Bianca B&B is about 10 mins taxi ride (or 15-20 mins bus) from the main station. It cost us about 14 EURO by taxi and 1 EURO each by bus.
Our hosts were wonderful - really helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to help us. Our room was clean and roomy (as was the bathroom). The cost of our room included free WiFi and breakfast - bonus!
My only comment would be the toilet pipes, when we flush the toilet the pipes made a loud and long noise - but there's nothing you can do with old pipes! Other than that, it was a perfect stay. Thank you to our hosts!
During our stay we visited Toarmina and Mount Etna. Toarmina has beautiful views however I would recommend going early. There is an ampitheatre there and it closes at 4pm. Mount Etna is a must see. We did a tour and it cost us 39EURO per person for a private tour. It's amazing - we saw lava from a distance and went into a lava cave. If we could have stayed for another night I would have gone to Siracua. In total we were there for 3 nights - we should have stayed an extra one.
