Catania, in eastern Sicily, situated on the slopes of Etna, it is much appreciated for its baroque old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for its beaches.
Catania's coast varies from the golden sands of Playa, rich in tourist facilities and bathing facilities (accessible with the 'D-line' AMT) to the typical beach of San Giovanni Li Cuti is that instead with rocky lava (accessible via the '534' AMT).

A few kilometers away you can dive into the sea of ??Aci Castello (accessible via the '534' AMT), where you can admire the remains of the sixteenth-century Norman fortress, or in that of Aci Trezza (accessible by car), renowned for its rocks (islands of the Cyclops) and the Lachea Island, a nature reserve of great geological interest.

Chief Mills (accessible by car) is just one of the magnificent seaside resorts of the coast (Fondachello, Giarre, Santa Tecla, Fiumefreddo, etc.) where you can enjoy fish and seafood freshly caught, to arrive in Taormina, Sicily pearl known all over the world.

Etna (accessible by car or bus line AST - stop Central Station), with its more than 3000 meters above sea level, is the highest active volcano in Europe. You can access his magical scenery of two pretty towns such as Sicilian Nicolosi and Zafferana.
During the winter the climate is mild as the Mediterranean regions of low although it is possible to ski on Mount Etna; summer normally not exceed 33/34 degrees as the sea and Mount Etna help keep the temperatures at these degrees, only rarely exceed 40 ° when Africa sends us his sirocco.

I loved the location of Massimo's place, which was near the fish market, and accessible to many points of interest, in particular Mt Etna. Massimo was a gracious host. His place was very clean and suited the needs of our group of 5 beautifully.

Massimo was the most warm and friendly host, he really went out of his way for us and genuinely cared about our happiness with his place. It actually felt like being at a Sicilian relatives home . We will definitely stay again. Plenty of room, clean and with every essential you would need . You can literally walk to piazza duomo and all over catania. We were able to take buses and trains or taxis to visit all the great surrounding areas. We loved our stay here. The neighborhood was very safe and grocery and restaurants all within reach, I would highly recommend.

Massimo was a friendly and helpful host. His house was very cosy and homely, and was very near to the centre of Catania. The house had all the facilities we could have wished for (television, dishwasher, etc). The only problem we had was with finding a parking place in the neighbourhood.

This is a lovely, roomy, comfortable apartment, well designed and equipped, ideal for anyone who wants to be on a quiet street right next to the bustling fish market and the Duomo, in Catania's centro storico. Also ideal both for nearby restuarants and for cooking at home. A great place, and Massimo is a great host!

Massimo is the perfect host. He graciously offered to meet our flight at the airport and drive us to his apartment. La Casa di Ambri was everything we expected and more. We spent over a week in Catania. Massimo's apartment was within walking distance to all of central Catania's historic district. When we had questions about the heating system on the second day Massimo came back to the apartment to personally explain everything to us again. Massimo gave us great recommendations for restaurants and with the famous Pescheria just a few hundred feet from our door we were able to buy fresh fish, produce and baked goods daily. At the end of our stay, Massimo insisted upon personally taking us back to the airport. Grazie & arrivederci Massimo!
