Travel Blogs from Taormina
In Sicily I plan on seeing the both Roman and Greek ruins, especially at the Valley of the Temples, completing my trip from start to finish, allowing me to see how Italian culture began through the ruins and how it has progressed to modern day.
Here's a seaside destination that has it all! Taormina has perfect weather, spectacular views and Mt. Etna - AND pasta with anchovies and eggplant. Their little town is always bustling with tourists - their main street, Corso Umberto is lined with some of the most beautiful luxury shops I've ever seen. Naturally the prices are high, but …
The cone shape of the volcano was just visible as we came down to land in the coastal city of Catania on the beautiful island of Sicily.
It was late in the afternoon and Suzi and I were both tired from the flight. We knew we had a 60 minute wait for the bus, and that the transfer to Taormina would take over an hour. As the bus slowly made …
... Christ with a backdrop of house music... It was a bit random but nice to get to see catania in the evening.
Yesterday I had a whole day to "kill" at a leisurely pace, so I took a walk up to a park which was so lovely, and would have been great to sit in for an hour or two with a good book, had it not been for the flasher that I saw in the bushes! I mentioned it to a couple of blokes cleaning the pond and they said "that's catania, just go away from the ...
... have been in Taormina.We were not disappointed.
We have had a really enjoyable day at Taormina.The bus was easy. We caught an Etna Transport bus at Centro, not far from the railway station (ask there for directions) for E 8.80 each, ($ 14.50) for the return trip, leave at 8 or 9am, back on the 2pm with time to spare. Not intending to carry on, but the cruise tour charges $49 for the same trip!The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Carlotta Taormina
Villa Fabbiano is a wonderful hotel well situated in Taormina. Very nice breakfast with a fabulous view on the rooftop terrace.
A wonderful hideaway
We had a wonderful stay at the Villa Fabbiano in beautiful Taormina, Sicily. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Fabbiano, are on the scene to ensure that the guests enjoy themselves. The multilingual staff is cheerful and helpful. The hotel has a lovely secluded garden and pool and great views of the sea. The location is excellent so that a car is not needed--five minute walk to the bus station, and 10 minutes to Taormina's very good restaurants. A highlight of the hotel is the delicious and varied breakfast offering served on the open-air rooftop terrace.
Villa Fabbiano was wonderful - breakfast is served on the top floor with an outside terrace so you have 180 degree view over the sea. Service was faultless - the staff could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend it in terms of location too. The pool was very clean and the balconies with sea views were very spacious. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed the Villa Fabbiano
We enjoyed this hotel, my wife and I stayed there the last week of April 2005. The room was really nice, a good size with sea view, very comfortable bed, plenty of storage and hanging space. The breakfast is excellent with stunning view of Etna. An easy 10 minute strolls into town for dinner (although some of the best places to eat were closest to the hotel). The staff were very friendly and helpful, we would definitely go back and we would recommend it to anyone. The only problem is parking but that's the same all over Sicily.
Just returned from our very enjoyable 3 night stay at the Villa Fabbiano. We were totally impressed by the loacation, helpfullness of management and staff alike, immaculate cleanliness, and overall decor of the hotel.
Quirky charm and outstanding service
in march, my family and I spent three delightful nights at Villa Fabbiano in Taormina, Sicily. We found this small hotel to have lots of quirky charm, perched high on a hill overlooking the ocean. The young staff was outstanding. They were so attentive and it seemed like they couldn't do enough to make our stay more pleasant. Sr. Francesco Fabbiano, who with his wife, runs the Villa, helped us arrange a memorable dinner off-site and provided lots of good sightseeing ideas. The breakfast offered on the top floor is one of the best! Kudos to this fine establishment and the people who are dedicated to making it so!
The hotel seems nice but none is italian there : they have asians ,german ,swiss staff but if I go to Sicily I want to meet locals and want to stay in a local place not feel in the cold German black forest . They have a rude attitude towards Americans and although they had free rooms they did not want to accomodate us . A place to avois at all costs !
Small boutique hotel loved the Villa Fabbiano
Beautiful small boutique hotel at the entrance of Taormina. Seaview room a must try to get Room 202 if you are a single or a double with not to much luggage. fantastic terrace You can sea ocean and Mt Edna. Hospitality very warm and helpful. Price is right too. Breakfast buffet very generious. Newly renovated. Great location.
We're just back in Holland. We had a wonderful stay in Villa Fabbiano. It's a beautiful hotel on one of those big hills in Taormina. The people are friendly, the rooms are beautiful and it's quiet over there and the views are wonderful. That's what we like. When you take a short walk then you're in the city, where you can eat, drink etc.
This is a recommendation!
I spent two nights with my girlfriend at the Villa Fabbiano in May 2004 and I would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone looking for an unusual and incredily romantic getaway. The hotel is in the style of a beautiful mock-castle and includes some original Bysantine brickwork inside it's hallways and gardens. The hotel enjoys a fantasic position overlooking the Bay of Naxos and is only a short 10 minute walk from the main high-street with its numerous restaurants. We stayed in a standard double room with sea-view and balcony which was spacious and bright with high-ceilings, stone floors and which had a wonderful wrought iron bed. The homemade buffet breakfast is delicious and is served from a roof-top terrace with spectacular views of Etna.
