In the area there are plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs that offer a range of prices varied according to the level of service required. You can choose the deli take away or the fancy restaurant. Granite and sweet brioches are among the most popular together with the famous cannoli. I'll be happy to tell the different places.
From Catania airport there is a direct bus service to Taormina, the junction of the motorway is approximately 3 km, the railway (station of Giardini Naxos) is about 4 km away and is connected by bus and taxi.
We can provide a link service at low cost.
Claudia was very kind and warmly with us. He showed us a lot of places and ideas to do for our short trip. The studio was nice and clean, everything was there and the view direct on the sea is awesome. We really loved as well the roof of the building where a nice view on the old theatre is possible. The only problem we met is the noise of the neighbours if they are loud because the phonic isolation is quite weak. But overall, it was an exceptional value for the price.
Claudio was a nice host and despite arriving unannounced he came to meet us as soon as possible.
The apartment is a bit smaller than we were expecting, but it has everything you need. it's ok if you don't have too much luggage and don't want to cook too much.
The apartment has been fully renovated recently, but the actual building really needs some upgrades.
The location is very good. 5 minutes walk to the main street and beside the cable car.
To get to see the Greek theater you have to go thru the back of the building and thru other rooftops. it's not that easily accessible but it there is a show on it, you will be able to see it for free from the other side of the fence.
Parking it's a problem as there is nowhere to park around the building, but this is the same problem all around Positano. we had to park in a parking around 10 minutes walk from the apartment (13 EUR per day).Overall it was a good experience
Lovely apartment overlooking sea! Close to main area of town and ideally located for cable car to beach/Isola Bella. Store cupboard items and food in kitchen which was unexpected but useful! Claudio was a really friendly and welcoming host, setting up Prosecco and glasses on the balcony for our arrival and showing us around the apartment.
In an expensive town, Claudio's condo is a tremendous value.
Location is ideal: 2 minutes to the gondola which takes you to the beach and 5 minutes from the picturesque downtown of Taormina.
Host: Claudio was there waiting when we got off the bus from Catania. Eager to show us his family's condo and enthusiastic to share his favorite places around town.
Layout of the condo is a typical studio with a sensational balcony overlooking the water.
I rate this property a 8.5/10. The only deductions are 1 point for a small shower (I'm 6'2"), hot water does not last very long and .5 for no WiFi.
All said, I would certainly recommend staying here for the location and value! My cons are simply small creature comforts.
Claudio e la sua compagna sono stati disponibilissimi ed estremamente cordiali. Le loro indicazioni e consigli sono stati utili in una cittadina come Taormina che è molto cara. La casa è a due minuti dal centro e dal terrazzino c'è una vista stupenda. Dal terrazzo del residence invece c'è la chicca più bella...il teatro greco. La stanza è così come la vedete...ottima.
Claudio was a great host who met me at the railway station to take me to the apartment. There's lovely views across to the mainland and the coast below. The apartment was an easy 7 min walk to the centre of town and although small is very clean and tidy with all the basics and a 'Welcome' bottle of chilled Proseco. There is a convenience store on the street below the apartment block with good coffee if you don't want to bother at home. I have no hesitation in recommending Il terazzinno sul mare in Taormina.
El apartamento de Claudio está situado en un sitio maravilloso, cerca de la calle comercial y con bonitas vistas al mar y a la costa de Calabria.
Él ha sido muy atento al recibirnos, recomendándonos restaurantes y sitios que visitar por la zona.

About the Host, Claudio
sono una persona aperta ai rapporti sociali, mi piace viaggiare e quindi credo di sapere quello che un viaggiatore vorrebbe trovare nella casa della sua vacanza. Viaggiare è spesso un'esperienza sognata, aspettata e realizzata con sacrifici. Rispettare i propri ospiti vuol dire rispettare i loro sogni ed i loro sacrifici e rendere il loro viaggio qualcosa da ricordare sempre con piacere e nostalgia è l'obiettivo migliore che riesco ad immaginare.
