Beautiful place, lovely people, perfect location - it's like sleeping in a fine art gallery. Anna and Antonio are wonderful - the whole place is charming and breakfast is delicious - I always look forward to returning to this home away from home.

Lovely accommodation - pristine, spacious and comfortable - in a great location. Charming hosts (and gifted artists). Excellent breakfast and a wonderful way to see Catania, an ancient city rich in sights and history.

We had an amazing stay at Antonio and Anna's place. The room was very well decorated and we felt at home. Antonio and Anna are great artists: the living room reflects there talent. The location is perfect, very close by the fish-market a must see in Catania. Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming. Emilia e Jöri

After trying several recommended places with no rooms available came across B&B Faro. It was Friday night, Anna, the owner, answered the phone and agreed to let us in in 30 mins.

...and Anna and Antonio are very friendly and helpful. Their place is on the top floor of an antique city building and has a nice open and airy/green feeling to it. Highly recommended. If you travel by car, keep in mind that parking might be tricky, but they will explain how it's done best

B&B Faro was booked for me by my hosts in Catania. I am very pleased that they chose this place for me. Excellent location. Easy to find. Pleasant, quiet inner courtyard. Clean, spacious rooms. Excellent breakfast. Warm, genuine, friendly, and helpful hosts. Only downside is the lack of wifi, which is a general problem in Catania. I high recommend this...

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....
