Villa Regina is a family-run inn with a view of the Bay of Taormina, whose city center is within easy reach along a magnificent nature path surrounded by the fragrances typical of the Mediterranean underbrush.

Off the beaten tourist track, the Villa Regina offers guests a relaxing vacation full of charm, near some of Sicily's greatest tourist attractions like Etna and the captivating Alcantara Gorges.

Villa Regina is located in the old town, near the little old church of San Giorgio on a promenade. It is the ideal spot to spend days relaxing and enjoying romantic hours gazing at the sea and the wonderful Taormina bay, a place of extraordinay natural beauty. As a matter of fact, the building is strategically located in a peaceful location that also provides a scenic point of view as well as a small garden. Our concern is to help the visitors spend their holiday in a peaceful environment. For those in touch with nature we suggest excursions to the volcano Etna or trekking in the marvelous landscape of the gole dell’Alcantara (Alcantara's gorges). Moreover, in a day it is possible for the visitor to go on short trips to Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Siracusa or Piazza Armerina or Agrigento where, among theaters and ancient villas, it is easy to find the numerous historical sites of the sicilian island.
