In the heart of the town Taormina, in the vicinity of the Clock Tower and in the central Corso Umberto, we find the Hotel Metropole Maison d'Hôtes. It enjoys a striking panoramic view of the Bay, but the nearest beach is reachable only by car (about 10 minutes). The hotel is easily reachable from the international airport Catania – Fontanarossa, at a distance of 50 km. For those who prefer to travel by train, the railway station is Giardini Naxos, only 5 minutes away from the hotel.
The ancient palace dating back to 1700 that hosts the Metropole Maison d'Hôtes is a prestigious and exclusive building, symbol of elegance of the period of the Belle Epoque. The massive restoration that brought it to a new life in 2010, has preserved the historic architectural characteristics blending the modern design, with very nice furniture, with 17th century style features: beautiful marble stairs, great and very luminous volumes. The result is a 5-star boutique hotel featuring a unique and unmistakable context, a perfect combination between modern and classic style in the heart of the magic Taormina. From the amazing terrace, where the continental breakfast is served buffet style and where in the evening you can have a candle light dinner, the guests will let them be charmed by the stunning view over the bay of Taormina.
