Situated in the heart of Catania’s historic centre, this penthouse apartment featuring pops of red, yellow and lime green greets its guests with a cheerful welcome. Dark accents in the living space add a touch of moodiness while the funky patterned wallpaper in the bathroom is sure to put a smile on your face each morning. Enjoy a traditional breakfast on the terrace accompanied with views of Mount Etna before heading back inside to plan your itinerary – will you begin with a trip to the famous Piazza del Duomo (reached in ten minutes by foot) or the 13th century Castello Ursino? Once sightseeing becomes hungry work, make a beeline for the seafood restaurants that surround the raucous Catania Fish Market. On days when you fancy expending a little more energy, the Salto del Cane hiking area is a forty-five-minute drive away.
