TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Touring Messina
This hotel was close to the train, staff were very helpful, with limited english (not a great concern for us). First impression is its old. The decor is gothic & antique. The room was a good size, the bed a little hard. The biggest down fall is the hotel had a really strong cigarette smoke smell, couldn't stay for more than one night. Bteakfast was a simple coffee & croissant, but we were able to have it early before the train.

... Wandered around town while Kim shopped, and got a nice 5€ bottle red to drink while we caught up on emails, diaries etc. plenty of activity in town after siesta, but not as busy as morning. Typical old town, except that all buildings given over to tourism. I think locals have moved out. Dinner at restaurant recommended by Fabio just down the road called Tishca Toshca with traditional Sicilian food. Fantastic. Meatballs in ...
Taormina was everything and more than we expected. This small community about an hour north of Catania on the east coast of Sicily has great views of snow-capped Mount Etna. Our accomodations at the Villa Ducale Hotel were first class. The town was fun to stroll in. The public gardens were beautiful. The ...
... lava and beautiful autumn vegetation. We then passed into the lava flows of the 2001 eruptions, which are still just bare rock and ash. The backdrop to the snow capped summit was stunning. We went for a bit of a walk around some craters, freezing but luckily clear enough for some sensational views. Then abruptly the mist rolled on, it was brilliant. Suddenly I was by myself tramping towards Mordor. Inconceivable ...
