Hotel Villa Diodoro 

Villa with views

Classically elegant, this traditional villa makes an ideal base to explore historic Taormina.

Perched high on the hillside with sweeping views over the Bay of Naxos to Mount Etna, Villa Diodoro is a real gem. The heart of Taormina is just moments away but inside the beautifully maintained and fragrant Mediterranean gardens, it feels like a private oasis.

Why we love Hotel Villa Diodoro

Dining here is focused on fresh, locally inspired Mediterranean cuisine, with a smattering of international favourites and the occasional buffet.

Restaurant Bellavista
With views over Mount Etna and Naxos Bay, Diodoro's main restaurant specialises in Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine.

Pool Bar
Serving refreshments and light lunches poolside.

Bar Il Vecchio Carrubo
Named after the ancient carob trees that surrounds the terrace, this is the place for afternoon tea, aperitifs and evening cocktails.

We love the setting of Bar Il Vecchio Carrubo especially in the early summer evenings where your pre-dinner drinks are often accompanied by music.
