Hotel Villa Paradiso

Via Roma 2, Taormina, Sicily, 98039, Italy

On the edge of the old quarter, overlooking the lovely public gardens and facing the sea, this family-run hotel is not as well-known as some of its neighbors, despite a 100-year history. Though it shows its age in places with its antique furnishings, paintings, and Persian rugs, it makes up for it thanks to the views of Etna from many rooms, delightful service, and a good rooftop restaurant. A regular free shuttle-bus service runs to the hotel's aptly named Paradise Beach Club between June and mid-October (though be aware that it gets overcrowded quickly) and guests can use the nearby tennis courts (55 minutes play time daily, no charge).

CONS

  • overall a bit more shabby than chic
