An ideal place to stay in Catania

5 of 5
This is a spacious and extremely well-equipped penthouse apartment. There is a wide terrace with a spectacular view across the roofscape of Catania to the smouldering Etna in the background. It's just a 10-minute walk from the centre of Catania but at 7 floors up it's very quiet. There's a bustling market ion the streets below but the noise doesn't intrude. All the bedrooms and the lounge had very effective air conditioning. We were welcomed with a range of fresh fruits and drinks and the kitchen cupboards were well-stocked with the daily essentials. Renata and Giuseppe have gone to pains to provide all one could need. Unreservedly recommended.

Perfect

5 of 5
We stayed for a week in Salvo and Mariella's apartment in Catania. Location was perfect, 10 minutes walk from Duomo Square and the Fish market in a safe and secure residential building with three holiday apartments. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the buzz of Catania. The accommodation was recently renovated and nicely decorated, it was spacious, with two bedrooms, living/dining/kitchen with all we needed to self cater and a large bathroom with lovely shower and an area off with a washing machine. We really enjoyed the sunny balcony. There are a couple of small supermarkets nearby and a lovely wine shop with great inexpensive Sicilian wine. Mariella was the perfect host, she had some fruit, water and juice waiting for us along with some sicilian sweets and a bottle of wine which was very generous. She also gave us lots of tips for places to visit and places to eat and provided information and maps. She kept in touch during the week and provided us with directions and timetables for visiting Taormina and Syracuse. We took the option of transport to and from the airport and on our last day as there was no booking that night we were allowed to stay in the apartment until our flight. All in all a really fantastic experience, thank you Mariella and Salvo, we hope to return soon!
