From a personal Catania Airport transfer to the best hotels and restaurants. Enjoy a luxurious holiday in Taormina for that special event.
Taormina is a beautiful hilltop town located near Mount Etna on the east coast of Sicily. The city and the island are brimming with ancient historical sites, craggy coastlines and soft sandy beaches. Sicily is a wonderful destination for any reason but it is very perfect for a romantic escape.
To genuinely celebrate in style, start by pre-booking a personal Catania airport transport to whisk you off to one of Taormina’s most exclusive hotels, the San Domenico Palace Hotel. From that point, not only will you have excellent service and luxurious accommodation, but also access to three of the island’s greatest and top-rated restaurants.
The San Domenico Palace Hotel
The San Domenico Palace Hotel is just stunning and the perfect lodging to play host to what will surely be one of your most memorable vacations. Located in the centre of bustling Taormina, this hotel was originally a 15th century convent. Its understated façade welcomes you into a cool and quiet interior that exudes elegance and sophistication and leaves the throng of the streets behind you. Although the establishment has 105 rooms, every one is attended to meticulously with lavish amenities and no details left un-touched.
The San Domenico Palace Hotel offers all the modern conveniences you may want in its historic walls. However, the hotel’s crowning jewel is its epically stunning terraced gardens that gently slope down to the blue sea beneath. The endless ocean views are mesmerising and may easily steal away your whole holiday!
Your Catania airport transport should only take about an hour . Once you arrive at the hotel, you may also start planning your exploration of Sicily’s gastronomic delights; the San Domenico Palace Hotel has immediate access to three Michelin-starred restaurants which could all be perfect for an elegant evening of celebration.
The restaurant’s history is nearly as old as the hotel itself and it is named after the Sicilian nobleman who converted the monastery in the first place.
And, of course, no meal would be complete without a breath-taking view of the endless turquoise ocean laid out before you. For this exceptional kind of entertainment you won’t be let down by a table on the patio with a perfect view of the evening’s sunset.
The owner/chef Pietro d’Agostino creates artwork with every dish. Sicilian cuisine has an eclectic influence of flavours originating from North Africa, Spain and Italy. La Capinera catches this kaleidoscope of taste sensations and delivers them in a dish that’s so beautiful that it may feel like a crime to eat it! Again, the service, cuisine and of course the beautiful terrace to dine upon create La Capinera a superb location for an adventurous, yet romantic dinner.
Osteria Rosso di Vino — Situated in the heart of Taormina, this rustic style concept restaurant could define the meaning of’fresh’. Their menu changes daily and is dependent upon the best ingredients that can be found in the local market that day. The setting and décor exude a romantic and cosy atmosphere with an open-style kitchen. The opportunity to watch the chefs make their gastronomic works-of-art alongside live musical performances makes for the perfect romantic evening. The owners of Osteria Rosso di Vino strive to make each and every guest feel welcome and hope to share their passion for Sicilian cuisine with all who see.
