A prestigious penthouse in the city centre, set in a unique location in front of the Ursino Castle (Castello Ursino): the emblematic monument of culture of the city of Catania built by Frederick II of Swabia and dating back to the thirteenth century.

Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Spacious apartment with 2private bedrooms with own bathrooms. 3 terraces to overlook the city. Well equipped kitchen on main floor. Location was easy to see common tourist sites. Excellent restaurants immediately outside the entrance & and around corner across from a small church. One was a Trattoria & the other " Il Borne Frederico" (noted for pistachio meatballs).
Massimeliano and Sergio available via WhatsApp to answer all our questions. Sergio seamlessly arranged for Mount Etna tour by a most knowledgeable Vincenzo Romeo. We were picked up at the apartment by private car and driven to the volcano with non-stop information given for the duration. Sergio also arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport. Sergio also suggested many other points of interest that enticed us with the desire to return.
Apartment was located on the third floor with no lift. However after visiting Rome & Sorrento, we were in good shape to master the stairs.
