Taormina requires at least a 3 night stay and Hotel Taodomus makes any time there a good experience. The staff is friendly, engaging, helpful, and doesn't hold back with efforts to be of service from carrying luggage to making special breakfasts. The morning staff on the terrace are cheerful and fun, the food delicious, varied, and plentiful, and the setting is beautiful. The views from the terrace of the water, the town, and Mt. Etna are stunning and we were fortunate to have good weather. Early spring, here, is chilly in the shade and after the sun goes down and hot in the sun so layers are important. Our 1st floor room overlooked the street and the street noise just brought in the good energy of the town. The rooms were very quiet and dark with windows shut. The town is charming and the restaurants plentiful and good. We wished we'd planned a longer stay and would definitely stay here again. Parking was not a problem and there was a laundromat in easy walking distance.
