- Hotel Ariston description
The views across the Bay of Taormina from Hotel Ariston are amazing – grab a drink from the pool bar and enjoy! The hotel's close to the centre of Taormina, built into the hillside of Sicily's Ionian coast. It’s located at the foot of Taormina's Ancient Greek Theatre, where there’s often music events during the summer. It’s easy to walk down to the coast and Taormina Mare, but it’s even easier to take the nearby cable car. We recommend wandering across to the beautiful Isola Bella.
The hotel's La Terraza Restaurant is open throughout the summer. We love having dinner up here on the ‘sky terrace’. The food is delicious, mainly traditional Sicilian dishes, often with a backdrop of live piano music. You could spend hours and hours relaxing on the terraces that surround the pool. There are plenty of loungers and parasols. Nice shady spots are cast by the trees in the surrounding gardens and the pool bar is nearby. The bartender makes a mean Mojito with freshly picked mint from the garden.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 5 mins by private car from Catania airport.
