We warmly invite you to stay at B&B Casa Olimpia, situated in Giarre city located in one of the most picturesque area of the world, the Taormina-Etna region of Sicily at the base of Volcano Etna (the biggest in Europe 3369 msl) between Taormina (15km) and Catania (23km) and 2km from the beach,. The Taormina-Etna region is spectacular and we recommend more than 2 days to see it all. In addition, more time can be spent visiting Catania, Syracuse & Noto or Messina, all within easy reach by train or by bus.
We are centrally located in a quiet and safe part of Giarre, well served by buses and just 1 Km from the main railway station. Public transport is a very easy option for getting around, and we are walking distance from the nearest pizzeria, bars, restaurants, shops and shopping malls.

Our extensive knowledge of the area will help you to see as much as possible in a short time and we will always try to help you wherever we can.
