We spent 8 days travelling around Sicily starting from Palermo & finishing in Taoromina. Taoromina & especially Villa Ducale was definately the highlight of the hoiday. It is a beautiful boutique hotel with amazing views & fantastic hospitality of the staff. On arrival, the staff all introduced themselves personally & took us to the main terrace which had the most breath taking view of Mt Etna & the sea. We were offered drinks & then one of the staff sat to explain in depth the facilities & the town. Then soon after a spread of home made sicilian appetizers were brought out & we discovered this was complimentary at 6.30pm every evening- a great touch! The overall decor of the hotel & rooms was charming, very unique with lots of colourful ceramic tiles & ornaments. Our room was great - 2 terraces with the same maginificent view as the main terrace. So romantic. The bathroom was spacious with lovely toiletries & bath/shower facilities. There was a complmentary bus into town & to the beach which made everything very simple. We spent a day at a private beach with beautiful water & again everyone was so friendly. We highly recommend this hotel & Taoromina if you are visiting Sicily.
