Outdoor Dining Area
Villa Baronessa is nestled on Sicily’s east coast, just a kilometre from the sea, between Taormina and Catania, providing breath-taking views over Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea. Set within the Eastern part of the island, Villa Baronessa is in the foothills of the world famous Mount Etna - the oldest recorded active volcano in the world. Nestled just outside the ancient port city of Catania (which is where the nearest airport is), this home is just moments from the beaches. Catania is dripping with history and cultural interest; the wide central square, Piazza del Duomo, features the whimsical Fontana dell’Elefante statue and richly decorated Catania Cathedral. The Palazzo Biscari represents a beautiful example of Catanese baroque architecture and contains a large archaeological collection. History buffs will be impressed by the rococo style interiors, stylish decorations and sophisticated crystal chandeliers. Whether it be Benedictine monasteries, the vivacious fish market which is one of the most emblematic sites of the city, or the kiosks of Catania, this historical city is brimming with cultural interest, bustling local life and opulent historical buildings. The thermal baths and spas are at the foot of Etna, while the famous “Kiosks of Catania” are a hub of local life, dating back to the 1800’s; the most famous of which are in Piazza Umberto, a stone’s throw from the Fera 'o Luni, the market of Catania. Taormina is a stylish and well-heeled town, offering pretty cobbled streets and upscale boutiques, drawing a smart international crowd and some excellent eateries.
