Your Destination —
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, 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.
To the west the landscape becomes gentler with soft, rolling hills, and it is here one finds long sandy beaches. The weather is mild all year round and temperatures will not normally go below 15 degrees, even in the coldest months. Sicily has many lovely sandy beaches and a wealth of holiday towns and villages.
The chic resort town of Taormina is Sicily's most popular summer destination and boasts a superb array of restaurants and bars. Perched on the side of a mountain, this historic town is an achingly beautiful spot with gorgeous medieval churches, a stunning Greek theatre and sweeping views over the Gulf of Naxos and Mt Etna.
Your Hotel —
A few steps away from the centre of Taormina and the Greek-Roman theatre, the Monte Tauro Hotel overlooks the stunning Sicily sea with a view that spans from the Gulf of Naxos to the Etna volcano.
Built into the cliff face, with wonderful views, Hotel Monte Tauro is a unique fusion of ultra-modern design and luxury. This futuristic-style hotel has recently been refurbished and now has a vibrant and quirky look. The unusual design of the hotel means that only corridors are located at the back so the public areas and bedrooms all benefit from the lovely views over the flower filled terraces tumbling down to the sea below.
Offering a large panoramic swimming pool with a jacuzzi corner and diving board, a restaurant with a view of the Gulf of Naxos, a grill bar, sun terrace with hydro-massage corner and a shuttle service to the nearby beach, the Monte Tauro Hotel has everything you could want from a relaxing, sunshine holiday.
For all sea lovers, the hotel also offers exclusive shuttle boats that take gusts to the most beautiful beaches in the area, so that you can discover the hidden beauty of Sicily.
