One of the best B&Bs in the world is in Milazzo and has got King Umberto’s mustache. It was named after the street where it is located, Re Umberto.
A great place if you are looking for a nice and elegant place to explore Milazzo, its beauty and surroundings. Style and refined details are what stands out as you enter the old palace in the high street of the town known for being the gateway to the Aeolian Islands.
A wooden door is the entrance to a court that splits the structure in two: a ground floor with a cozy sitting area for breakfast and the access to rooms upstairs. A wooden roof with a mezzanine and several old books put on display are the calling card of a place that, like the king’s mustache – the symbol of the bed and breakfast – seems to have so much to say.
We visit a room that overlooks the high street and the view offers the visitor a glimpse of the castle and the roofs of the old town full of churches and palaces steeped in history. You are in the centre of Milazzo: a walk or a bike takes you to all the points of interest, such as the castle and Capo Milazzo, as well as the alleys and the waterfront.
Downstairs you will also find an old radio, several post-war advertising posters and even the front of an old Fiat 500, put on display as a symbol of journey and of the traditions that are worth discovering during a holiday. The owner, Piero Emanuele, is a young lawyer ready to satisfy your curiosity and needs, and above all is willing to offer his time to make your stay in Re Umberto B&B really memorable.
