Set high in the rugged hills of Taormina on Sicily’s eastern coast, the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo is one of Sicily’s most glamorous retreats. Positioned in Taormina town, it is in an ideal location for exploring the pretty cobbled streets or the ancient Greek amphitheatre. Many of the rooms and the restaurants have wonderful terraces looking out towards the sea with magnificent views of Mount Etna on the horizon.
