Catania Accommodations

Enjoy an early morning swim in the Ionian Sea. Stay in a vacation rental – an apartment condo rental, or villa rentals. Privately-owned vacation rentals in the Catania province along the east coast of Sicily will be in the region that embraces the world-famous Mount Etna. Starting at Cape Taormina, take a private tour of one of the greatest volcanoes. Known to the ancient Greeks as the god of fire, Vulcan, and the home of Cyclops, the one-eyed monster, Mount Etna can be your winter wonderland or the place for summertime hikes in the woods. A private tour will bring you to a desert-moon environment of more recent lava flows and craters. Return to your villa rental and unwind on the terrace, enjoying a warm evening in the company of family or friends.

Get up, and at a leisurely pace, begin your day in the comfort of your holiday home accommodation – either a villa rental, one of the condo rentals, or an agriturismo - some with apartments. Privately-owned lodging is a welcomed choice for your holiday accommodations. Visit a vineyard overlooking the sea and stop to savour the wine. Wrap up the tour with a stop at a former Greek colony, the seaside village and resort of Giardini Naxos.

The wonderful Piazza del Dumo, with its Neo-Gothic St. Peter's Basilica, St. Sebastian's Basilica in the Sicilian Baroque style, and the 17th century Acireale Cathedral, is the place to visit in the town of Acireale. Take time to stop for a Cannolies and coffee. in a bar. Not to be outdone by other festivals in Sicily, it is home to the Carnival in August with its own spectacular allegorical and flower floats. Its long-standing tradition, starting in the middle of the16th Century, includes large paper mache figures represented as caricatures of famous people and politicians.

Visit the unique old-town area of Catinia, which was rebuilt using lava rock, in the Baroque style, after the earthquake of 1693. On a sunny day, walk down the wide avenues and stop awhile in its wide open squares. Visit the fish market and the fruit market. This metropolitan town is attached to the sea and sprawls inland, with blocks of tightly packed buildings interspersed with greenery, and then connecting with nearby villages in the outlying areas. The pleasant garden of Cavour Square, graced by a 17th Century marble fountain with the statute of the goddess Ceres at its centre, is a serene oasis in this modern-day city, and has benches just waiting for you to rest awhile. The sunken remains of a 2nd Century Roman amphitheater – at one time seating 16,000 people - is along one side of the Piazza Stesicoro.

Dotted with numerous fishing villages, Catania province is active, modern, rooted in history and interesting – a perfect Sicilian vacation. Fully-equipped villa rentals – often with a pool – offer a relaxing environment. The Bay of Taormina is carved out of the sea, with sheltering beaches that are welcomed by citizens and tourists alike, making it a popular resort destination. Place yourself in the comfort of a privately-owned accommodation with a sea view and add a beautiful note to your holidays. The remains of its Greek theatre, enlarged by the Romans, is a must see. Standing here you will witness the beautiful panoramic view of the Bay of Naxos and Mount Etna.

Taormina is the resort city of events: A car rally starts here and winds through numerous villages; more than 100 actors stage the nativity in the hamlet of Trappitello; there are numerous Christmas concerts; an exhibition is entirely devoted to chocolate ; an international fashion event is held; photographic and art exhibitions are staged; and the annual historical film festival is here for your enjoyment.

    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.
