Carved into a rocky hillside in Taormina, the luxurious, five-star San Domenico Palace Hotel commands a stunning position on the iconic coastline with epic views over Mount Etna, the neighboring ancient Greek Amphitheatre and glittering Taormina Bay.  Previously a 15th century monastery, the exclusive hotel took on its current form in 1896, when the Prince of Cerami added a new Belle Époque wing, retaining much of its original monastic elements including two cloisters with stone columns and vine-covered walls. The 105 rooms and suites are housed in the beautifully restored convent or the main hotel wing, featuring high ceilings, 19th century furniture, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the cloister, garden, or Ionian Sea.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, the two-Michelin starred Principe Cerami run by Chef Massimo Mantarro, brings a Sicilian touch to refined haute cuisine. For added fare, the hotel houses Les Bougainvillées, serving Sicilian specialties and classic international dishes, and the poolside Il Giardino deo Limoni restaurant, offering Mediterranean dishes and stunning sea views.
