ABOUT THE HOTEL
Set high in the rocky hills on the east coast of Sicily, Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo has long been known as one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats.
The first hotel to be built in Taormina, it sits in the most perfect location, directly in front of the Greek Theatre. Sweeping views of the coastline and majestic Mount Etna stretch out beyond.
This heritage building is a landmark within its destination. Let Sicily come to you as you admire its gardens, savour sensational local cuisine and sit out on the Literary Terrace where generations of celebrated guests have gathered in the sun.
