A soon as

you arrive in Taormina, you will feel the magical, mythical atmosphere spread all around which has enchanted visitors from all over the world for years and years. Settled on a hill of the Monte Tauro, Taormina dominates two grand, sweeping bays below and on the southern side, the top of Mount Etna, the European highest active volcano, often capped with snow, offering to the visitors a breathtaking, dramatic and memorable view over almost one hundred miles of Mediterranean sea. Taormina really seems to be born as a tourist resort since past times, when ancient people like the Sicels, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Saracens, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards chose it as their residential site thank to its favourable position, mild climate and magic atmosphere.

This part of the island offers a number of wonderful places to visit on daytrips or excursions, including, Catania, Syracuse, Noto, Caltagirone and the utterly unforgettable volcanic peak of Mt. Etna. Mt. Etna is Europe's highest active volcano and Sicily's highest mountain. Don't miss the chance to explore Sicily's greatest natural attraction via guided excursions.

The significant ancient greek theater is host to 'Taormina Arte,' the town's annual summer international arts festival of film, music, dance and theatre. Taormina is a haven for tourists, offering many restaurants, bars, discos, entertainment and sports. Take a stroll along the Corso and be sure to stop into one of the local cafés for a taste of granita and a piece of frutta martorana.

Great apartment in a terrific location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely and Antonello was a very generous and gracious host. He gave us lots of good information about where to eat and what to see and do. Everything you need is close by and the apartment has all that you need. Unfortunately, the people in the apartment above us started hammering and moving furniture at about 11 o'clock at night for 2 of the 3 nights we were there. Antonello was very sympathetic and when we told him he found out that the tenants in the apartment were moving out. We would definitely stay there again but I would want to know we could get a good nights sleep.

Great place to explore Taormina

  • 4 of 5

Massimo and Antonello's apartment was a great place to stay in Taormina. Antonello met us at the cab stand as we had come by train from Siracusa. It was a short walk to the apartment. The apartment was very clean and had lovely high ceilings. It had all the amenities and Antonello was kind enough to leave us two sets of towels as we were staying 11 days. There was a bottle of wine to greet us, which was a nice touch. The apartment is on a quiet street and close to a supermarket and a good street vegetable vendor. It was a perfect location for our daily passagieta down the main street- Corso Umberto I. We would definitely recommend the apartment. Antonello was a very helpful host.

Lovely Stay in Tairmina

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. Prior to our arrival Massimo was very helpful with explaining how to get to Taormina from Catania. He was always quick to answer my questions via e-mail. We were met at the bus station by the owner's son who took us to the apartment. The property was just as it stated in the listing.

It was clean and the appliances were all working and in good condition. We liked the location being walking distance to the main shopping street, Corso Umberto. We would not hesitate to recommend the place or stay there again.

Great Apartment!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great apartment in an ideal location in Taormina. It is a 2 minute walk to Corso Umberto, close to a grocery store and local fruit/vegetable cart, not too mention C&G, the best gelato place in town!! Antonello and Massimo couldn't have been better hosts, so helpful and kind. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and Antonello even purchased gluten free food and bus tickets for us, amazing! Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Immer einen Aufenthalt wert!

  • 5 of 5

Auch unser zweiter Aufenthalt im Casa Tauromenium war wieder sehr angenehm. Ausstattung und Einrichtung ließen nichts zu wünschen übrig. Auf unsere Bitte vom letzten Jahr hin, waren sogar ein Toaster und eine Espressokanne angeschafft worden.

Besonders hervorzuheben ist die freundliche Betreuung vor Ort durch Antonello.

Wir werden sicher wieder einmal hier einchecken.

Four Days in Taormina

  • 5 of 5

We made great memories in Taormina, a beautiful town tucked in the mountains that surround the volcano Etna.

The views of the Mediterranean and the volcano were breathtaking from every corner of the town. Our hosts, Antonello and Massimo made every effort to make our vacation unforgettable. The apartment was in a perfect location, near the center of Taormina but slightly away from the noisy Via Umberto. It was comfortable and charming and would recommend it to anyone that visits Taormina.
