Taormina, Province of Messina, Sicily
Lovely apartment in Taormina. It' s located in a beautiful and quite contest, away from the crowded streets. There is no need for a car. The greek theatre is nearby and the old villa comunale ( the city park) just round the corner. Not far from the historical and pedestrian center ( called Corso Umberto), you easily can reach the most famous restaurants, pubs, pizzerias and discos, the main monuments of Taormina, and obviously Piazza Ix Aprile, from where you admire a breathtaking scenery. The taxi station, the bus station and the cable- car ( the best way to go the sea) can be reached on foot only in 10 minutes. House is perfect for young couple and old couple too, with one or two children. The apartment is situated in a building, entirely renovated and modernized in a perfect taste by the owners. Inside, the floors were rest... Read more

We have stayed 8 nights in Casa del Minotauro, 3 adults and 1 child. The house is very conveniently located in the center of Taormina yet away from all the noise of this beautiful city. It is the perfect choice if you want to reach all the sights and restaurants and in the same time, relax and sleep during night...

This is a great apartment finished to a very high specification and perfectly positioned in Taormina for exploring the town and visiting the beach by cable car. We received a very warm welcome from Mario and everything we could want was provided in the apartment.

I really enjoyed my two-week stay at Casa del MInotauro. The apartment is modern, well equipped, and comfortable. It's a stone's throw from the Italian language school where I was studying, Babilonia, and within easy reach of two small markets and countless restaurants and shops. The apartment is on the ground floor, with four steps up. It's on a very...

About the neighbourhood
Taormina is a small town on the east coast of the island of Sicily. This beautiful place has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. The village of Taormina is perched on a cliff overlooking the Ionian sea. Besides the ancient Greek theatre, it has many old churches, lively bars, fine restaurants, and antique shops. Taormina is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna.
