The Sicily region

Sicily, historic cradle of culture and traditions, counts among its most beautiful cities:

- Taormina, the “Pearl of the Ionian Sea”, famous for its beautiful coastline and the magnificent Greek Theatre;

- Siracusa, to which they belong the beautiful town of Noto, maximum example of Sicilian Baroque, and the natural reserve of Vendicari;

- Palermo, chief town of Sicily, which houses the sumptuous Norman Palace, now home to the Sicilian Parliament, the Cathedral, which contains the tomb of Frederick II of Swabia, and the marine reserve of the Island of Ustica;

- Agrigento, in which the enchanting Valley of the Temples stands, absorbed in the largest archaeological park of the world and part of the World Heritage of Humanity according to UNESCO, and to whose province the wonderful Island of Lampedusa belongs.

Catania

Milestone of a stay in Catania is the visit of the majestic Mount Etna: it is the highest active volcano in Europe, absorbed in the wonderful Park of Etna, declared nature conservation area in 1987.

The city of Catania overlooks the Ionian Sea, offering a surprisingly varied coastline: from the jagged cliff of the seafront, to the sandy beach of Playa area, up to the characteristic black beach of San Giovanni Li Cuti, heritage of age-old lava flows.

The historical centre of Catania is certainly worthy of a visit; it was rebuilt in Baroque style after the devastating eruption of 1669, which destroyed the city.

Among the many places and monuments, the following deserve absolutely a visit:

- Duomo Square, home to the Cathedral of Sant'Agata and Elephant Fountain, symbol of the city of Catania;

- Stesicoro Square, which houses the ruins of the Roman Amphitheatre and the statue of the composer Vincenzo Bellini;

- Via Crociferi, with its beautiful Churches;

- The Ursino Castle, built in the first half of 1200 by Frederick II of Swabia;

- The Greek Theatre;

- The Benedictines' Monastery;

- The Catacombs;

- The Birthplace of Vincenzo Bellini with annex Museum.

Also the surroundings of Catania are suggestive. Among them: “Paesi Etnei”, characteristic towns situated on the slopes of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Pedara, Nicolosi, Zafferana; the beautiful seaside resorts, such as Acicastello, Acitrezza, Capo Mulini, Riposto; and, not least, the towns of Acireale, famous for its folkloristic Carnival, and Caltagirone, known for the production of beautiful ceramics.

"Lovely garden, but Yellow House has seen better days"

Set in beautiful mature gardens, the house is clean but leaves much to wish for. Upon entering it we were greeted by a strong smell of damp. For a self-catering apartment, the kitchen lacked some basi… More

"Amazing holidays in Sicily,a pleasure to spend summerdays there."

I've spent a beautiful week in San Gregorio di Catania last August.
I've felt like at home in Villa San Bartolomeo where the landowners are so nice people,I've felt like a part of their family.
The villa is really close to a lot of interesting places,such as Catania,Acitrezza,Acicastello,Grotte di Alcantara and the highway is at 5 minutes from the house,so it's possible to reach Taormina and Siracusa in short time.
The villa has an huge garden,full of different plant species,and it was a pleasure enjoy in the swimming pool,coming from the escursions.
Cleanliness and courtesy are the master word to sintetize my experience there.
I really hope to spend again a week or more there. Reccomended

We thank our Guests for Their review: many thanks for the beautiful words!
We thank Them for everything, They have been wonderful guests!
We hope to welcome Them again in the future!
