Live the high life in the Italian sun

On Our Doorstep
Built in the third century BC, the neighboring Greek Theatre is a historical marvel that has played host to centuries of cultural activity. Today, it enchants in the early morning sunlight and, come evening, plays host to open-air music performances and enchanting operatic stagings.
This wonderfully preserved amphitheatre, with Mount Etna as its backdrop, is every bit as captivating as the performances staged there. Grand Hotel Timeo was the first hotel in Taormina, built just a stone’s throw from fascinating ancient architecture. Harnessing the same mythic energy and historical significance of Taormina itself, ours is a place where history evolves with our storied surroundings.
Named for the 19th-century artist who put Taormina on the map, this Michelin-starred restaurant offers dishes bursting with creativity.
Showstopping views meet scene-stealing cuisine as our Chef serves up Sicilian dishes against a canvas of sea, sky and mountain.
Live cooking, organic dishes and stunning views await under the shaded pergola of our poolside eatery.
Take a seat beside the sun-splashed pool for a refreshing spritz or traditional cocktails.

Icon of the Island
A historical gem, the Greek Theatre is still a phenomenal venue for live music performances.
Our gardens were born before the hotel itself. They hold a storied a legacy handed down by Lady Florence Trevelyan, an Englishwoman exiled to Taormina at the end of the 19th century following a scandal at the court of Queen Victoria.
After falling in love with a Sicilian doctor, the couple were gifted the gardens you see today. At the dawn of the twentieth century, they were purchased by the Florestra family, who wanted to expand the grounds of the Timeo.
Today, the expansive six-acre gardens are a guest favourite. Spend a relaxing afternoon strolling among blooming bougainvillea, orange blossom and geraniums.
