The Daughter was in charge of booking accommodations for our Sicily trip and also for driving. I was the navigator and did a lousy job of getting us to the B&B by zigging instead of zagging at some point. That was a BIG mistake as it is located in the middle of the baroque part of town and there are nothing but one way streets in the neighborhood, all of which seemed to be going the OTHER way. If you do drive you should be aware that parking near the B&B is very limited and you can only park for an hour from 0800-2000. Put a note in your window with the date and time you arrive at the parking place if you want to avoid a ticket. Eventually we did find the place and were both very happy with the choice.
Check-in was fast and efficient and we were ushered to our rooms on the second floor by the day manager. And rooms with an s is not a typo. Two single beds were requested and in Emanuele’s version this meant that we were given two separate bedrooms. Mine was huge with a balcony to the street and a painting on the ceiling under the large double bed! The Daughter had a single bed and her own balcony. The rooms were immaculate - equivalent to a four star hotel. The bathroom was fully equipped and supplied with all the amenities one would expect from accommodation that would cost two or three times what we paid. The only one little minus was that the free wi-fi didn't function in the room.
Breakfast was served in the reception. There was a large selection of bread, jam and sweets together with juice and coffee or tea all served by the uniformed on duty staff.
With its location in the heart of the city you are within walking distance of the major sights and any shopping you might want to do. This was truly a luxury experience at a bargain price. The proprietors should be extremely proud of their product.
