Immersed in the nature, history and ancient traditions of this land, Villa Ducale is the ideal base for visiting Taormina, a town which attracted poets, artists and cinema stars and which today still represents one of the most valuable pearls in Sicily. The strategic position held by the Hotel Villa Ducale allows it to combine the convenience of being close to the town center, with the tranquility of finding yourself away from the bustle of the town. The town center of Taormina can be reached in about 10/15 minutes on foot, or using the hotel`s free bus service or one of the town council`s buses which stop right in front of the Hotel.
Taormina, with its spectacular Greek Theatre and its Arab-Norman buildings, is not the only site not to be missed. Not far from the Hotel, you will find Castelmola, an ancient Medieval village, Isolabella, an uncontaminated oasis and Etna, a paradise for naturalists and lovers of good food: the former will dedicate their time to climbing the volcano, while the latter will have the chance to taste some of the typical food and wine products from the area.
The Hotel Villa Ducale in Taormina is to be found in a genuine aristocratic, Sicilian villa from where you can admire a unique and spectacular view: on one side the vast, calm crystal sea extends out, while on the other Etna rises up, surrounded by a luscious vegetation which invites you to explore.
A romantic and relaxing place, immersed in nature and rich in history and traditions: ideal for lovers and for those who wish to regenerate themselves in magical, exclusive surroundings.
Everything is taken care of in the smallest detail to offer our guests an unforgettable stay.
The external areas are a celebration of nature: the terrace where breakfast is served, allows you to appreciate a spectacular view, while the delightful Mediterranean garden is dominated by the typical colors and perfumes of this land.
Internally, the Hotel has perfectly preserved the authentic atmosphere of a Sicilian villa: from the use of material such as terracotta, wrought iron and painted ceramics, to the warm, friendly welcome, offered in a sophisticated but informal context.
