Fodor's Expert Review 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 in which each individually styled guest room is furnished with antiques and has a balcony with a view, and the public spaces include an intimate wood-paneled library. The vast roof terrace, where a fantastic breakfast is served, takes in a wide panorama embracing Etna and the bay below.
