How to reach the hotel
Train: Taormina Giardini (4 Kms.)
Airport: Fontanarossa Airport - Catania (55 Kms.)
Coming from motorway A 18, Catania-Messina, exit at TAORMINA. After having paid the toll follow the sign "Taormina" uphill for about 2 miles. Immediately after the multi-storey parking “Lumbi” turn semi-right entering the tunnel “Monte Tauro/Porta Catania”(1.093 meters/3.586 ft). Exiting at Taormina’s south end, drive uphill around the multi-storey parking “Porta Catania” till you reach a little square, Piazza Sant’Antonio. In front of you stands the medieval city-portal "Porta Catania" and, before it, the post-office to its right. Just before the post-office you find white hotel signs. Follow them taking the narrow one-way road downhill to the right from the post office and follow it for about 1/4 mile till the road opens on to a kind of place lined with trees. Continue downhill to the right entering the one-way "Via Roma" (again white hotel signs). From there it's just another 1/4 mile on the panoramic "Via Roma" till you find the Hotel Villa Schuler on the left side. In front of the hotel there is a small public parking (on your right) and our private parking (yellow lines on your left). If you have booked a garage place we will park the car for you, as soon as you have checked in.
