The Hotel Villa Paradiso, a historic hotel in Taormina, was established in the early 1900s.

The Martorana family bought the property in 1892 from an English noblewoman, Lady Florence Trevelyan.

The Villa Paradiso overlooks the public garden of Taormina, and was originally an accessory body.

initially used as a wine shop and was converted into the ‘Villa Paradiso’ guesthouse in 1912, beginning to host travellers from all over Europe, often penniless Bohemians who, unable to could not pay, they would leave paintings in exchange, which we can still admire today in the hotel’s salons.

In the early 1950s, Salvatore Martorana and his wife Esther took the reins of management, who further increased the importance of the hotel, making it a point of reference in the of Taormina hospitality and a meeting place for the various personalities who characterised the Perla’s golden years of the Perla.

The Martorana family, already in its 5th generation, is among the longest-living dynasties of hoteliers in Sicily, which offers hotel guests an experience of warmth and true hospitality, preserving all the charm and original architectural features, with charming lounges and rooms elegantly furnished rooms. Here, every piece of furniture, every painting, every print, every carpet is linked to the history of this place and this family.
