Grand Hotel Timeo for a Special Sicily Vacation
Pleasantly tucked away from the bustling centre of Taormina, set high in the rocky hills in a private park full of exotic trees and plants, facing the ancient Greek-Roman theatre of Taormina, on the east coast of Sicily, the Grand Hotel Timeo has long been known as one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats.
The Grand Hotel Timeo dates back to 1873 and successfully recreates the atmosphere and splendour of a bygone era. Now, part of the Orient-Express group, Taormina’s first hotel is surrounded by luxurious parkland filled with olive and cypress trees, magnolias and bougainvillea.
From its elevated position the hotel commands breathtaking views over brooding Mount Etna and the sun-drenched resorts along the coastline. Stroll through verdant grounds in the footsteps of illustrious guests to the fabled Literary Terrace. Rooms and suites recall the magnificence of Sicilian Baroque and boast a terrace or balcony to maximize the vistas. The elegance continues into The Restaurant where Mediterranean dishes are a specialty. Meet up in the indoor bar designed to evoke the atmosphere of a nineteenth century winter garden, or at the snack bar by the heated outdoor swimming pool, serving pizzas from a brick oven. A property of great historic interest comprised of atmospheric buildings and beautiful grounds, the Grand Hotel Timeo’s great service and friendly staff will ensure you have a unique Sicily vacation in Taormina.
