My wife and I spent three nights at B&B Porta della Terrra in October 2015. It was perfect! The staff, the room, the breakfast, and the location surpassed our expectations. We arrived from Philadelphia on a Friday to visit Militello, where my wife's mother was born in 1912. Unfortunately, our luggage did not arrive with us at the Catania airport.... More

My partner and I visited Militello for 2 nights and stayed at Porta Della Terra in January. Antonio and his staff made us feel right at home with their great service and warm welcome. We highly recommend staying here as the location, service and breakfast are all fantastic!

I would highly recommend staying here. The owner is on the premises and was a delight to meet and gave a lot of personal attention to his guests. We felt very... More

Finding this place in Militello was a great surprise. It's an historic building tastefully remodelled and decorated. Great ambiance, clean, fresh, excellent breakfast and great hosts. The crowning of the visit to this Unesco Patrimony site.

B&B Porta della Terra is a fabulous place to stay. The room we stayed in was large, well appointed, clean and beautifully decorated with wonderful original frescoes on the ceiling. Our host Antonio was charming and made sure we saw all of the special sights in Militello (of which there are many) including a church under restoration that has not... More

This is a fabulous bed and breakfast! Antonio, the owner, makes you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. Our room was large, quiet, meticulously clean, well equipped and there wasn't a detail missed by our host. Sleeping in a historic building under a beautifully painted ceiling and eating breakfast in a cellar under arched ceilings was a highlight for... More
