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. Breakfast was a simple coffee & croissant, but we were able to have it early before the train.

... top, we walked along the edge next to two craters, I had lunch at this stop (arancini, coffee and canoli cake). Nice sunny day today. We spent some time waiting for the English people to get back to the bus, thought we had lost them! Next stop was an underground cave, we were issued with a hard hat and torch. Last stop was to ...
Breakfast in the hotel, great breakfast at this hotel, home made croissants etc. This hotel is in a great position with great views, just a little tired, the rooms need updating. We walked to the chairlift to get it to the top where the ancient town of Taormina is, we walked around and took photos and had lunch at the Trattoria Piazza Badia, very nice meal. Lunch was antipasto with ...
