From the hotel you can stroll along the famous Corso Umberto where you will find a myriad of shops and costyrestaurants and cafes. Along the way you will be hard pressed to put the camera down as you find many vantage points with sea and Mount Etna views.
You can get to the hotel by car but in reality the car is not necessary to get around here. From the car park at the funicular, you can walk into a small port and you come to the large and lush park with century-old trees that surround the hotel. You will find the great outdoor pool with sun terrace in the garden in front of the hotel.
