This place is it. You couldn't ask for a better host than Rosaria.....thank you Rosaria and I look forward to staying at your apartment again in the not too distant future.

The heart of the heart of Catania

  • 5 of 5

How hard is it to love Sicily, Catania, and the apartment when you are welcomed by such a beautiful person such as Rosaria. She met us with open arms (literally), led us to the apartment and made us feel at home instantly with some basic goods and a walk around the local area to make us feel at home after a 7 hour train trip.

The apartment itself is faultless. Spacious, all the mod cons and the world famous feature of a suitcase winch (although the apartment is only on the 1st/2nd floor).

You're right next door to the best markers I experienced in 8 weeks in Italy, and some fantastic restaurants.

However, buy the market produce and use the great kitchen facilities.

Rosaria, thank you so much. We will be in touch.

A perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed some days in Catania and immediately we felt to be home! The apartment is beautiful, clean, quiet and everything you could need is there (even more!). The location is perfect to discover the city, only few minutes walking are required to discover the Cathedral, the Roman theater and all places of interest). The market (2 minutes) is amazing! And Rosaria is a very nice person. When we will back to Catania, we will come again in this apartment.

Fab apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Rosaria was extremely helpful during the booking process, warmly welcomed us at the apartment on arrival and took us on a short tour of the area, pointing out restaurants, markets and places of interest etc.

The apartment, in a great location, was immaculate and quiet in the centre of the old town. Spacious air conditioned rooms with high ceilings, comfortable sitting room, a well fitted kitchen, including dishwasher and a powerful shower.

We had a lovely holiday, with days out to the coast and of course to Mount Etna. We enjoyed eating out in local restaurants, plenty of choice and cooking the freshest of fish from the local market. Don't miss the local ice creams!

We would certainly recommend this property.

A fantastic stay, perfect host

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful albeit short time in Catania at the “Casa di Chiara.”

The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything one would want. Rosaria gave us a generous gift of wine and paste di mandorle on arrival, but the cupboards are well-stocked with basic ingredients – combine this with the fantastic fresh produce at the market (circa 2 minutes walk) – you may well be tempted to stay in for dinner!

The location is fantastic for sight-seeing, and an early-evening passeggiata is a must, Catania is a small but bustling city at times. There are numerous restaurants, cafes and fresh produce shops as well as historical points of interest close by. We also made a trip to nearby Aci Castello where the basalt cliffs are a sight to behold.

Rosaria made our stay that much more special. She is a kind, hospitable and generous person, very friendly (and tolerant of my average Italian!) The short walk around the area was a real treat, there is no substitute for local knowledge in showing us the best places and it was nice to be able to get our bearings. We really appreciate all the extra effort Rosaria put in to making us feel at home and welcome. 'Going the extra mile' doesn't cover it.

Grazie mille e ci vediamo!

Chiara's house overlooks a small alley and, despite being in the heart of Catania, and a few steps away from the oldest open-air market in the city, you will be surprised about how quiet it is. We are in the historic center, between the medieval Ursino Castle and the triumph of the Baroque, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another UNESCO site is mount Etna, whose peak is visible from all across the city, just 40 km away. Around you, the ancient craft shops, restaurants and traditional taverns, pizzerias, pastry shops and pubs to suit all tastes.Just a little walk and you can reach Piazza Mazzini, the Ursino Castle, via Etnea, via Crociferi, the Pescheria (the open/air market), the Amenano Fountain, the Bellini Playhouse, the Greek Theater the church of San Nicolò l'Arena, the Benedictine Monastery and a lot more. The beach Plaia is only three kilometers away and is easily accessible by public transport. The bus stop for Syracuse, Ragusa, Palermo can be reached on foot in a few minutes.The bus stop for Taormina and Messina is in front of the Central Train Station, easily accessible by public transport.
