Villa Sant`Andrea Hotel, Sicily, Italy


Rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693, Sicily’s second city is remarkable for its magnificent, lava-built Baroque buildings and black volcanic flagstones. The city’s newly pedestrianised centre makes it the ideal place to stroll around and feel the buzz of Sicilian life.

Unmissable highlights include the Norman Duomo with a façade by Vaccarini, the Piazza del Duomo with its giant lava elephant statue and dramatic vistas of Mount Etna, and the famous fish market, where you can enjoy freshly grilled seafood and watch the local fishermen at work. The main street, Via Etnea, is also excellent for shopping.

Catania is only 30 minutes from Taormina and easily reached by car. Contact our concierge to organise your visit.
