Belmond – Grand Hotel Timeo, A Belmond Hotel
With incomparable views over the bay and the slopes of Mount Etna, the Timeo is a haven of luxury surrounded by natural and historical wonders.
Few experiences in all of Italy can compare to an aperitivo on the terrace of the Grand Hotel Timeo, with breathtaking views sweeping down over verdant hillsides, the slopes of Mount Etna, and the azure waters of the Ionian sea. The first hotel to be opened in Taormina in 1873 – on the very doorstep of an ancient Greek-Roman amphitheater – the Timeo offers luxurious accommodation, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a panoramic swimming pool and lush, historic gardens predating the hotel itself. A stunning location, this is Mediterranean living at its most refined.
