Welcome to Castello di San Marco charming hotel and SPA, a princely baroque residence dating back to the end of the XVII century.
It stands on the Ionian sea, a few kilometres away from the romantic town of Taormina. Today the castle represents a place in which to relax and surround yourself in flourishing natural beauty whilst enjoying the exceptionally comforting atmosphere, within a hotel which prides itself in the highest quality services and attention to detail.
The reception halls, the pergolas and the wine palmento, an original wine press at the heart of the castle which today has been converted into a unique winebar; are all finely decorated whilst maintaining a Sicilian baroque style. The castle’s communal areas encapsulate all the warmth and feeling of historical buildings with a modern elegance. The grand building is illuminated by warm, welcoming lights creating a soft and soothing light throughout.
The Castello di San Marco is a place with a notable past and the excitement of being so close to this history can be felt when one wanders through the archways of the castle and over the cobbled pathways. This sense of history is respectfully combined with the pleasure and warmth of traditional Sicilian hospitality.

About CataniaCatania is an Italian city on the east coast of Sicily facing the Ionian Sea, between Messina and Syracuse. It is the capital of the homonymous province, and is the second-largest city in Sicily and the tenth in Italy.
Catania is known for its seismic history, having been destroyed by a catastrophic earthquake in 1169, another in 1693, and several volcanic eruptions from the neighboring Mount Etna volcano, the most violent of which was in 1669.
Catania has had a long and eventful history, having been founded in the 8th century BC. In the 14th century and the Renaissance, Catania was one of Italy's most important and flourishing cultural, artistic, and political centers, having witnessed the opening in 1434 of the first university in Sicily. Today, Catania is one of the main economic, touristic, and educational centers in the island, being an important hub of industry, thus gaining the nickname, "European Silicon Valley".
