Our two last nights were spent in Catania at this beautiful b&b Bianca. A bit difficult to locate at first since its inside an appartment-building. It's located on the third floor (there is a private elevator), comfy,spacious and we haven't felt so much at home elsewhere, as we did here in b&b Bianca!. Our room was located on the back...

Our two night stay at Bianca's with Francesco and Lea was fantastic. The stay and the house was actually one of the highlights of our trip and has inspired us to better our own apartment in Shanghai. Very warm people, fantastic location, beautiful rooms and great suggestions on local eats. It's a perfect combination.

Hello Guys It's been very nice meeting you, even if you have only spent here a short time. Please come back visit us and catania again. Thank you very much for your review and for thinking back about us once at home. Don't you forget about us and sicily! :)

Leia and Francesco are exceptional hosts. They are so nice and accommodating. Since we were only staying one night in Catania, Leia made sure to recommend everything we should see within our short stay. She recommended some great places to see, eat, and enjoy. The best recommendation was her dinner recommendation, if you get to stay at her B&B, ask...

We only stayed 1 night at Bianca, at the end of our trip to Sicily, but we wish we could have stayed longer as we had a lovely time.

Dear guest Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry you haven't got the time for appreciate Catania as a city. I am sure it's been a question of time.

Contacted Leia at Bianca B & B and Apartments quite early as we wanted to be sure to get a room here during our stay in Sicily. We previously had plans to visit other parts of the island but decided to spend all of our seven nights here. It proved to be a right decision in retrospect. We visited Siracusa,...

Wow, this is a really nice apartment, with some funky stylish decor. I'm not normally such an aesthete, but this was very tasteful. The hosts were very caring and served us delicious local fruits in the morning. There is a cat and a dog who are also very pleasant.

We stayed 1 night in Catania and were a bit deceived about our stay in B&B Bianca. It is a nice location, close to the piazza del duomo, bit at the same time very busy. Although the website stipulated that breakfast would be offered at 7 am, it would only be available at 7:30 at the earliest. The card the...

Lea and Francesco run a first rate establishment. They are somehow able to make you feel as if you have a private apartment with the most helpful neighbors ever. We had the most wonderful conversations with them. Their recommendations for restaurants (and their warnings, in one case), proved absolutely prescient. L&F have, over time, picked out a small group of...

What should we say? If Catania has been such an incredible experience, most of the credit goes also to Lea and Francesco (and Memole and Bianca of course, two little adorable fluffy pets)!

Bianca B&B was a wonderful base for my group's stay in Eastern Sicily. Lea and Francesco were wonderful hosts.

“Room #1 is in the back, overlooking the rooftops and a bit of the sea. Here it is quiet, and you have two small balconies with the sun shining in. It is like a little apartment with a big bed, sofa, TV and a private bathroom.”
