We spent 5 nights in Anita's apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We found it to be as advertised. Although my wife is a light sleeper, she was not bothered at all by noise, although the experience of others may differ. The location is fantastic. Anita is a great hostess who was always available to answer questions or provide suggestions. Were we to return to Taormina, we would 100% rent Anita's apartment again.

My husband and I have been traveling around the world for 12 months and have stayed at many Airbnbs -- our stay at Anita's lovely apartment is a highlight of our travels! Her light-filled, art-filled place is in a perfect location overlooking the Corso Umberto, completely furnished (including Prosecco in the fridge) and so comfortable. We could walk to all the sites in the Old City and she helped plan a tour to Mt. Etna. A highlight of our stay was the cooking class she arranged at Red and White! We had a memorable Valentine's Day with Gianluca and his chef -- first we went to the market to help Gianluca buy the ingredients for our meal, then we worked side by side in the open kitchen with his chef to prepare our lunch, finally we enjoyed the three course meal (each course paired with the prefect wine)! Outstanding! We strongly recommend Anita's place when you are fortunate to visit the beautiful city of Taormonia!

Anita's apt was superb. She was very helpful in directing us from the airport to the apartment and provided us with some great restaurant suggestions. Anita's home is right on the main pedestrian street and the location is outstanding. You can walk to any near by restaurant/bar/activity and the apartment is decorated beautifully. If we are ever in Taormina again we would jump at the chance to stay at her apartment. She made our honeymoon a great time to remember.

Wow, what an incredible gem, right in the heart of Taoromina! Just as the apartment states, the location is truly spectacular. The bustling city core is just outside the door, but the apartment provides the perfect "home base" to come back and relax at. Open the french doors and step on to the balcony to watch the crowds shuffle by or just relax with a glass of wine in your own little piece of heaven. Anita was a pleasure to work with and helped us along the way with any questions or logistics. There's a huge parking structure on the outside of the old city wall, from there it's about a 5 min walk to the apartment through the pedestrian only streets... all quite easy, though I'd suggest having luggage with wheels or at least backpack straps. While there's plenty to do/see in Taoromina, the apartment is also a great springboard to many other adventures without having to touch the car. There are many hikes that take you to neigboring towns and beyond... easy to escape the energized old city when you need a break for a quiet trek. We truly enjoyed our time there and would certainly stay again should our travels take us through Taoromina again in the future. As a side note, Anita is a gifted artist, who's work can be found throughout Taoromina (and beyond). Her beautiful gallery is about 4' from the apartment (side alley). Anita also read/writes/speaks English very well which of course was helpful in our communications before arriving.

Hi, I'm Anita a 30 years old mum half norwegian half italian. I've lived the most part of my life in this beautiful place which I personally call PARADISE!!! My art shop is right beside the door of the apartment, so I will be there if you need any help.
I love meeting people from all around the world and introducing them to Taormina. I like to share with my guests all my favorite places here in Taormina, giving them some travel tips about where to go or what to eat for example. In the apartment you will also find a kind of guide book which is made by all the guests where you will find a lot of travel tips.
I can help you organize a cooking class or an Etna tour, or just book a table in a restaurant for you.......I will try my best to make your holiday a special holiday!!!
