Hotel Review

Built within the original structure of a 14th Century Monastery, the San Domenico Palace Four Seasons Hotel offers you modern luxury perfectly balanced with the historic magnificence of Sicilian history. There is no more beautiful spot to bask in the evening sun as it sets on Mount Etna. The rooms are elegant and contemporary, most of them with balconies and stunning sea views. Although it retains the charm of the Old Monastery, the service and amenities are second to none in the rooms and in all restaurants and bars of the hotel. Dinner in the Principe Cerami Restaurant is the most spectacular and romantic spot you could wish to spend an evening in Taormina. You cannot but fall madly in love with the San Domenico Palace Hotel…
