You’ll feel immersed in our Sicilian warmth and traditions, from the furniture to the scents in the garden.

Fast Internet

Free Wi-Fi and internet point

Relax fully wherever you like, from our panoramic terrace to the Mediterranean garden – our fibre-optic internet connection works all through the hotel. We have also provided a handy internet point, available at no extra cost.


Comfort with a View

From the summer of 2019, the Pensione Svizzera has been enhanced with an innovative, convenient panoramic lift. Enjoy the view through the glass and be absorbed into the magnificent Sicilian landscape before you. You’ll see the palm trees and flowers in our garden, the lovely white-washed Church of San Giorgio, the solemn mountain and the medieval village of Castelmola.


Handy for guests

It’s not easy to finding parking in Taormina, so we’ve got the solution. Upon request we can reserve one of eight spots in a parking garage or on the street, from €15 per day.



Buffet and table service

Enjoy a traditional Italian breakfast every morning. Our breakfast buffet awaits you here in the terrace overlooking the bay. Help yourself to the rich selection of sweet and savoury tastes, try some local flavours and take in the view: we’ll serve your espresso or cappuccino to your table.

Our corner bar is the perfect place to take a break, anytime of the day. When you come back in from a trip around Taormina, have a tasty freshly-squeezed juice, or enjoy a pre-dinner aperitivo. Then after your meal, pop in for an authentic Sicilian digestif.
