It's central location to the old city plus its private garden makes this hotel a wonderful home base for your visit to Taormina. We stayed here for one week and chose to upgrade to a superior room (worth every penny) which provided us with a fabulous balcony overlooking the

Our flight would land at 21:20 - would it still be possible to take public transport to the hotel?
Probably. But the issue with this hotel is it depends where the public transport drops you. Trains (3km away) would require you to also use a bus. The bus stop is 30 minutes uphill walk from the hotel. Also be reminded that they add 'night time' supplements to some forms of transport. So it depends how much luggage you have and how long you want to drag it up some steep roads. Taormina is basically on the side of a mountain. I would recommend a taxi but understand that this is a more expensive option. Check the rail and bus time tables for your dates on the internet.

Do they have an airport shuttle or can the arrange a transfer to Catania airport? If so, cost.
We can provide you a private transfer with a taxi from the airport of Catania direct to Hotel Continental, at the best rate of Euro 80.00 per way per car only for our guests (one way - max. 4 passengers per taxi). Cash payment request directly to the driver. In this case we need to know you flight number, air company, and the time of the landing in Catania airport. We will also need your contact number in case of a fly delay or any other fly issue. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
