Beautiful and luxurious terrace with breathtaking views over Mount Etna and the Bay of Taormina.
The five star and absolutely amazing Grand Hotel Timeo is found right next to the famous Teatro Antico di Taormina. With a whole lot to offer, one of the top features at the hotel is the beautiful The Literary Terrace & Bar.
Part elegant inside bar with Sicilian carpentry and antique fittings, and part covered terrace. But the best area is the front and open-air part of the lush terrace, where you face some truly breathtaking views over Mount Etna and the Bay of Taormina.
Settle down in the classic yet comfy lounge chairs and enjoy the surroundings, expertly crafted signature cocktails and tasty bites, usually complemented with live music.
With a luxurious and high-end vibe, The Literary Terrace & Bar is by no means cheap, but then you do get both a top class experience and top class service. Visit for an aperitivo around sunset and you will probably have a night to remember for a long time.
If you are looking to have a full dinner in an eqaully stylish rooftop setting, you can look on either side of The Literary Terrace. Here you find Ristorante Timeo, serving locally sourced Sicilian favourites as lunch and dinner, and the Otto Geleng, serving a Michelin-star menu Friday & Saturday evenings.
