Brilliant apartment, perfect location!
The apartment is two rooms in an old palace, with fantastic views over one of the busiest piazzas in catania. While we were there, we had constant entertainment right outside our window. The kitchen is quite limited but the local restaurants are fantastic. Fresh fish, often still flapping about comes direct from the daily fish market.
Max is the perfect host and set us up with a tour of mount etna with his friend Marco. You have to do the tour
Massimiliano's apartment is the best we have found on our European travels! Everything is just as described; a spacious, elegant apartment with everything provided. The views from both balconies over the Piazza are stunning, day and night - a great place to watch the world go by and get a really good impression of life in this fascinating city. Most of the attractions are within easy walking distance, as are the markets and supermarket. As you would expect, cafes and restaurants around the main piazzas are pricier than those a little further away. We found two good restaurants in Piazza Mazzini, both fine for vegetarians too, but there are so many to choose from. The public transport system is a little confusing, so we used tourist buses from Piazza del Duomo. From there you can visit Etna, take a trip north up the coast or go further afield in smaller minibus trips.
After a busy day out it was always good to return to the lovely apartment and relax. It was a perfect base for a fantastic city break. An unforgettable week!
Old World Charm
What a wonderful apartment - old world charm with eclectic touches. Location was beyond belief and owner was exceptionally accommodating. I would definitely book this apartment again!
Great place to stay in Catania. Excellent location in the center of the city. The apartment is spacious and clean. It is equipped with all the things you need. Max was an excellent host. Easily accessible and always willing to help. Met us at the apartment when we arrived. Explained all the details of the apartment and told us about the surroundings. Places to visit and eat. We definitely enjoyed our stay there.
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!
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.
