Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has long been known as a 'melting pot' of ancient cultures, due to its location on the major Mediterranean shipping routes. The landscape of Sicily is beautiful and varied.
In the north-east, where your hotel is located, Mount Etna with its fertile slopes and valleys supports a number of vineyards. In the south-east there are the beautiful forest-covered mountains; the landscape characterised by soft hills, with vineyards, olive groves, almond trees, citrus and the characteristic carob trees.
Sicily has many lovely sandy beaches and a wealth of holiday towns and villages, of which Taormina is considered one of the most sophisticated and desirable. Walking its streets, full of restaurants, elegant boutiques and artisan shops is no less exciting than attending shows at the Greek Theatre, entering the Duomo of San Nicola or admiring the sunset from the terrace overlooking the Gulf from Piazza IX Aprile.
Thanks to its location, the Main Palace Hotel is the perfect hotel for a seaside holiday, letting you enjoy the art and culture of Taormina, Catania and Syracuse and discover spectacular natural landscapes of the Etna or Alcantara Parks.
