If you're driving head to the Messina Gate. The B&B is parallel to the wall. The unit is clean, breakfast is good, free parking is provided and the place is a stroll from everything. Although the town is quaint it's actually just an assortment of shops and restaurants. We were there in October... More

Very compact room yet comfy and enough storage places. Bathroom was brand new and efficient. They provided pillows with different thickness. The owner lady is very cool yet helping and supporting. Very central location; right on the main shopping street and very nearby to the bus stop. Also offers private parking place at 5min. walking distance. Perhaps some would complain... More

When planning our trip to Taormina to meet our wedding planners they suggested this B&B which was a very reasonable price and close to the Main Street. I was a bit hesitant booking a b&b but it was as good as a hotel. The owner Patrizia met us in arrival and showed us to our room, it was lovely and... More

Really nice room and centrally located however we had one problem. We gave in our passports to check in and did not receive them back for over 8 hours. This was after much chasing on our side ( including a phonecall), when we finally got them back we felt that there was little appreciation as to why this would be... More

It is a little and cozy B&B right on Taormina City' s main road. Everything is accessible and you do not have to worry about driving and parking, if you decide to park at the owner's little garage. like 5 minutes away - walking distance. For those, like my husband and I, who love this beautiful postcard-like town. It is... More

We spent four nights at this B&B - did not realize that it was so close to all the action, and there was plenty going on in Taormina at that time. The streets were crowded with tourists and there is nothing wrong with that, but we would have preferred to stay a little further from the hustle and bustle. The... More
