ETNALAND!!!

... while the girls ran around like madmen, going down slid after slide, ride after ride -Paolo went with on the slides and I on the more scary rides, but the professionalism of all the lifeguards and staff allowed us to relax a little and let the girls explore on their own - it was hard to let go, though!

When we arrived, all the young kids were running around in jellies or socks and we rolled our eyes at their Italian softness, but they'd ...

... lunch and Lia found me a pumice stone, which I intend bringing home....

Later that evening, after the requisite siesta, we set off to Linguaglossa to a few places that Señora recommended: Bar Le Palme for granite and l'Alhambra pasticceria for a local pastry delicacy made of pistachio, almonds or hazelnut. While we were walking around, I was struck again by the groups of ...

Castles and pistachios.....

A travel blog entry by suzannevalle

On Tuesday, we decided to explore the villages surrounding Mount Etna (locals pronounce it Et-uh-na) - Castiglione di Sicilia and Bronte, famous for its pistachios.

We parked at the bottom of the town and started wending our way upward on the cobbled streets amid groans and wails of hunger, boredom, thirst, and needing to wee...... We met a kind (clever?) shopkeeper who told us about the trinacria, the symbol for (and early name for) Sicily, comprising ...

Naples to Catania

... the ampi theatre and some gorgeous buildings. We sat and had a coffee and then started walking again and around another corner was the biggest markets we have ever seen. It just kept going and going and going. From new and used clothes, jewellery, shoes, leather goods, bathers, electronics, toys, hats and fruit and vegetables. It was amazing. As we kept walking we came across old churches and beautiful buildings and just enjoyed it so much. ...

Pit Stop in Paradiso

... slice of Paradiso (the Italian word for 'Paradise').

Seeing that it is summer in America and Europe, I cant brag to you about the beautiful sunny warm weather, but I can say that the location was one of the most beautiful places that I have seen. Both from the top of the mountain in Taormina to the beach in Nexos. To God be the glory for creating such a beautiful world! Next stop: Switzerland!

Ciao belli raggazi!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Soleado Taormina

    Good value family hotel

    from

    This is a good budget hotel in expensive Taormina. It doesn't have the jaw dropping views, though the outlook is pleasant, but it is very close (5 minute walk) to the town centre, in a quiet residential part of town. The owner was helpful and friendly, the breakfast was very nice (good coffee, fresh bread rolls), there is a little cafe bar open all day and in summer a pool to cool off in. The rooms were quite spacious, bed comfortable, nearly all rooms had a balcony or verandah. Only down sides were bathroom with no window so towels stayed damp, slightly noisy plumbing. The other possible problem would have been if there was anyone noisy in the next room as the walls were a bit thin, however we had a very peaceful nights sleep. Oh yes, and book your parking in advance if possible (8 euros extra) as there are only a handful of spaces and parking in Taormina is a nightmare!

    Heim in der Ferne

    from

    Wie viele andere waren auch wir uns nicht sicher, was uns erwarten würde. Keine Sorge. Nach einer langen Fahrt von Palermo wurden wir von Roberto mit "Willkommen, Sie müssen Herr ... sein" begrüßt. Wir waren offensichtlich die letzten Gäste, die ankamen! Dann sagte er, unser Zimmer wäre eine "Katastrophe" (sein kleiner Witz). Ganz falsch, denn wir hatten ein schönes, sauberes und frisches Zimmer mit Klimaanlage, TV, schöner Baddusche und einem Doppelbalkon mit Blick auf das Meer und den Sonnenaufgang. Die ganze Familie war freundlich. Der Pool war schön, die Preise in der Bar günstig, Frühstück ausreichend, wenn auch nicht besonders abwechslungsreich. Die Lage ist perfekt für die Innenstadt. Kleiner Spaziergang zur Hauptstraße. Die Strände liegen etwas abseits von der Stadt. Am besten ist der Strand Giardino Naxos, der Liegen, Umkleidemöglichkeiten und weichen Sand bietet.

    Mit Pool

    from

    Haben im August 6 Nächte hier verbracht. Familiengeführtes Hotel mit Pool, kleiner Bar und sehr nettem Personal. Der Preis betrug 100 EUR mit Klimaanlage (die wir NICHT brauchten, wodurch wir 35 EUR hätten sparen können), schönes, sauberes Zimmer mit Balkon, TV (italienische Sender, Euronews und ein deutscher Sender), Bad und Frühstück. Das Frühstück wurde nur bis 9.30 Uhr serviert, und wenn man Orangensaft zum Frühstück trinken wollte, musste man extra bezahlen. Nachteilig war, dass es 15 Gehminuten von der Hauptstraße entfernt war, und dass die Dusche unglaublich klein war - um sich umzudrehen, musste man aus der Dusche gehen, wodurch das Bad nach dem Duschen sehr nass war! Check-out war schon um 10 Uhr, und wir baten darum, das Zimmer erst um 11 Uhr verlassen zu können, aber nein. Das war nicht möglich...

    Home from home

    from

    We, like others were not sure what to expect. No worries. We were greeted, after a long drive from Palermo by Roberto with " welcome you must be Mr ........... We were obviously the last to arrive! He then said our room was " catastrophe"( his little joke). Far from that, we had a nice clean and fresh room with aircon tv, nice bath shower and a double balcony with a view of the sea and sunrise every morning. All the family were friendly. The pool was nice, bar very reasonably priced, breakfast adaquate if a little limited. The location is perfect for town centre. Short stroll to the main street. Beaches a little way off from the whole town. Giardino Naxos is the best way to go for organised beds, changing and soft sand.

    With pool

    from

    Stayed 6 nights in august. Familyrun hotel with pool, small bar and very nice staff. The price was 100 euro with air-condition (which we did NOT need, and could have saved 35 euro on that), nice and clean room, with balcony, TV (italian channels, euronews and a german channel), bathroom and breakfast. The breakfast stopped at 09:030, and if you wanted orangejuice with your breakfast you must pay extra. The bad thing - it was 15 min walk from the main street and the shower were incredibly small - you had to go out to turn and that resulted in a very wet bathroom after showering! Check out was as early as 10:00, and we asked is we could check out at 11:00, but no. That was impossible...

    Nothing to worry about with this one

    from

    We stayed here for 4 nights in Mid may. I booked it online and was a little worried it may be a little basic. I was wrong a good 3 star hotel rooms decent size bathrooms likewise and very clean. Breakfast was fine usual bread cheese meat coffee etc not a buffet but lovely coffee which is more than can be said of some more expensive places I have stayed.

    Nice hotel in central location

    from

    The hotel soleado is situated in a quiet location, 5 minutes walk from the main corso umberto. It is only a 2 star hotel but had all the facilities we needed- car park, air con, sat tv, balcony, swimming pool and a friendly English speaking owner. The only drawback was that breakfast was rather basic and at times we were disturbed by noise from the adjoining rooms. But hey, we only paid just over £500 for two weeks' b & b in July so were more than satisfied with our stay.
