Hotel Ariston details
The Hotel Ariston is an old-fashioned grand hotel with a spectacular cliff-top location in Taormina on Sicily. Outside you’ll enjoy a lovely freeform pool set on a hillside terrace amid gorgeous rocky gardens filled with mature trees and flowering plants. From your lounger on the sun terrace you can appreciate the view of the Med below – or you can jump in the cable car and head down to the beach. Naturally, the hotel restaurant shares the stunning view, serving buffet breakfasts and a la carte lunch and dinner. There’s also a relaxing lounge bar that features live piano music.
The bedrooms at the Ariston are bright and modern, with air conditioning, satellite TV and tea and coffee facilities; upgrades to sea view rooms, balcony rooms and superior rooms are available. On the hill above the hotel stands an ancient Greek theatre, a constant reminder of the island’s long and colourful history; the shops, restaurants and bars of Taormina are just a five minute walk away.
