Why Massimiliano chose Catania

Perfect location for a stay in Catana. Apartment in front of the castle ursino a short walk from the Duomo, the main street and a few meters from the historic fish market. Castle Square ursino is a gastronomical center of the city and have focused a great deal of restaurants and clubs. This area is still alive and can be reached easily from here all the most representative of the city. Stazinoe a bus is about 5 minutes from where you can take the means to reach places such as Etna, Siracusa, Taormina, Noto, Piazza Armerina

What makes this apartment unique

The area of the Castello Ursino, where the apartment is located, is the heart of the city. The old folk tradition, the proximity to the historical market of the fish, the Baroque context, make it fascinating. The location is central and from here you can visit all the main tourist and historical sites of the city: theater grco, Roman theater, Roman baths, underground city, opera house, museum, diocesan museum.

A few minutes by car or bus you can reach the sandy beaches (south side) and those of black volcanic stone (north side).

A few steps away is the bus linking the city of Catania and Taormina, Siracusa, Noto, Ragusa, Palermo etc ...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great host, great apartment! 5 star! He was very helpful and offered advice of things to do - advice that was very well received and appreciated! The place itself was perfect, clean, as described on the listing. Great location within Catania. Great restaurants nearby for food, close enough to the beach (which was a very good one - advised to go by the host! and turned out to be AMAZING!). Not too central that you had the hustle and bustle of the city, but not too far away that it wasn't a short walk. Be prepared to be hot as the bedroom is elevated in the attic - but this should be obvious when looking at this property. Really couldn't ask for more from the host, the property or the city! - make sure you learn your simple Italian as many places speak very broken English!

Nice cosy apartment near the fish market

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nice and cosy; we enjoyed our stay a lot and the owner was extremely friendly and easy to communicate with. The location couldn't be better with the duomo and fish market walking distance away.
