We have just returned from 2 weeks in Sicily and Hotel Villa Ducale was by far our favorite hotel. The view is second to none, hospitality warm and inviting, food enjoyable, and room clean and exactly what was explained in the website. We will definitely return to the Villa Ducale when we return to Taormina. We had a car and could have driven into town, but decided to rely on the shuttle which turned out to be a good idea since the driving is somewhat "challenging" within the city center. On our last night at the Villa Ducale, we decided to forgo our dinner reservation in town and just enjoy the view and relax. Well, we were delighted that Mt. Etna decided to put on a show! My husband is a geologist and was up the whole night enjoying the lava show! Needless to say, our flight plans changed the next day and we had to travel into Palermo rather than Catania to get a flight into Rome, but it was worth it. The whole Hotel Villa Ducale experience was once in a lifetime and we have only great things to say about the hotel. Tip: be sure to book a room with a sea view - - it's well worth the extra cost. Enjoy!
