Here, old-world grandeur is punctuated with a cosmopolitan spirit. Long evenings on our panoramic terrace sparkle with cultured conversation, and the lure of the sea is never far away. Authentic Sicilian warmth fills our walls and spills out to our stunning gardens, while signature cocktails and Michelin-starred dining satiate the tastebuds. We were the first hotel to be built in Taormina, harnessing the history and mystique of nearby Mount Etna and Greek theatre. This is a place where the old world and new harmonize — this summer, let the laid-back hedonism commence.
