#taorminahotel   #taorminaboutiquehotels   #hotelvilladucaletaormina  : History and charm with modern day luxury” a beautiful review about Hotel Villa Ducale #taormina   :
Not only are the Taormina bay and Mount Etna views stunning but the decoration and ambiance are in excellent taste. Our upgraded junior suite with its own terrace was not only comfortable but combines that Italian charm and history with modern-day luxury. The breakfasts are lovely and the dinner delicious. The personalised attention by the staff, always willing to help and provide advice, as well as excellent service really made us feel like we were staying with friends. The best hotel in Taormina! www.villaducale.com

Easter in Taormina means experiencing traditions, both sacred and profane. For example, the procession of Good Friday represents the culmination of Holy Week. It involves all the lights of the shops of Corso Umberto (the main street of Taormina) being turned off and the illumination provided by naked flames hanging from the walls, so creating a sacred atmosphere. 

You can hear only the noise of foosteps during the procession. The women of the town are dressed in black adorned with a purple necklace with its heart-shaped paper pendant. The  Children are dressed in white with a veil on their heads as they carry their gifts to Jesus. 

The men are dressed in black with a small red scarf around the neck and carry on their back the 'vare' or 'misteri' The duration of the procession is about 2 hours. 

For the occasion the churches of the town on are decorated in various themes such as the grain that dies to then germinate, or the Last Supper, the washing of the feet, the testament of Jesus, the sacrifical lamb, the mother particiapting in the Passion of her son 
and the suffering slave.

Every 9 July is the Day of our Patron Saint, San Pancrazio. He is celebrated with beautiful floral parades lining the old streets of the city. The occasion is also marked by a prcssion where a statue of Saint Peter is carried through the streets to meet a statue of Saint Pancras. Both of them then remain in the Cathedral until the 9th July

#taorminaboutiquehotels   #taorminahoneymoon   #taorminaromanticbreak  “Romantic Week End” :

This Taormina luxury boutique hotel was the perfect place to relax. Amazing views on the Mediterranean sea and the Mount Etna. Great food and perfect service. Lovely and large bedroom. The staff was very friendly, professional and always ready to help - advise.
Appreciated very much the flowers and bottle wine in our bedroom, a very nice surprise for my wife's birthday. La classe.
Located up in the hills of Taormina , there are free shuttles but the best is to walk pass the church and down to the city centre of Tarmina. Great views, we simply fell in love with it !

On  the dinner tables of Sicily expect to see an infinite number of sweets which are  symbolic of religious tradition. A real joy to the eye and palate are the Easter breads and the Easter Cuddura (a biscuit-shaped almond bun on which are placed one or two eggs. The  Picureddi are the classic marzipan sheep. All these dolci can also be bought in the numerous pastry shops and bakeries. #dolci   #pasqua2015   #sicily   #taormina

There's a very special exhibition in Taormina this month. It's called 'Made in Warhol' and runs from 21 March to 7June when the season officially begins here. #warhol  Come along to Palazzo Cornaja to see it ... and of course stay with us!

Our mansard suite is very special and very cozy. It is especially loved by honeymooners and our returning guests and offers a fantastic private terrace with a 180° degrees view of the stunning Mediterranean sea below as well as Mount Etna. #taormina #sicily.
