Situated high above the cosmopolitan town of Taormina on the north east coast of Sicily, Villa Ducale has been created into a small charming boutique hotel boasting panoramic views over the terracotta rooftops towards the Mediterranean sea, encompassing the Straits of Messina and the Bay of Naxos with Mount Etna beyond.
Originally built as a luxury home, Villa Ducale now has 19 hotel rooms which have just been completely renovated in Italian design combining traditional Sicilian style with vibrant colours giving a contemporary look. There is a choice of room type but all have LCD TV with Sky channels and Pay TV, free WiFi, safe, minibar, independent air conditioning, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer, bathrobes, slippers and luxury toiletries.

Hotel Villa Ducale has stunning views, elegant guest rooms and a relatively close proximity to the centre of Taormina.
In 1990 Rosaria & Andrea Quartucci opened Villa Ducale with the ambition to create a boutique hotel that captured the very best of Taormina and Sicily and recently they have completely renovated the guest rooms.
All the rooms have wonderful sea views which can also be enjoyed from the panoramic communal terrace and there is a pool for relaxation.
This hotel is particularly suited to couples looking for a small boutique style hotel with panoramic views.
There is a free shuttle to the town. It is possible to walk into Taormina but please note that it will involve a steep climb!
