Taormina hotels

Taormina is one of Italy's smartest tourist destinations, with hotels to match. There are plenty of opportunities for basking in luxury, but finding cheap accommodation requires a bit more work.

Taormina is a fairly expensive place to stay but shopping around in advance can find you some affordable accommodation options - especially if you avoid the peak summer season. Cheaper accommodation may not offer much in the way of breakfast, or of pleasant areas for relaxing, but the town itself has plenty of bars and public spaces to compensate. You should be sure to book in advance though, as Taormina is small and popular, and accommodation can fill up. If you have a car, check ahead as parking is hard to come by, and even hotels with parking spaces may charge you extra.

Taormina is on a steep slope high above the sea, and the hotels in the area fall into two categories: beach hotels down at sea level outside the town, and more central hotels better-suited for sightseeing and pottering the streets. Your choice of hotel may depend on the type of holiday you are planning, and whether you have a hire car.
