A Great Place to Stay
I spent a lovely week in Taormina at the end of April. Ezio picked me up from the railway station and showed me round his spacious apartment - a big bright bedroom, comfortable lounge, bathroom with shower and washing machine and my favourite place, the lovely sunny kitchen leading onto the large terrace with its amazing views of Etna. It was a great place to watch people coming and going through the Porta Catania and to enjoy the crazy chaos of the local traffic! The location is ideal with a big supermarket 50m away and a taxi rank even closer plus a local bus stop.
It may not be the place for you if you are looking for total peace and tranquility (restaurant opposite likes it's jazz music!) but I loved the hustle and bustle down below - Taormina is a very lively and busy town as well as being absolutely gorgeous! Don't hesitate to visit and book Ezio's apartment. Recommended!
A lovely apartment in the heart of Taormina
Casa Rando in the heart of Taormina was a real find! Not only was it beautifully positioned for local sights and restaurants, with a useful supermarket just a few doors away, but it was also spacious, very well equipped for self-catering and with a lovely terrace overlooking Mount Etna. The owner, Ezio, could not have been more helpful, and he even picked us up from the bus station when we arrived. Taormina, as well as having many attractions of its own, is well placed for buses and coach trips out to other parts of Sicily, and the apartment was an easy 15-minute walk along the beautiful Corso Umberto to the bus station. It was 17 years since we had last been to Sicily, but we came away resolved to return as soon as possible. Many thanks to Ezio for providing us with such a lovely, well-priced and well-positioned place to stay!
Perfect Location, Gorgeous View of Mount Etna
I loved staying here with my own private terrace and view of Mount Etna. It had everything I needed for a comfortable 3 nights. Right in the center of town. But away from the noise. I walked to everything, the stores, the market, fruit sellers, beach, and felt like a real local. I enjoyed the kitchen to make my own meals when I wanted to and the fact that I could walk to any restaurant to have a meal if I so desired.
The owner was great to interact with and the internet worked well so I could do some work.
This is an excellent place to stay.
Fab fab fab
Beautiful apartment located 50feet from the town gates that bookend either end of the thoroughfare. The views of Etna from the balcony are breathtaking. Ezio is a true gent. Only downside? Couldn't stay longer. Booo
Relaxing! Loved every minute we had in Taormina Sicily due to the location of apartment Rando.
If you're looking for a holiday rental & would love somewhere central to most amenities! Then this is the one for you! Local grocery shop! Sells just about everything you need, practically on your door step! Views Fab! people watching very addictive! incredible! Places to eat! Shops to browse! In abundance! Beach apparently not too far away! Taxis always at hand, We've just visited Taormina Sicily as our daughter was married there! What a special day it was, we had nine nights there, to complete our holiday, what can I say! Amazing Beautiful Island! The only nagative point I'd have to say is that this particular apartment wouldn't be suitable! For anyone! With difficulty climbing steps! As there's quite a few to access the property! Other than that issue! We were in Awe of the time we had!
Thanks to Ezio the owner who was very helpful! With advice on how to get the bus where & time's if we needed to, we were happy with what we had to see & do! Maybe next time! Ezio, Your Mam is lovely too! We briefly met her as we left the apartment. (Two very happy!! people.) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Fantastic location and view to die for
First time to Sicily, we were met by the owner Ezio who was brilliant, gave us a tour of the apartment which is in the perfect location for absolutely everything, supermarket, pizza takeaway, ice cream and lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. The apartment is well equipped and has a view of Etna to die for, it is on the Porta Catania which is busy and excellent for people watching whilst having a vino or beer on the terrace. The main bus station is a 15-20 minute walk down the Taormina main street and the cable car to the beach is near this bus stop. Would recommend getting the bus from Catania airport 7.50 euros per person, only takes just over an hour, but recommend leaving plenty of time returning to the airport as traffic in Catania was very congested. Overall can't recommend Ezio's apartment enough, fantastico! Definitely would stay here again when we visit Taormina. must also mention Ezio's mama, lovely lady.
