Riviera Lido: "Milazzo - Sicily" Sicilia Hotel Tip by Hans_MUC

Sicilia Hotels: 48 reviews and 83 photos

You can stay in one of the touristic centers, but to meet "real Sicilians", itīs better to look for unspoiled plaeces. Milazzo is one of it
Yes-there is industry, so what...?

If you come to that harbour, where the tourists usually only change from the bus to the Lipari-ferries or back, there are some hotels, and Riviera Lido was a surprise!

All new renovated (May 2005), friendly employees, rooms with a balcony and all to the sea (where - unfortunately?- the fishermen pass all the time... it looks romantic, but might disturb in the night...
breakfast is fruits, croissants, a fresh made cappucciono (or 2 or 3...), orange juices, water, Muesli, bread, Joghurt.... friendly staff there as well, who were even friendly, when I (latest for breakfast...) came down and asked to have breakfast on the terrace!
Nice, to sit there in the sun, under the trees, a little beach in front... ok on the right, there is the petrochemical industry complex...so try to look left ;-)

We liked it there and stayed one more day, went to Milazzo restaurants and enjoyed the real sicilian life without german speaking people around us (thatīs what we can do ourselves ;-))

Unique Qualities: shady terrace, sunny in early summer, shady in summer
small private beach
1km outside of Milazzo

clean and friendly!
fair priced
