Catania Vacation Rentals by Owner

Catania is an Italian city on the east coast of Sicily facing the Ionian Sea, between Messina and Syracuse. It is the capital of the homonymous province, the second-largest city in Sicily and the tenth in Italy. Vacation rental accommodation in Catania are minutes away from the Catania Seaport, the Catania Fontanarossa International Airport, the central train station and the Sicilian motorway system.

As well as ruins from the ancient city, the town boasts a wealth of fine Baroque architecture. One of the best Roman structures near historic apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals is the Roman Theatre in Via Vittorio Emanuele next to the round Odeon, a smaller auditorium. Close by in Via Rotonda, the church of Santa Maria della Rotonda is founded on the remains of Roman baths. The lava-and-marble Roman Amphitheater, part of which can be seen in Piazza Stesicoro, dates to the second century AD.

Among Catania's more recent sights are the many Baroque churches and palazzi located close to vacation rental lodging and villas, including the heavily-peopled facade of Palazzo Biscari. The Museo Civico in the stumpy grey fortress of Castello Ursino houses a range of exhibits from all eras of Catania's history.

The Baroque city centre of Catania is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Piazza del Duomo is Catania's principal square and most of the town's vacation rental accommodations are close by. In the centre is a much-photographed eighteenth-century lava statue of an elephant, supporting an Egyptian obelisk. The Duomo itself is one of Catania's grandest sights.

In close proximity to eclectic apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals you will find the town's theatre, Teatro Massimo Bellini with its grand frontage and lavish interior. Its name honours local hero Vincenzo Bellini, the composer whose opera Norma gives its name to one of the culinary specialties of the region. The Museo Civico Belliniano contains mementos from all stages of the composer's short life. Also named after him is an ornamental public park, Villa Bellini, situated in walking distance from vacation rental accommodations.

Catania’s vacation rentals are dramatically situated between the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna, Europe's greatest active volcano. When staying in apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation in Catania, plan to visit the small towns around the National Park. The Circumetnea is a small railway line which circles the base of the volcano, leaving from Catania and terminating in Riposto.

    Catania (Sicily - Italy) It's a unique city because we have the biggest European Volcano, still alive, at our feet -"Etnea" and the beautiful Ionian sea that inspired "Odissey". Maybe the only place where you can go swimming in the morning and skydiving in the afternoon. In the City Centre where you do not need a car to get around, I want to introduce you my personal little pearl: A beautiful little ground floor apartment at the City Centre of Catania. The apartment is located in a quiet street in a residence with trees and flowers there are 4 mini apartments in a perfect "Melrose Place" style. In 30 square metres, we have a room divided in two areas by three bookshelves. In one area there is a big sofa (it's even a king size bed), a desk, and a 37" LCD TV. In the other area a king size bed with other furniture for your clothers. Another room is a complete kitchen with a table, and then a little bathroom with the shower. The apartment is very small, but cozy, perfect for a couple or a couple with a child. The apartment has four windows one of these on the Street of Via Ficarazzi while the other overlooks the garden. Animals are welcome. You can find all you need in a range of 100/200 metres. Just a few steps to the supermarket, greengrocer, bakery, butcher, fishmonger, tobacconist, pharmacy, bowling, bar, restaurant, stadium, Hospital, Zoological Museum, Botanical Museum, ... I'm very tired and I can't list everything, but you are at the Centre of town so you can walk anywhere. The apartment is 20 metres from the bus that can take you everywhere. If you check the address with software like "Google maps", or other you will see you are near "Villa Bellini" (the city park where you can rest after a day of strolling), the "Via Etnea" (most important street that cuts Catania in two, an absolute "must see"), the "Anfiteatum", The "Duomo", and other sites.
