Where is it and what's nearby

  • On the Sicilian East coast just 32 miles from Messina
  • The cable car whisks you up the cliff to Taormina in just 3 minutes

A colorful and diverse mix of cultures brings exciting flavors to each town. A place where cultures have co-existed for centuries successfully from Greeks to Romans, from Christians to Arabs.

How to enjoy Sicily

Sicily is a rich legacy of grand palaces, ornate churches and hillsides fragranced by lemon groves and colored by bougainvillea

  • Agrigento, Selinunte, Segesta are three Greek temples that have a good claim to rival anything you will see in Greece
  • For stunning Roman Mosaics, largely regarded to be the largest collection in the world, take a trip to see the Villa Romana del Casale
  • The coastal roads will reward you with stunning views of rocky cliffs and the turquoise sea before delivering you to a marvelous beach such as Giardini

Sicily’s capital, Palermo, has a vibrant and quaint mix of a rich cultural heritage, evidence in action of the island’s historically important position on the world’s trade routes. Greek and Roman ruins nestle comfortably beside Byzantine churches, Arabian minarets and Norman archways. The old town is a warren of alleyways that suddenly reveal a baroque church, majestic piazza or tiny, old-fashioned grocery store.

For one of the island’s best views, head to the eastern town of Taormina. It has a magical atmosphere enhanced by its clifftop location overlooking two wide sandy bays, an ancient amphitheater and Mount Etna. Often capped in snow, Mount Etna is one of Europe’s only active volcanoes. For an added culture fix, head to Syracuse, home to ancient mathematician and engineer, Archimedes.

    When to visit Sicily

    Sicily’s warm climate makes it possible to enjoy spring blooms in February and still swim in the sea through to November, though July and August usually hit the 100s every day. Between July and September, Palermo hosts an art and music festival called Kals’Art.

  • A word from the hotel

    The best way to spend a wonderful holiday at the Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea is in one of our fantastic suites with a spacious terrace where we serve private dinners with a selected menu and typical Sicilian serenades. We even set up fireworks from our beach for those very special occasions.
    Giovanni Nastasi, General Manager

  • A word from the hotel

    On a starry night at the beach bar, ask Carlo to prepare a fresh Bellini for you – it’s been voted the best in the world!
    Steven Ceschia, Concierge

  • You need to know

    The hotel is right on the beach and provides smart loungers exclusively for Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea guests. However, the rest of the beach is public and you’ll be sharing the sand and sea with other holiday makers and the colorful fishing boats that bob along the horizon.

  • We say

    A friendly fun-loving Sicilian atmosphere where the wine flows, the food is plentiful and the music abounds.

  • You need to know

    The hotel has a swimming pool, yes, but it’s the size of a postage stamp.
