"La Pensione Svizzera" is a perfect example of a small and charming hotel. It is in the Vinciguerra family since 1925. Located on Via Pirandello, one of the most beautiful panoramic roads of Taormina , it is within a short walking distance to the center (congress - hall and Greek theater), as well as to the cable - car and the busterminal. You enter through a small iron gate at road-level and find the entrance and the garden with the shadowy palmtrees a few steps below.

The team at the reception desk is extemely helpful. The whole atmosphere is familiar and peaceful. Buffet breakfast is served in the garden or the garden-pavillon.

The hotel offers parking or garage at request, front desk service 24 hours, bar, internet point and a shuttle-service to the private beach (May -October). We organize tennis and diving reservations, airport limousine transfers and individual excursions. We also do bookings for bus-excursions, hotels and restaurants and make reservations for rent-a-cars.

Probably one of the best "bed and breakfast" in town! 

There are 22 rooms, all with private shower (hair-dryer), windows with double-glasses, central-heating, telephone, sat television, safe and individually controlled air - condition. Nearly all of them have a view on the sea and a balcony. 

Continental Breakfast Served from 5.00 to 7.30 on request

Buffet Breakfast Served from 7.30 to 10.00 in the winter garden
