The apartment is spacious with high ceilings. It was built in the early twentieth century and has been tastefully renovated. It’s located in the heart of the city centre, easily reachable by public transport. The metro station (Stesicoro) which you can use to explore the interesting outskirts of Catania and the airport shuttle bus stops (Trento and Stesicoro) are within a few minutes walking distance. Notable sights in the immediate surroundings are the Via Etnea as well as the ancient market.
This project consists of building an eco-sustainable urban space where travelers, globetrotters, remote workers and backpackers can live, eat, talk, work and create. We are planning on being sustainable in the first place, offering a pleasant place to live and sleep at no more than the cost of our rent. Once we reach this objective, we would like to open a home restaurant as we all love food and chatting :) (and had worked and studied as chef and waiters for many years). Finally we will be able to start with the third phase, which is to be an e-learning centre helping people to up-skill and learn new things.
The house is set to be a creative and cultural space for sharing, studying, having fun eating and getting to know each other. Four of the five rooms were furnished to host people, whereas the fifth, the main, and the terrace are common areas for sharing. Bright, big and comfortable, the rooms are decorated with wonderful antique flooring and typical high vaulted ceilings and equipped with air conditioning and heating. There are double beds and it’s always possible to add a single bed for a little price. There are sunny balconies, three bathrooms, one with disability access, two of them have showers.
The building was built at the beginning of the 900’s, the private terrace is extremely beautiful and peaceful. You are welcome to enjoy it.
You are at home, you can use the common areas and the kitchen, just enjoy, chill and respect the space and other people around you (be quiet after midnight:)).
Interaction with guests
We will share the house, I live with Michela, Davide, Valerio, Emanuele and Laura, we share a lot of our time in the house together reading, talking, being creative and studying.. you'll be very welcome if you want to share something of yourself with us :).
According to my previous experiences interaction is the best part of using Airbnb.
Other things to note
If you want to do breakfast here it is possible at a little cost that we can arrange (depends on the kind of breakfast you want: Italian, international, vegetarian,...).
Any advice on quantity as well as on preferences will be helpful as we try to avoid waste.

I 'm a curious guy who can't stop to marvel at life. For now, I live in Catania where I just wish to meet the greatest number of people and relate to them in order to let my mind to travel and expand :)
