Description from the manager
A lovely ground floor maisonette, the Suite, is an attractive pied à terre in the medieval center of Taormina, one of Sicily’s most renown towns.

Taormina, Sicily, Italy
Additional Location Information
This part of the island offers a number of wonderful places to visit on daytrips or excursions, including Taormina, Catania, Syracuse, Noto and the utterly unforgettable volcanic peak of Mt. Etna. Mt. Etna is Europe's highest active volcano and Sicily's highest mountain. Don't miss the chance to explore Sicily's greatest natural attraction via guided excursions.
Taormina, one of the most famous towns in Sicily, is located high atop Mount Tauro. The magnificent Mediterranean blue bay and the nearby, often smoldering Mt. Etna, combine into a spectacular view that can be seen from almost any point in Taormina. This town is important for its archaeological location with incredible history—it is home to one of the most famous Greek Theaters in the world. This significant theater is host to "Taormina Arte," the town's annual summer international arts festival of film, music, dance and theatre. Taormina is a haven for tourists, offering many restaurants, bars, discos, entertainment and sports. Take a stroll along the Corso and be sure to stop into one of the local cafés for a taste of granita and a piece of frutta martorana.
Syracuse was a featured setting in Giuseppe Tornatore's film "Malena", starring Monica Bellucci, and is a city rich with history and artistic presence. Since 1914 from early May to the end of June the city has staged ancient comedies and tragedies in its Greek theatre. A stroll through the streets of Ortigia leads to the fascinating baroque cathedral that incorporates an ancient temple to Athena. Don't miss the Fountain of Arethusa, site of the Greek legend.
Noto is the undisputed capital of Sicilian Baroque. Generally listed as one of the 'must-see' tourist attractions of this part of Sicily, the town was declared humanity heritage by UNESCO in 2002. Here you can enjoy the most beautiful beaches of the island: Cala and Pozzallo, Eloro or Cala Mosca inside the natural reserve of Vendicari, which is also home to thousands of migrating flamingos and sea turtles nest on its beaches. Not to miss in Noto is the famous and suggestive "Infiorata", a picturesque festival to welcome the spring where local artists work overnight to prepare colorful real flower carpets all over the streets. Nearby Noto, other sites worth visiting (by car) include Noto Antica, the older town, Modica, Palazzo Acreide, Ragusa, a similarly-appealing Baroque town, the necropolis at Pantalica and Ispica Caves.
