We read very good reviews on this venue and were looking forward to a great outing. We phoned up the Beekeeper's House Museum a few days ago to make sure that the venue was open to the public and to obtain general information. The person on the phone provided us with useful travel details and advice. The Museum is well sign posted and there is plenty of free parking on the road. We took an appointment for today at 11:00ish. We travelled from Messina to Zafferana Etnea (just over 100Km) and pulled the bell at the beekeeper's gate at 11:20 to find that the beekeeper was, in fact, tending to his "campagna'. We were told that the beekeeper would return at 17:00. The lady who answered from an upstairs balcony said that she could not call the beekeeper to tell him that we arrived and awaiting for him.... Sadly, we returned home with great disappointment in our heart. So, be aware; the beekeeper is someone who is either "forgetful" or ...well. You can draw your conclusions!!!!
