Villa Ducale Review

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.
