We travelled around the Amalfi Coast and South East Sicily mid-August, and we've been quite disappointed by the average comfort of the hotels, despite their high rates. The Faro B&B is certainly by far our best experience ! The apartment is in the heart of the city, one step from the Cathedral, the famous daily fish market and all monuments. Our bedroom was very spacious and nicely decorated. The owners are extremely nice and helpful, they both speak very good English and French.
We stayed two nights, as from Catania you can easily go to Taormina, to the Etna or other wonderful spots for the day.
One more thing : you should try the wine bar / restaurant just down the building !
