Reviewing some hotels in Taormina. When compared to the rest of Sicily, and even other Italian areas, the prices seem a bit high! I don't mind paying for it, but I'm starting to wonder if Taormina is a bit too "Swanky" or "Posh" for my interests? Is it one of these overpriced cities, just because it can be, and there is a culture of people that love paying for it? Or am I paying $300 for a hotel room because it's actually that good!
Any suggestions? I got 3 nights in the area, and I love staying in rustic towns, with a personality. A good restaurant or two nearby also helps! And I would need parking!
Maybe Taormina is not where I should be staying... I'm open to suggestions, for areas close by!
Most of the hotels seem to have big pools, and other amenities that I have no use for!
Anyway, thanks in advance!
