In 1866, the Prince of Cerami inherited a 15th century monastery in the ancient seaside town of Taormina. At that time, Taormina was already an obligatory port of call on the Grand Tour and so the monastery was converted into a hotel to accommodate wealthy European visitors. The San Domenico Palace Hotel is still considered one of the finest in Sicily. It houses the prestigious Michelin two-starred Sicilian restaurant, Principe Cerami. Embark on an unforgettable culinary journey, curated by award-winning Chef Etna - - born Massimo Mantarro.
