Nearby Attractions

The hotel is in a great location in central Taormina, just a couple of minutes’ walk from Corso Umberto. This pedestrianised street is lined with chic boutiques, cafés and restaurants, with a fascinating architectural blend of Arabic, Norman, Gothic and Baroque styles.

It’s a 10-minute walk to both the spectacular Ancient Greek Theatre, which dates back to the 3rd century BC, and the pretty cathedral, the Duomo di Taormina. Other nearby historical sights include the dramatic hilltop Saracen Castle and the medieval Moorish-style Palazzo Corvaia.

The quickest way to get to the beach is the cable car which runs from the historic centre down to Mazzarò on the coast. Here you’ll find the famous Isola Bella, a small island that is sometimes connected to the mainland by a small strip of shingle.

Description

The NH Collection Taormina has just 63 elegant and contemporary rooms, many with a private sea view terrace or balcony. All rooms have a flatscreen TV, WiFi, Nespresso machine and mini bar, and the plush Presidential Suites also include a private Jacuzzi.

The views from the seventh floor infinity pool are pretty spectacular, and the terrace is also a great place to chill out in the sun. The hotel spa includes a sauna, steam bath and five treatment rooms, and there is also a gym.

Savour the Sicilian specialities and Italian classics on offer at the stylish Zagara restaurant, and enjoy carefully crafted cocktails, local wines and tasty snacks at the poolside Infinity Bar.

Gay Taormina

The man who really put Taormina on the map as a gay destination was the 19th century German photographer Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden, whose pastoral nude studies of young Sicilian men caught the imagination of artists and aesthetes around Europe. One early visitor lured to Sicily by these images was Oscar Wilde, who befriended von Gloeden and spent several months in Taormina. Other prominent gay visitors over the years include Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams and Cecil Beaton, and there is a street named after von Gloeden just a 10-minute walk from the NH Collection Taormina.
