Located in the heart of the city, adjacent to the majestic Palazzo di Giustizia (Courthouse) just behind the Palazzo delle Scienze (headquarters of the faculty of physics, mathematics, economics and commerce as well as housing museums of geology, mineralogy and vulcanology) and a short, two-minute walk from the Corso Italia, this elegant and homely apartment is situated on the elevated ground floor of a meticulously-maintained building in Via Firenze. Accommodations include one generous double-bedroom, a stylish and practical kitchen/living space complete with fold-out sofa (sleeps 1-2 people) and a sleek bathroom with shower and bidet – all recently renovated and fully furnished to the highest standard.
Perfectly suited to couples, small families or professionals alike, the apartment can accommodate up to four people.

Free and unrestricted on-street parking is usually available outside the building, but other parking facilities can be found close-by with payment only required during the day. Bicycles can be kept in the communal courtyard.

L'appartement de Manuela est très bien placé, près du tribunal de Catania. La rue est calme, et il est très facile d'y stationner. L'appartement se trouve dans une petite cour pleine de charme. Il est très bien agencé, spacieux, confortable, en bref parfait pour passer un bon séjour. Manuela n'étant pas disponible, c'est son mari qui est venu à notre rencontre, et c'est un super hôte : il nous a conseillé les incontournables de Catania et ses environs, mais aussi ses bonnes adresses personnelles. Vous pouvez réserver les yeux fermés!

Le logement de Manuela est très cosy. Moderne et optimisé. L'appartement est (URL HIDDEN) cuisine est bien agencé et idéal pour deux personnes pour un ou deux jours.Le manque de fenêtres est un peu oppressant (claustrophobe s'abstenir) Le logement est situé un peu loin du centre ville (1.5 kms) mais je déconseille la voiture. Pour la place de parking sur place, libre et gratuite c'est pas top.Les amendes tombent vite (35 E) et il vaut mieux éviter de prendre les places des résidents de l'immeuble (rayures sur la (URL HIDDEN) ville de Catane c'est Palerme en moins bien.Le marché au poissons est surfait et les lieux de visites peut nombreux. Reste l'Etna et Syracuse mais c'est une autre histoire. :-) Guy et Marie-Christine

Response from Manuela:
Claustrophobic? Pictures perfectly show the apartment. one window per room. The apartment is in the city centre but not in the historical part of the town. When you checked in, we told you to pay for the ticket if you was parking in the payment lots. You get back to the car 30 mins laters and obviously you was fined (it happen in every city, not just in Catania). There is not a residential parking lots, one side is free and the other one is a payment area (as we told you). where do you'd park your car? and how? in 20 years, no one ever did scratches my ride. Are you sure it happened on that street?. Thank you for taking your time to review our apartment. Manuela

L'abitazione è collocata in un punto dove è raggiungibile il centro storico comodamente a piedi. La corte è silenziosa e non sembra d'essere in centro città. La casa dotata di tutti i comfort e arredata con gusto. Siamo stati di passaggio ma tutto è stato praticamente perfetto. La consigliamo per visitare Catania.
