What a lovely place to stay. The view across to Mount Etna was exceptional and the night lights in Giardini-Naxos bay very pretty. Villa Barone is exceptionally clean and well appointed. Carmen was the perfect hostess, full of suggestions as to where to visit and how we might get there; she also provided a lovely varied continental breakfast each morning. It must be stressed that it is a long and steep walk up the hill from Taormina town and not recommended for either the faint-hearted, or the unfit. Carmen does, however, provide a shuttle service to the town and, more importantly, back up the hill. The bus from Taormina to Castelmola passes Villa Barone, but the service is not very frequent.
