Villa Ducale

Via Leonardo da Vinci 60, Taormina, Sicily, 98039, Italy

The former summer residence of a local aristocrat has been converted into a luxurious hotel where each room has a balcony with a view. Individually styled rooms are all furnished with antiques, and an intimate wood-paneled library is at once homelike and romantic. The vast roof terrace, where a fantastic breakfast is served, takes in the wide panorama embracing Etna and the bay below. It's a trek into town, but a year-round free shuttle bus whisks you to the city center or the area's best beaches.

PROS

  • away from the hubbub
  • camera-ready views

CONS

  • A 10- to 15-minute walk to the center of Taormina
  • the restaurant menu can be limited
