How much contrast can there be on the island of Sicily in one day? Listen to this to believe it!
Fiona at L'Appodo delle Sirene in Siracusa bid us a warm goodbye after giving us a map and showing us the driving directions to Castello Eurialo, a viewpoint from which approaching armies from the sea could be seen. "Right after the cemetery …
This morning we took the ferry from Villa San Giovanni to Messina. One trip on a Greek ferry will convince you that BC Ferries gives us a good deal. The ferries seem to be privatized and although very frequent (40 minutes for this company) are not very clean and the access is very difficult - you get the tickets in one place and then go to another …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Schuler Taormina
We enjoyed our three nights at Villa Schuler in Taormina this October. The weather was hot and we appreciated staying in a junior suite with a big sea facing terrace with sunbeds. Some of the other sea facing rooms had just a small balcony. It was lovely looking over the bay watching the cruisers arriving. We even watched some fireworks on our last night!
From N.M.B. fl In Love with taormina,Sicily
Villa Schuler This is a place you have to see to belive i come from puertorican family and our house is on top of a montain and is beautiful but never have i seen this kind of beauty the View is unbeliveable ! the people are nice and the food and wine MaMa mia !
Love the hotel will be back !
Would have to agree with the other reviews here. We stayed for 5 days in July and fell in love with Taormina and Villa Schuler. It is situated in one of the best spots - fabulous views and one of the most centrally yet privately located places in the area.
What a find, even if there wasn't a pool; I prefer the beaches on vacations anyways. The hotel is very nice, comfortable, cosy and clean, and the staff so helpful and friendly. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the bay and Mt. Etna is stunning. The garden at the back is huge and very relaxing if you ever get tired of the sea views; I doubt you will. I highly recommend the Junior Suites on the third floor (I stayed in room 29), which have the best views, a terrace with awning and two sun loungers, bedroom and a separate sitting area. Bathroom, however, was a bit small and simple, but easily overlooked with all the other positives of the hotel. The location is superb as well, as it is only a few steps from the Corso Umberto, where most shops and restaurants are located, and also a great place for evening strolls. Do also check out the smaller streets and alleys as they also have plenty of quaint shops, restaurants and avoid the general crowds on the Corso. The bus terminal, funicular (cable car), public garden and Greek Ampitheatre are a short 5-10 mins walk away. The hotel is so central to everything it's perfect. Every restaurant we tried served a delicious and very filling meal and there were more than enough gellaterias serving incredible and mouth-watering gellatos (ice cream); I miss it all already. Definitely going back and am recommending to all my friends and family.
Wow wow wow! this place is incredible. We stayed for 3 days in the room with an ocean view... great balcony, great bed, great everything! felt like heaven after being in dirty, polluted Rome. Breakfast is AWESOME - overlooking the sea- the folks who run this and who work here are so nice and helpful and pleasant. One day i just relaxed in the courtyard/garden... so peaceful. This place is so worth the money, get the nice room with the view, you will be glad you did!
We couldn't have found a more lovely or convenient spot to start our vacation. The hotel is charming, clean and nicely appointed; very pleasant staff at reception, at breakfast and all other hotel staff.
Sicily gets a bad rap!
We have just returned from a trip to Sicily and feel that it certainly has a reputation that is not justified. We had a wonderful time, people were friendly and helpful despite the fact that we could not speak Italian.The Villa Schuller Hotel for example was clean, good value, perfectly situated and served a wonderful breakfast high up overlooking the water. The back has a gorgeous garden through which you walk up to the main street where every evening there is the best 'passigiato'. If you don't know what that is - look it up. We drove all around the island and found the same attitude everywhere even in Palarmo. I would return anytime.Sheila Kerr
Nice Garden, Bad room
We thought the villa itself was pretty and clean, with nice gardens, but got sick of not having a pool. It was incredibly hot when we visited, and the beach (by cable car or by shuttle bus) was a real hassle. Also, we had the worst room, #1, in a ground level courtyard.
It was very dark, and after a few days made us feel trapped in a bomb shelter. We left early and switched to another hotel. We also felt that the staff, while polite, was not overly friendly or helpful.
The Villa Schuler is a very friendly hotel with an excellent service.
The rooms are wounderfull, the garden is very loveley...
