Welcome to Sicily, an island full of art
The very central position of our hotel is very much appreciated by all of our guests. All attractions can be reached by a short walk. Also the cableway which leads to the Taormina beaches is located at a few hundred meters. The Isola Bella and Mazzarò with their marvelous beaches and clear water are part of the protected WWF areas. From the cableway a little path will lead you to the sea at just 25/30 minutes.
The Vello d'Oro is situated in the heart of the historical center. Its privileged position on a small hill over the main shopping street, the Corso Umberto, offers guests an extraordinary view on the sea and as well on the Monte Tauro, the famous Teatro Greco, the Naxos Bay and mount Etna.
