Romance reigns at Metropole Taormina, an 18th-century Sicilian palace come bespoke haven. The infinity pool may be new, but the genteel nature that drew royalty has been here from day one.

Order cocktails on the terrace, and drink in views of the town, the Greek theatre, and the bay.
Trees, brush, and grasses cling to the Sicilian cliffs along the historic shores of Taormina. Some have likely been there since the 1800's - something in common with Metropole Taormina, a storied palace here on the Corso Umberto.

It's easy to see why Metropole Taormina was (and is again) so popular with society's upper crust. Stunning cliff-top views set the scene for fresh, local fine dining, an elegant blend of modern and classic design features, and a cast iron glassed-in garden that once played regular host to one Kaiser Wilhelm II.

Down at the private beach, the sand is soft, and the lapping waters gentle. Up at the Infinity pool, the views are dizzing, and the bar service is habit-forming. Relax in the healing hamman before curling up with a classic read in the library.

The 23 individually designed rooms and suites range from delightful to flat out decadent. High ceilings and period details mix with chic marble, tufted leather headboards, and all the modern amenities you could want.

For travellers intent on exploring the world outside, the trip won't be taxing, as Metropole Taormina is a quick jaunt from Taormina’s Clock Tower and famous Piazza IX Aprile.
