San Domenico Palace Hotel

5 Piazza San Domenico
Taormina , Italy http://sandomenicopalace.hotelsinsicily.it/

Previously a 15th-century monastery, the exclusive San Domenico Palace Hotel took on its current form in 1896, when the Prince of Cerami added a new Belle Époque wing. Set in a hilltop garden overlooking Taormina, the hotel retains original monastic elements such as two cloisters with stone columns and vine-covered walls. The 108 guest rooms are housed in either the restored convent or the main hotel wing, and most include high ceilings, 19th-century furniture, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the cloister, garden, or Ionian Sea. The property also has an outdoor pool and four restaurants, including the Michelin two-starred Principe Cerami.
