There are three types of budget hotels in Sicily for travelers: villas, beach hotels, and bed and breakfast hotels. These 3 different accommodations encourage different travel personalities, but each one provides the budget traveler an amazing way to save money. They all share the same sentiment, however, bed and breakfasts are the most affordable accommodation. You can find them in well-known cities such as: Palermo, Catania, and Taormina, and all across Sicily.
Beach hotels are either real beach apartments or hotels that are cozily placed in close proximity to Sicilian beaches. You can select between 1 room units or units that have 2 or more rooms. Self service is the motto of Sicilian beach hotels, and you may have to pay additional fees for extra room services.
Villas are apartments placed in a country setting, away from a lot of the hustle and bustle of city. Unlike beach hotels, villas tend to be completely furnished and permit guests to cook meals for themselves. Sicilian villas are perfect for families on vacation, because they are like a “home away from home”. Groups of friends and travelers may want to make villas their first choice for accommodation, especially if they plan an elongated stay in Sicily.
Bed and breakfast hotels are another kind of budget hotels which you can find in Sicily. These amazing hotels are small and have luxurious rooms for accommodations. Travelers will be able to save the most money by booking their stay in a b&b. Bed and breakfast Sicilia hotels are famous for their homey atmosphere. An excellent B&B near Catania is Don Pedro Riposto. Visitors who would like to trek Mount Etna should stay here because it is just a short distance from the nearest trails. Additionally, Don Pedro Riposto is a pride of Taormina, a very popular tourist destination in Sicily, as it gives a stunning view of the coastline. You can also enjoy remarkable B&B Taormina facilities at affordable rates in this place.

For those travelling to the island’s east coast and landing in Catania’s Airport, there are so many places to visit and experience. Flights to Catania depart from Gatwick Airport and open routes are offered by Air Malta, Thomson Flights and British Airways. Generally, travellers bypass Catania, and use it only as a point of entrance. It is a shame not to visit Catania, as it is a city filled with culture, and home to an amazing variety of historical treasures.
Most people traveling around the region opt to rent a car at the airport, as this permits them the freedom to take in the full region and set their own itinerary. A 50 minute drive north from Catania is Taormina, a beautiful hillside town which provides some of the most remarkable views down over the Ionian Sea and out to Mount Etna. There are plenty of places to see in Taormina, such as: the Arabian necropolis, Palazzo Duca di S.Stefano, and Teatro Greco. Don’t miss out on the shopping on the central Corso Umberto, and the amazing beaches accessible by cable car or through the regular shuttle buses that run from the hotels. Activities in the area include everything from scuba diving to tennis.
B&B Catania facilities are world standard. You can enjoy cost-friendly and luxurious experiences too. In Castelmola, a small village in the hills above Taormina, there is the chance to sample the town’s popular almond-wine and admire beautiful embroidery works. The views from there are utterly remarkable: narrow streets embedded in amazing architecture. Those who suffer from arthritis, skin complaints, or respiratory issues or who just want a chance to pamper themselves, should visit the Ali Terme mud and water collection, boric acid, rich in sulphur, and sodium bromide among other things.
