Located in the heart of the historical center, the apartment is furnished in a comfortable style, with important comforts for travel: air conditioners, equipped kitchen, hairdryers, dishwasher, washing machine.Close to the joints of buses and no far from airport.
We are in an area wich, once, housed the hippodrome, gymnasium and an artificial lake where they carried out the spectacular naval battles, with the use of gladiators. The site was unfortunately affected by the violent eruption of 1669, are preserved in the subsurface archaeological treasures from various periods, but some remains of the 'Gate of the tenth', the medieval walls are still visible next to the church of St. G. to transit, located right near the house. Always next to the building, is the laboratory of the traditional 'Sicilian puppets' of F. lli Naples, with suggestive scenofgrafie period, while 150 meters is the Ursino Castle, the seat of the Civic Museum and numerous cultural events. Walking, or even doing the shopping, in the narrow streets of the 'Fish' (which is the heart of the popular feast of St. Agatha 3-5 February), easy walking distance from all the other sites of historical and artistic interest of the city. Not far away there is also a green area with a playground, the villa "Pacini," where a well is visible stretch of the river Amenano emerged.
The sea is not far, just 2 km from the sandy playa, or the same distance from the volcanic rock of the cliff. If you want to, well in advance, you can arrange boat trips sailing towards Acitrezza, Taormina or Siracusa.
Etna is well within reach by bus or jeep, with an experienced guide (on site details).
What is said of Catania is, in fact, that you can hike in the mountains (and maybe a drop-down in the snow, if the time permits ...) and then jump into the sea, being one of them just h. 1.30 of the car!
To conclude the evening, the entire historic center full of restaurants (both economic and Gourmet) and wine bar, will be able to secure to engage in lively nightlife of Catania.
