Taormina has a number of great places to visit, and the lady at the reception desk told us about them (and how to reach them) when we arrived. The hotel is in the old town, so most things were only a short walk away.
The hotel arranged a cab to take us up to Madonna della Rocca and to Castelmola, a small village much higher up the mountain than Taormina.
We had a room that looked out onto the beach far below us and on Etna in the distance. The view of Etna from the sixth floor restaurant, though, is even better. You sit at breakfast and watch the craters smoke.
The narrow streets around the hotel are charming.
If we go back to Taormina some day we will book at the Villa Paradiso.
