About the neighbourhood
Presa is a peaceful village situated in the Etna-Taormina district. The romantic village is a perfect place to enjoy a wonderful and unforgettable Sicilian holiday. There are few places in Sicily, which enjoy a climate, a nature and an overview of this type. In the village there is a restaurant, Pizzeria, Bar, one market, one church, one postal office, one plaza, zero noises ! Here, life goes on, slow and quiet. Also, we are one step away from the two most visited places in the island: Mount Etna and the sea of Taormina.
