About this listing

The room has an amazing view on mount Etna, it is in the most ancient Palace of Catania dating 1600. It is very quiet but please consider that there are many steps to get there, 118 from the road level. You are in the heart of ancient Catania.

The Space

I am a sicilian tour guide and I have an extra bed room in my apartment. It is in a 1600 palace in the historical centre of Catania. It was my daughter's bed room and it has an elevated bed to be reached with a ladder. Do not expect a very spacious room but you have the exclusive use of the terrace.From the window you have a beautiful view of Mount Etna and from the terrace you dominate the whole Catania, Mt Etna and as far as Syracuse in the clear days. You are at a walking distance from all the important places and monuments of Catania and the railway station. It is important to know that being an historical palace there is no lift and there are many steps to the room (118)The room is ideal for young people but not suitable for who has walking problems


The shopping area is five minutes walk from here

We are very close to the bus terminal

What is unique in my apartment is that the first level is quite ancient with stuccos and large living rooms of 1800 while the second level is quite modern. The view is unique as well as we dominate the whole city.

Guest Access

The guests will have access to the terrace and also to a little kitchen.

Interaction with Guests

Due to my job I will often be out but it happens that in the evening I have time to share some nice time on the terrace with a glass of wine or a cold bear, facing Mt Etna and the sea

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is full of interesting things to do. All monuments, churches, sites of interests are at walking distance, you do not need the car. Plenty of pubs, restaurants, pizza places etc...

Getting Around

All public transportations are at walking distance from here. No great problems to park a car but you better ask me where is safe and I will show you.

Other Things to Note

Catania è la città più baricentri ai vari siti di interesse storico/culturale della Sicilia. Da qui ci si può spostare senza problemi in giornata a Taormina, Siracusa, Piazza Armerina, Etna, Messina, Ragusa etc..

House Rules

My guests have to love animals as I have two dogs and two cats, and a gold fish. They are not allowed in the room but of course they live in the apartment therefore it happens that you meet them. No smoking in the room. No other people are admitted unless you ask to have friends coming to meet you.
