I had booked a 5 night stay for my boyfriend and I in Taormina during Thanksgiving week. My hotel reservation was confirmed in early September so I went ahead and booked international flights, excursions etc. Just yesterday I got an email that the hotel has decided to close during the month of November this year! I now have thousands of dollars invested into this trip and am unsure what to do. Is this common in this area at this time of year? I was aware that it will be off-season and that it would be quieter and perhaps less things would be open but will it be completely shut down? The easiest solution would be to book into another hotel in the area given that our flights are already booked but I can't risk having this happen again.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
