Sweeping views of the coastline and majestic Mount Etna stretch out beyond. This heritage building is a landmark within its destination.

In the centre of Taormina, Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo boasts a prime location in front of the Greek Theatre, overlooking the Bay of Taormina and Mount Etna. Taormina is “a landscape in which you can find all that seems to be created on earth to seduce the eyes, mind and fantasy,” wrote Guy de Maupassant in 1885. Great writers such as Goethe and DH Lawrence were equally love-struck. Built on the cliffs of Mount Tauro, the town affords spectacular views of the rugged rocks, sandy coves and crystal waters. It offers a perfect viewing spot for sweeping panoramas of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest volcano.At night, the lights twinkling in Cape Taormina—the seaside area of town—and the curved Bay of Giardini Naxos are indescribably beautiful.
