GREAT location and nice full apartment. The view on the full sun all day balcony in front was incredible. Great for watching Mt Etna with your morning tea/coffee, and people watching. Perfect location, easy to get to, etc. 3rd floor, so it was easy to feel away form the crowd despite the location being a focal point of activity. The view on the back porch is also unbelievably great, better than the best view of most places. Ezio was very kind and stayed to meet us late on a Saturday night after our flights were delayed 7 hours - we greatly appreciated his efforts!

“Great Apartment, Great Location”

We have just returned from a week in Casa Rando and could not fault the apartment - it even withstood the monsoon type rain experienced in the first couple of days of our stay. Very spacious and well equipped and a fantastic terrace. Ideally located for the supermarket and restaurants. 2 of the best restaurants we visited were just around the corner - Malvasia and Tiramisu. It's about 15 - 20 minute walk to get to bus stops or main bus station. There was some noise from the street, particularly on the Saturday night when there had been at least 4 weddings taking place, but not enough to disturb too much. Plenty to see in Taormina itself, although it is more expensive than other parts of Sicily. However, it is probably one of the prettiest places. Would recommend one of the guided tours up Mt Etna - we used Etna People, who were excellent, but there are plenty of others.

“Taormina Gem”

A quick read through the other reviews should be enough to confirm that this apartment is a real gem. The place lived up to all of the positive reviews and if anything, is better than Ezio's Trip Advisor advertisement.
Ezio is friendly, easy to get on with and the stay was a real success. We stayed 5 days but I could have happily stayed for weeks. People-watching from the terrace is fun, especially with a glass of wine in hand.
A real bargain for Taormina bound travellers.
Top marks.

“Everything superb”

Stayed in Ezios apartment for 5 nights may 31st to june 5th.Apartment was everything we hoped for and more ! The balcony was the icing on the cake perfect for people watching on the Corsa Umberto. There were bars and restaurents within yards plus a good suremartic 20 metres away. Considering the position in the heart of Taormina it was fairly quite at night with good shutters on bedroom windows,just the 1st 2 nights were quite noisy but that was because it was a festivo ( bank holiday) We managed visits to Castelmona, Giardino nexus, Isola Bella, Syracusa(ortiva) as well as exploring Taormina all of it by local buses or walking. We have visited Italy many times and Taormina has to be the prettiest place yet.
Thanks Ezio ( and your mum )

Just got back from our trip to Sicily and our stay in Ezio's apartment in Taormina was the highlight of our vacation. Very clean and comfortable. Great sun drenched terrace with a fantastic view of Etna. All of the rooms were very spacious and the kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need to cook a meal. Good wifi access also.
Would definitely recommend this apartment and would rent again.
