My fiancé and I found this rental very clean and spacious . Massimiliano (Max) was a great host. The location is perfect and very safe. It was close to all the best shops and restaurants. Catania is a great city. There is a pizza shop across the hall that was awesome. I didn't even know it was there until our 2nd night so there was no problem with noise or traffic. Very convenient for a late night craving. I would recommend this apartment to my friends for sure. I will also be back for I visit to Italy a lot . Thanks Max for everything!

Catanian Palazzo

  • 5 of 5

The wonderful apartment is located in the heart of Catania. It is large, beautiful designed and an excellent starting point for sightseeing, shopping and going out in the evening. Catania itself is lively. The surrounding region offers many possibilities for daytrips.

We loved the famous fish market nearby where we could buy fresh fruits, vegetables and fish every day.

Massimiliano is very good host. We found everything we needed for the first evening and the next morning at our arrival like water, juice, coffee, tea, fruits, bread, yam etc. He was very helpful in every respect of our stay.

Alltogether the place is brilliant for people who love urban living. Therefore we enjoyed out stay very much.
