About the Lodgings, five-star hotels
Ragusa: accommodation in a luxury estate with a long history, it used to be part of the old ecclesiastical feudal hold dating from the 12th century, it was an old Arab rural home, a sort of hermitage and fortified fortress and in the '700 becomes the residence of a noble Sicilian family still owning it.
Palermo: Accommodation in a world-class hotel reminiscent of a small castle. Doubtlessly one of the most famous hotels in Sicily. Built in Art Nouveau style and set in fragrant, terraced and jasmine-scented gardens.
Taormina: A luxury 5-star hotel in an ancient Dominican monastery, overlooking Mount Etna and Taormina Bay. Famous writers, artists and composers, came here to savour this unique place.
