Hotel Villa Diodoro has over 100 years of history. It was named after the Greek historian Diodoro Siculo, a well-known character who once lived in the old town. Diodoro was known for his stories about distinguished travellers from all over the world who visited Taormina to experience its beautiful views, rich culture and bewitching art.
The present town of Taormina occupies the original ancient site that was founded around 300 BC. The location was thought to have been selected for its commanding views and because the hill it is located on, is the last projecting point of the mountain ridge that extends along the coast from Cape Pelorus.
Many famous names have visited and lived in the town including Nietzsche, Bertrand Russell and Roald Dahl. DH Lawrence also lived in Taormina between 1920 and 1923. Here he produced a number of poems, novels and essays as well as the book 'Sea and Sardinia.' The town is accessible from the coastline via an aerial tramway that was built in 1992. Diodoro maintains many of its classical features in respect of this rich heritage that it has inherited over the years.
