The apartment has a modern furnishing an is only a few steps away from the ancient Greek theatre and from the cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast (such as the famous Isola Bella). The apartment is in the centre of Taormina, but offers the tranquility and the views of a house at the sea. The apartment is located in a typical Italian 'palazzo', that has been subdivided in a couple of apartments.
The apartment is on the 1st floor (without elevator) and is divided in two levels. The first level consists of a bathroom, a modern kitchen with a dining table and seven chairs, a corner with 2 single sofa beds (both high quality), and windows with views on Taormina. The upper level consists of a bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom, and a bedroom with a single bed. From this level there is access to the terrace with a set of table and chairs and a view on the Ionian coast and some palm trees.
Taormina: Taormina has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. It has popular beaches on the Ionian sea, which is remarkably warm and has a high salt content. Beautifully restored medieval buildings, breathtaking views around every corner and a giddy network of winding streets strewn with shops, bars and restaurants make for a perfect holiday spot. Just south of Taormina is the Isola Bella, a nature reserve and a beautiful bay. Tours of the Capo Sant' Andrea grottos are also available. Taormina is built on an extremely hilly coast, and is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna. Many manifestations and events are organized during the summer in Taormina. The exceptional frame for pop and classical concerts, opera and important performances is the Ancient Theatre. Taormina is served by its very own cable car which ferries tourists to and from the seaside resorts down along the coast.
Exploring Mount Etna: Taormina is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Piedimonte Etneo, Castiglione and Francavilla di Sicilia and Randazzo are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below.
