"Room with a view"
My husband and I have travelled far and wide but have never been to Sicily before. When we arrived in Taormina which is about a 40 minute drive from Catania Airport, we were very impressed at the location of the hotel which was about 200 metres from sea level. We stayed in the Mount Etna suite (which as you would think) had a fantastic view of the volcano Mount Etna. We relaxed on the beautiful, private terrace, watching the volcano smoke as well as the fantastic view of the town itself. It really was paradise. As for the staff, they couldn't have been more helpful. No request was too much to ask for and they were all very informative of the area, giving any advice they could assist you with. Unlike my Italian, their english was very good. The hotel itself (especially if you are a Simple Minds fanatic like my husband is) is fantastic. The only downside to the vacation was that our stay wasn't long enough, and therefore, we would definitely go back.
