Our stay with Daniela at Casa Lucia was amazing. Within 2 minutes of arriving she was there to let us in. Daniela took about 20 minutes out of her day to sit with us, show us what there is to see and do in the area and recommend some amazing places to eat including bam bar for granitas, d'more for cannoli and more. The apartment was spotless clean and more room then we needed for the two of us. Heaps of amenities which was great and even though no wifi in the apartment if you have a coffee at the restaurant in front you can use there's. Stunning views also!
We would easily go back and stay here and will be recommending to all our friends!
Totally recommend Casa Lucia, can't beat the location, close to Porta Messina that means right on Corso Umberto but close to the bus stop for the LUMBI parking and close to the funicular to the lower part of town (beach, isola Bella).
Daniela was supernice! Helpful before our stay by giving us all the info we needed to safely reach the apartment. Kind to have us find cold water and fruit when we arrived, besides dedicating us all the attention giving us tips on the town.
Be aware of the three flight of stairs, they are quite steep.
The house is small and cozy best for a couple with at most a couple of kids (like us).
Thanks to Casa Lucia we had a great stay in Taormina!
we had a great stay at casa Lucia! The location is perfect and you cannot get a better spot if you want to be downtown. It is not a big place, so be aware of that, however hotel rooms in Italy are smaller unless you get a large suite. The views are beautiful and the place is perfect for two people. We went when it was very hot and we were just fine at night with the standing fan and ceiling fan in the room. It is also very safe. Also Daniela gave us wifi upon request for an additional 5 euros which was very accommodating. The only tough part was the steps going up, we each had two suitcases so it will be tough for those who have heavy suitcases. You will also be climbing 3 flights of stairs every time you come home. Personally though, that's not a big deal for me as it was still better than my 7 floor walkup in nyc back in the day! Grazie Mille Daniela!
We had such a beautiful warm welcome from Daniela who was so well organised and helped us with loads of information on getting around and sightseeing highlights. Everything was easy.
The host was very welcoming, accommodating arrival and departure times and helping guide a difficult parking process in Taormina.
Casa Lucia is right in the heart of Taormina, close to all the amenities, history and activities that the town has to offer. The house itself is lovely, with views of the sea, the town and the mountains. I cant recommend it enough.
