About the neighbourhood
The area of the town house is located in the most antique area of Taormina. The houses of the neighborhood, the small shops and various studios of local artists cause a very special spirit. The famos park area of Taormina 'Giardini Pubblici ' also called 'Villa Comunale' is just around the corner and invites to relax within a very particular 'green mediterranean park' with stunning views on Mount Etna and the Bay of Giardini Naxos. During summer time various classical music concerts and jazz sessions are being held in this park and are a great enrichment for ones holidays. In this neighborhood one doesn't feel like a tourist but as native Sicilian. All sights, bars, restaurants and shops are within a short walking distance
