... to the nearest watering hole - Cafe Aloha - coffee and cakes for some, beer for guess who and a croissant from my favourite patron for me. We meet an English speaking Italian who explains the reasons behind the quietness of Piazza Umberto. Nobody, in their right mind, ventures out before 12.45 am for fear of their lives. The loud fireworks at midnight were shotguns being fired willy nilly into the air. I know what you're thinking "Hey, you're a gun dog!!" Sicilians ...

... maybe throw in a pack of volcano dwelling snow wolves or something for effect. It was my inner frugality which is once again to blame for this situation, all because I didn't want to pay 70 Euros for a tour. "Why not go solo!?!" great idea! says me from the warmth and steaminess of the hostel showers, where all great plans are hatched. "Not so great idea!?!" says future me, trying to eat a frozen, and somewhat smaller arancini at the very top of Mt ...
... an espresso and a torte in the piazza and basked in the sun for a good while. Up to this point I had done quiet a bit. I went to a castle (toured that for a solid hour +); went to at least 5 churches; 3 different street markets; went to all the near piazza's, peering into shops; and now I was enjoying the weather. It's only 11 am and I'm already worn.
That was my morning in Catania!

Eventually, I got up and decided to buy some post cards and simply wander the streets. I like to get my bearings. There wasn't too many people out which was perfect. I ended up losing my map somehow and it was nearing 11:30 so I decided to head back ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hotel Silemi Letojanni
My fiance and I stayed at the Hotel Park Silemi this June. On arriving outside the hotel my heart sank as it looks really shabby from the road but don't worry, things definately get better.
We stayed at the Silemi for 2 weeks between June and July 2006. Our group was two adult children and parents and we had 2 twin rooms. We did not pay a supplement so did not get a sea view or balcony but this was not a problem. The set up was ideal as the rooms had an interconnecting door meaning one of the party could be sleeping and not need to be disturbed.
We have just returned from our holiday in letojani and stayed at the Park Hotel Silemi. Overall the Hotel is good, the rooms are very cean and tidy. we had a room with a sea view and a very large balcony. The bathroom was nice and clean however be aware that the shower cubicle is small and not much room to move about in. We stayed Half board and with regards to the food the breakfast is buffet (usual bread rolls, cheese, ham, cereals, etc, we found the dinners to be boring and bland, the same things appearing each day ie, meat escalope changed by way of a different sauce. also there is no atmospheare at meal times as it is quiet - dinner time could do with having some background music for ambience. Nicole on reception was very helpful always with a smile, when settling our hotel bill at the end of the week, we had been charged for a bottle of wine and additional items, charged to our table incorrectly at dinner time, so please ensure you check your bill before paying. Out and abount from the hotel - the fermata - bus service is very good this can be picked up from outside the hotel and costs 2.60 Euros return to Taormina. If you get the chance is is worth getting a minibus from the bus terminal in Taormina up to the little village of Castelmola the fare is only 2.20 euros return. Our Hotel was within walking distance to letojani this is a nice seaside resort where most italian families are holidaying. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, however if you have already eaten and just want to go to a bar with a good atmosphere i would suggest the Twin pub., just off the main square.
We stayed for a week at the Salemi park at the end of May over UK half term.
We stayed at the hotel Park Silemi for two weeks. Don't be put off by the shabby exterior. It is a very peaceful, comfortable, relaxed and friendly place to stay.
If you're going to Sicily - you must stay here !!
We've just got back from spending a wonderful week at the Park Hotel Silemi. It's very romantic - we had a sun balcony facing the Ionian sea and could listen to the waves lapping the shore each night.
The staff were great and looked after us very well. Look out for Pepe, the barman. He is one great guy with a lot of charm and style and is a real asset for the hotel.
The food was lovely - Sicilians eat big meals, but we didn't have any problems fitting it all in. The desserts were to die for and the breakfast sweet rolls are a real must try !! We still returned back to the UK thin.
Well worth a visit. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to anyone.
ph silemi is a nice place to stay.Very peaceful.our room didnt have a balcony but it was fine.we had a jaccuzzi bath.it was very clean.the staff were lovely,especially nicola on reception.she is german and really was very helpful.we ate in the restuarant & the pizzeria below and both were lovely.The staff at the pizzeria especially were very chilled and pleasant.There is a bus stop just outside the hotel to get to letojanni and taormina town. Although you can stroll to letojanni in about 15 minutes.Bring a phrasebook! not a lot of english spoken you will find it helps tremendously (we used lonely planets) especially for menus in nearby restuarants.We found trips to etna etc. organised by reps more expensive than anywhere else we'd been so check around first. we paid for the trip to etna and then when we got there we had to pay to actually go up to etna and the cable car and then the guide too!(you have to go with a guide) so be prepared and bring extra cash just in case! ( we thought it was all in the original payment which was quite expensive to begin with) (nb:not a reflection on the hotel tho!!!) Check your prices in Taormina too they like to take your money.What is one euro one day will be three the next.depends what mood takes them. The beach lifeguards at silemi do a fantastic job so if you have kids you have no worries they have eyes in the back of their heads and are so pleasant.and dont be afraid to use the hotel laundry,they do a fantastic job. well cleaned white trousers for just 5 euros! Have a great time x
otel in good position but get seaview room food ok if you like pasta or spaghetti very little english spoken nicole in reception about the only one beach shingly bus stop to letojani and taormina about 100 yds walk nothing at letojani taormina not to bad if you are looking for touristy shops you ll be disapointed
We had the most beautifull and relaxing 5 nights. Big terrace overlooking the waters edge very spacious clean room. The bathroom was a bit on the small size but so clean it was the cleanest grout in Italy. The service was fantastic and a beautifull breakfast was served overlooking the beach. The beach in front of hotel is amazing calm clear water with hotel provided lounges, towels ect. You are only 15mins by foot to the Fantastic village of Letojanni where you can eat drink and shop for supplies to put in your own fridge in the room. Taromina can be reached by car or bus we would drive and park at the base of the cable car 6 Euro for 24 hours and explore the beaches and Taromina. For 120 Euros a double it was fab location, very clean and spacious and we are all going back to stay again. The front desk staff all spoke excellent english to help you plan your excursions.
Park Hotel Silemi is about 5km from Taormina, it is in another town called Letojanni. I went here with my boyfriend in May 2005, I was a little apprehensive that the hotel was quite far from Taormina and there was no way you could walk there. However this all changed when we entered our room and saw the view... Yes thats right we had an amazing sea view with a balcony, the sea was only a few hundred meters away from our balcony, on the right of the balcony we could see Taormina and the left we can see Messina, and on a clear day you can see Calabria. My boyfriend and I were speechless at the amazing view and were glad that we opted for the sea front view.
