Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo

Via Teatro Greco 59, Taormina, Sicily, 98039, Italy

On a princely perch overlooking the town, the Greek theater, and the bay, this truly grand hotel wears a graceful patina that suggests la dolce vita. A splash of Baroque mixes with Mediterranean in the lobby, which has tile- and brickwork walls and vaulted ceilings. Fine linens and drapes, Oriental rugs, and prints in gilted frames decorate the rooms, 32 of which are in the neighboring Villa Flora. Opt for a meal at the restaurant or a drink on the terrace to gaze over one of Italy's most memorable vistas. Happily, all rooms have balconies or terraces—many with the same unforgettable panoramic outlook.
