My wife, three girls and I stayed in this apartment (penthouse) over Easter 2013. We rented a car at Catania Airport and made the short and easy drive to Taormina and parked at the ‘Lumbi’ car park. The apartment is located on the main street, Corso Umberto and just a very short walk from the Lumbi bus stop.
The apartment is beautifully furnished with a very well equipped kitchen and a lovely terrace looking out towards the sea. The beds and linen are of very high quality so you are guaranteed good night sleep. Even though the apartment is in the middle of town it is really quiet and since the town is pedestrianized there is virtually no noise anyway.
The owner Magda (who is lovely) was there to meet us and left us a nice bottle of local wine which was much appreciated after our long days travelling.
When you walk down the stairs and out through the front door you are on the main pedestrianized street (Corso Umberto) with shops, restaurants, bakeries, markets, just about everywhere. You are also just a very short stroll to the Greek Theatre, Public Gardens, churches, piazzas and the cable car that will take you down to the beaches.
Basically this apartment/penthouse is the perfect place to stay while visiting Taormina and I have no doubt we will return.
