The apartment is specious and comfortable but it's located just above the traffic circle. It's hard to sleep at night because of the cars and motorcycles outside the window. No parking space, so you have to pay extra 15 euro per day in Porta Catania (the biggest parking in the city located nearby) or park on unguarded small parking 10 minutes away from the apartment. If you want to relax, this is not a good choice.
A spacious lovely apartment run by a really nice guy. Located just outside Porta Catania. It was perfect for our vist to Taormina and Mount Etna.
The apartment is spacious and well equipped. The location of the apartment at the end of Corso Umberto is perfect with restaurants,gelaterias,bars ,coffee shops and a supermarket all within a short stroll. Corso Umberto however is very busy and so it can be noisy.Ezio is a wonderful host who does everything he can to make your stay as good as possible.
Ezio made every effort to ensure we were happy with the accommodation. The house is in walking distance of a craft beer bar, two excellent gelaterias, tiramisu restaurant, I could happily live here, yet alone stay on holiday. When I return to Sicily I will want to stay here. Totally recommended.
Ezio is a brilliant bloke who will help you in every way he can e.g. trying to get us into a garden not normally open to the public. This is his mum's pad, which he manages on her behalf, and looks like mum has just moved out, with all sorts of ornaments and decorations, and especially comfortable furniture dating from the 1960s which she probably sat or lay in before the pad became rentable. The nice thing about Ezio is that he's not fussy and does not inspect every nook and cranny for the slightest speck of dust when you leave. It's bang in the centre of Taormina on a very busy street above a gelateria and a bar and while it's exciting to see the world go by, at the weekend it can be noisy, and so ear-plugs are essential to dull the seemingly endless hubbub from the street.
