Catania, Province of Catania, Sicily
La Casina ("small home") is a studio apartment newly refurbished in the pulsating heart of ancient Catania, between Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square), the historical fish market "à piscarìa" and the medieval Castello Ursino (XIII cent.)

Completely indipendent, on the ground level of a quiet side-street, it is an interesting and discreet alternative to the usual Bed&Breakfast.

From its central location, it is easy to reach the Alcalà bus station (3 min. walk to Piazza Borsellino), where continuous connections can bring you to the Airport, Train Station, and all other touristic destination in Sicily.

The flat is equipped with full kitchen, fridge, air conditioning/heating, tv, cd/dvd/mp3/radio and wireless internet connection.

Nice one-room apartment with kitchen and shower. Not quiet due to street, but right in the centre of Catania, next to the lively fish market.

Enrica met us with a huge smile and hug and within a minute we felt at home.The room is beautifully colourful, cheerful, well appointed and welcoming; just what you need after a day walking around crazy Catania! The city doesn't appear to sleep and beeping of horns and driving the wrong way up one way streets etc is the norm....

Management response:

Ciao Jeff&Anela! I would like to be a kangaroo to jump to Australia to meet you again! It has been a pleasure to know you! I wish you a life full of sun, goodness and happiness. Big hugs from all of us!

Perfect for our weeklong stay. Great location! Just as pictured. Enrica was fabulous and very accommodating to our arrival time, as we got in quite late. Upon arrival there were these delicious marmalade biscuits and bottled water in fridge. Everything we needed was in the apt. including extra shampoo and sun lotion. There was even some fresh basil and coffee!...

Thanks a lot for your review! It's been a pleasure to have you, and we hope to see you again in Sicily! Kind regards & Sunny Ciao :) Enrica &...
