Villa Ortensia B&B was one great choice in our last trip to Italy. It is well located, has very comfortable accommodation and an excellent service. Rich breakfast with a wide variety of fruits and cakes. Rosaria is a perfect host and she kindly gave us many tips to visit places (and to eat well) around Catania.
