    • To know

    • The San Domenico Palace enjoys an ideal location, a few steps away from old Taormina, with a view of the Etna. It overlooks the turquoise water and offers a striking view. Catane airport is 30 miles away.

    • The San Domenico Palace offers 105 rooms including 6 Junior Suites and 7 Suites. Some of these rooms are located in the old monks' cells. They have a special atmosphere. They are less spacious than the rooms of the grand hotel part built in 1896. They are decorated with old furniture (an imposing cupboard, a wooden writing desk) and lithographs. All rooms have TV, telephone, mini bar, safe and air-conditioning. The offer either a sea or garden view. The rooms in the grand hotel area of the hotel are larger, also decorated in an old style and offering TV, telephone, mini bar and air-conditioning. They have balconies or sundecks with deckchairs, chairs and a table. Bathtub, hair-dryer, welcome products and bathrobes are available in the bathrooms.
    • The San Domenico Palace is a hotel fitted out in a former Dominican 15th century monastery. You can still feel the bygone monastic atmosphere here. The decor, objects and furniture ...have been preserved. The sacristy has been well-maintained and you still can admire it nowadays. The church has been re-decorated for feasts, weddings or conferences. The monastery overlooks the sea and the Etna view here is fabulous. You can walk in the numerous gardens and patios, where porch swings invite you to relax. A pool with a view of the Etna is an ideal location to do a few long jumps. Different lounge areas have been placed in enormous high ceiling rooms. The bar is located in a large room fitted out with a fireplace and an aged paving. The height of the ceilings is impressive. Disproportional paintings of different sizes cover the walls. A fitness room is available and you can also pamper yourself with massages.

      The hotel is composed of two different parts: the monastery, dating back to the 15th century, where rooms are fitted out in the old monks' cells, and a more recent part dating back 1896, where the rooms are more spacious but less original.
    • For meals, the San Domenico Palace invites its guests to sample Sicilian and gastronomic cuisine in its three restaurants. The main restaurant ''The Bougainvilleas'' offers a large sundeck with a sea view. It is open for breakfast and dinner. The ''Principe cerami is the gastronomic restaurant of the hotel.
