Hotel Villa Ducale

All guests must be aged 6 or over. When making a reservation, please include any guests aged 6 or over within the number of adults.

Between Mount Etna and the Mediterranean Sea, a home away from home overlooking Taormina

Situated in an elevated position above Taormina, life in Hotel Villa Ducale revolves around its stunning terrace. From here you can enjoy the most wonderful views across the Taormina coastline and Mount Etna and relax over a gorgeous Sicilian buffet breakfast, created daily with only the freshest of produce. This romantic retreat blends authentic charm with modern designer style and staff who make every stay extra special.

Relax in the hotel's serene gardens or head out to one of the quiet beaches nearby. But the views are the feather in this hotel’s cap. Gaze at Giardini Naxos Bay, the Straits of Messina and Mount Etna from your bedroom – or the panoramic terrace. Here, afternoons are made for coffee and cake, while cocktail hour is at 6pm. Nibble complimentary canapés, clink glasses and say ‘salute’ as the sun goes down and candlelit tables pop up for dinner. Chef Santina inherited her grandmother’s passion for cooking, and her delicious cuisine celebrates local, organic ingredients.

The ancient ‘Greek Theatre’. The picture-perfect public gardens. Taormina is brimming with historical sites and contemporary charm – and Villa Ducale is close to it all. Hop on board the hotel’s shuttle into the town one day, and to a quiet beach the next. Then there are boat rides, wine tasting sessions and private cooking lessons to enjoy. The Hotel Villa Ducale team will happily suggest sightseeing hotspots – or fix up a guided tour.


Enjoy your stay!

Excellence in a cozy,warm Sicilian hospitality

Best views in Taormina are the setting of an exquisite, yet so homey display of everything what an experience away from home should be like.
