Discover Taormina

Via Nazionale 137, 98039 Taormina Mare, Sicily, Italy

Taormina is a timeless jewel on the shores of the Ionian Sea. This heavenly spot appears polished and orderly at first sight. But make no mistake, the landscape rules here, wild and untamed. The imposing presence of moody Mt Etna instills a sense of grandeur, unsurpassed by any man-made endeavour. But, the town itself is a charming attempt to keep pace. Elegant residences cling to the slopes of Mount Tauro, spilling down to the bay at Giardini Naxos. Grecian ruins stand proudly, unphased by the passing of centuries.

Villa Sant’Andrea holds prime position among any hotel in Taormina. Sicily is renowned for its pretty bays and you’ll find us curved around the cove of Mazzarò. Remote, sheltered and stunningly beautiful, our very own slice of Sicily is yours to enjoy. With Belmond, Taormina is a portal to a more elegant age—a world of glittering indulgence that never has to end.
