Taormina is commercialized but this is not a problem as it is such a delightful place to visit. Hotel Schuler is located just a few steps from the main street via their gardens. Everything is within walking distance and Taormina has some of the best restaurants, if you are willing to choose and pay for the best ones.
We opted for a room with a large terrace that had wonderful views of the sea and Etna. Besides the terrace our room included a separate area with a table and chairs.
Breakfast was excellent and it was a joy to sit in the shade eating breakfast with wonderful scenery.
The hotel is very well presented, charming and recommended.
