Location: Amazing, right in the heart of this glamorous hill top town and a 1 minute walk into Corso Umberto: the main town center street. But getting to the beech is not easy, you have to take a "Funivia" cable car, whilst we loved doing this i imagined a family with kids may find it a chore.
Isola Bella is the go to Beech, yes its drop dead gorgeous but nothing is free in Sicily and when you pitch up at this beech you will be harangued to have a massage and they dont take no for an answer. Just pay the 10 Euros and have a massage, resistance is futile!
Facilities: TV Fridge everything works and there's a communal cupboard where top notch left overs and up for grabs.
So where's the Supermarket?
Yes Taormina has one, we visited every morning, its address is "Punto Simply, Viale Apollo Arcageta, 16, 98039. Its an easy ealk to reach it from the apartment.
Weather in September?
Fab, 27 Deg most days with light breezes and Mt Etna kept quiet ;-)
Sunbathing on the roof top?
Yes its doable but the roof top whilst amazing views etc needs a bit of tlc.
Would i re book here?
Yes Yes Yes!
Clean, spacious enough for 4, wonderful terrace above with a view towards Etna and the sea. Furnished with all appliances, everything functional. Close to all the attractions in the center - 3 minutes walk.
Ask for directions in advance from Francesca before coming, especially if you come by car.
We had a wonderful 3 night stay in this centrally located apartment. It had all of the amenities we neede and the pictures are exactly as shown with fantastic views from the balcony and the rooftop terrace.
We got great tips on places to see and eat and we used them all, and they were all right on. The Only downside is that the bed was too hard for us but that could be personal taste. I would recommend this apartment to my friends.
We really enjoyed staying in this spacious apartment for part of our Sicily trip. The apartment is in a great location, walking distance from the main street, amphitheatre and bus station.
Francesca the owner, was lovely and very helpful with providing my husband and I with useful information on places visit and restaurant recommendations.
The roof terrace was ideal for relaxing, after a long day.
We enjoyed the balcony of the apartment too, great place to have breakfast, and the kitchen is also well stocked on essentials.
We really enjoyed staying in Taormina in general as the place has its own charm. We have wonderful memories that we will treasure. Happy honeymooners.
What I liked most about staying here was how easy it was to get to Corso Umberto. What I didn't like was that it about a 30 minute walk to the beach though. If you plan on going to all the shops and night life in Taormina this is the spot to go. The terrance is beautiful and If I would've known there was a bbq pit, I would've brought more food along to grill. There is no parking, so if you are coming by car and want a close place to park, this isn't the place for you. I came for my birthday weekend with 3 other people. We slept comfortably. ! bed and then 1 pull out couch was enough.
