The four days I spent at this B&B were truly amazing. It is in the heart of the historic district, so many sites were within walking distance. Access to the valley of the temples & archeological museum was a short bus ride away.
The room with private bathroom was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was delicious with some of the cookies made on site.
The adjacent church stands out from the other 45 churches I had visited - the stuccowork sculptures by Giacomo Serpotta are what marble was to Michelangelo. The beauty of it brought tears to my eyes.
This is a "do again" B&B
