Been to sotto il vulcano a couple of times. Always satisfied with the service. Owners are warm & friendly, and also very helpful with whatever activities one would like to do. Rooms are safe, clean and tidy. And breakfast is fresh and abundant. Surely a place i would recommend for anyone visiting the area.

We really enjoyed our stay at sotto il vulcano. Clean rooms, excellent breakfast, area where to relax a bit. Always felt welcomed by antonella and salvo. Can't wait to go again. The B&B has its own private parking on site which is a plus for those traveling with their car.

Me and three other cyclists spent 4 days here. Salvo and his wife are very friendly and will go out of their way to help. Breakfast is good and location excellent within walking distance from the centre. The area is nice and there are a lot of things to explore including Etna.

Went for a 3 day road cycling trip and based at Sotto il Vulcano. Salvatore picked us up from Pozzallo ferry and although it was the first time we met we immediately felt at home.

B&B Sotto il Vulcano is simply brilliant! A perfect place to stay when you're planning to explore the Etna area. Be sure to check in first as they give out discounted entry passes for the area. So friendly and helpful, the rooms are wonderful with views of Etna and the breakfast is amazing! Truly an exceptional B&B!

Stayed 2 nights, perfect location for visiting Etna. Antonella and Salvo were so welcoming and helpful, helped us plan our excursion to Etna, really cannot praise them enough. Breakfast was excellent! The communal room was great and was welcome to help ourselves to drinks and snacks. Highly recommended.

Went for a 3 day MTB trip with friends, the owner Salvo picked us up from pozzallo, treated us well with homemade breakfast everyday, took us for a great ride around Etna and on the 3rd day we finished with a hike around Etna. Simply an amazing experience.
