Budget accomodation in Taormina or Giardini Naxos

by malaluna

Hello,

coming to Catania early August and need some budget accomodation in Taormina or Giardini Naxos (youth hostels, B&B etc). Grateful for any information.
Cheers.

RE: Budget accomodation in Taormina or Giardini Naxos

by Ckuschel

I was there a few years ago. I don't have any specific places to stay but I think Naxos is better than Taormina for budget staying. Taormina is quite expensive and has Sicily's most expensive hotels. Also, even though they're close, Taormina and G.Naxos are completely different, so you should think about what you are looking for. Giardini Naxos is on the sea, with a bunch of hotels right on the beach, making it very convenient if that's what you'll be doing. On the other hand, it's not a very picturesque town. Taormina is a beautiful, quaint Sicilian town, but it's way above sea level, making beach access more difficult. I'd say G.Naxos probably has a better nightlife.
Hope that helps a little.

Budget doesn't go well in the same sentence with Taormina, especially in August.

But if you are happy to stay in Catania and drive (Taormina is 30 minutes away by car) you may get out with very nice fares as the city isn't that popular in August.

Tell you what? rent a convertible and drive along the coast and up to the mountain!

See my hotel tips for Catania.

Cheers,
mac

I'm probably too late for this but there is a string of small towns between Catania and Taormina which are much cheaper and more local than beautiful Taormina. But yes, if you want to be in nearby Giardini, the budget hotels are probably the ones close to the centre and inland rather than seafront. There were several such small ones although often occupied by charter tourists. But Giardini is indeed more convenient for seeing the rest of Sicily as you don't have the 20 minute climb up/down the mountain every time you want to sightsee.

Travel Tips for Taormina

View of Taormina II

by sandysmith

The other vantage point for Taormina is near the castello - which sits on another hilltop above Taormina. Just before the steps which climb up to the castello (currently closed) keep going along the lane to the church of Madonna della Rocca and you'll reach a viewpoint with IMHO the best view of Taormina - and a different angle to that of Castelmola. Steps lead down from here back in to Taormina with the typical station of the cross on the corners as the path zig zags down.

"Theotokos"

by Kushelkitten

"Theotokos" means "The Mother of God". If you want to see her you need to go inside the passagway of the old clock tower in Taormina. As you pass through, if you are coming from the old town center it is on the left.

By now you are wondering what the "Theotokos" is. It is a Byzantine mosaic icon which has been perfectly preserved. Absolutely breathtaking!

Exploring around Etna and visiting North-East Cost

by LysDor

This is the time of the year where it is good to go away from cold/dark/snowy Finland and enjoy the sun a little bit more South :-)!
Again this was a short 5 days trip and I managed to get the flu for 2 days, so not much of hiking there even if planned.

For locals its winter time with temperatures around 20C degrees. It was funny to watch their surprise as I was wearing corsair pants and T-shirt while they were wearing winter coats.

The sun was hot, I burned my nose but the cool wind forced me to use my sweatshirt quite often. Anyhow, these little things did not prevent me to fully enjoy my little vacation on this wonderful island.

The panorama pictures has been taken from the top of Castelmola (530m) down Taormina and the Ionian sea. On the far right, behind some clouds (you can't avoid them) is Etna.

"To have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all - for Sicily is the key to everything."
