This is my first post here, and I'm happy to find this forum among othe Sicilian forums!
I am going to Taormina in 2 weeks for the first time, sadly - just for a week...
We'll be staying at Sole Castello hotel (http://www.hotelsolecastello.it/taormina-3stars-hotel/ ) with Neckermann. I know that the hotel is situated really high, about 1 km above Taormina, but it is not such a big problem because the view from there seems to be splendid.
However, I have just discovered, on the Google maps, that it seems like the hotel is located directly above the Cattania - Messina highway! Is it true ?
On the other hand, when you zoom in the satelite version of the map, there is no highway at all.
Could somebody confirm that the highway is/isn't there ? If it is there, does it have a big influence to the hotel (noisy??).
Thank you very much in advance!
