In 1927 the journalist and entrepreneur, Cosimo Mollica Alagona began the construction of the original Hotel Villa Paradiso dellEtna. The hotels grand opening was in December 1929. The hotel was for many years the haunt of artists, travelers and notables of the time. Now completely refurbished (1995), it is immersed in the tranquillity of large parkland on the slopes of Mount Etna (400 m above sea level) just a few minutes from Catania, Taormina and from the most famous tourist localities of Sicily.
