Located in Taormina’s old town centre, Porta di Mezzo Luxury B&B takes its name from the city gate “Porta di Mezzo”, also known as “Torre dell’Orologio” (Clock Tower), which is just a few steps away, midway down Corso Umberto, the pedestrian shopping street and thoroughfare that leads to the panoramic Piazza 9 Aprile. The closest airport is Catania Fontanarossa, just 45 Km away. Il Picciolo Golf Club is 32 Km away.
The elegant building, adjacent to the Tower walls, features four stylish rooms that offer all the comforts of a luxury hotel. A traditional Taorminian house tastefully furnished with Sicilian-style period furniture, offering excellent attentive service.
The rooms are named after great men who have either honoured Sicily through their art or extolled Taormina’s beauty around the world.
