Villa Ducale was not only the best hotel we stayed in during our 16 days traveling throughout Sicily, it is one of the best hotels I have stayed in over many years of travel. The views from the terrace for breakfast, tea time and cocktail hour were breathtaking. The breakfasts were an incredible variety of Sicilian meats, cheeses, vegetables, pastries as well as cereals, bacon and eggs -- never needed to have lunch in Taormina. The staff was hands down the best ever - multilingual but willing to help me as I used my basic Italian. Antonio was great on our arrival - felt immediately and warmly welcomed as he sat down with us on the terrace with a glass of wine and carefully explained everything we needed to know about our stay in Taormina. The rest of the staff were just as helpful with our questions, restaurant recommendations and calling for reservations.
The shuttle service down to the town by very skilled drivers was invaluable although the walk down and back up the stairs was not that bad if you like to get some exercise after all the food you will eat there. I would definitely return here just to see again the beautiful city of Taormina and stay at the Villa Ducale.
