Etna Coast Hotels

More than 3,000 m high, Etna dominates the eastern coast of Sicily and still today determines its geographical aspect. The activity of mount Etna has shaped a volcanic rocky coastline, running from the black stones of Praiola and San Giovanni Li Cuti, to the spectacular Cyclops’ Riviera. The territory can also boast of splendid nature areas such as the Etna Park, the Nature Oasis of Simeto, and the Valley of the Alcantara River with its Gorges
 
Set between sea and sky, Taormina is without doubt the jewel of this stretch of the coast. The Pearl of the Ionian Sea is set on a natural terrace 200 m above sea level, with its unique profile consisting of colourful noble residences, sumptuous Mediterranean gardens and the remains of a rich and complex past. 
One of the key stopovers of the ‘Grand Tour’, Taormina was the target of pilgrimage by scions of the noble houses of all Europe and still today it bears the imprint of this exclusive cultural trait
 
Among the other attractions on offer in the territory is a lively night life, with eclectic Catania at its heart. The inimitable jewel of Sicily’s Baroque, this city also merits a long exploration by day.

Where to stay in Eastern Sicily 
In the area of Etna, you will find charming country hotels and accommodation structures set in the heart of still-operating farms or adapted from rural residences and buildings. Attractive Taormina on the other hand offers fine luxury hotels just a few steps from the sea. 
 
When to visit Eastern Sicily 
Choose the summer months if your target is a seaside holiday, the rest of the year if you wish to explore the historical, artistic and nature aspects of Eastern Sicily, without the somewhat oppressive heat of the summer months.
