Difficult to know what to start with as this place really is a pure delight!
Located in the middle of Catania's historic area, between the castle (Castello Ursino) and the fishmarket (La Pescheria), walking distance (10min) from the Cathedral (Il Duomo), it's location is outstanding for a city trip. If you've rented a car, you can park it on the street for free.
The Palazzu is a 3-strorey building, tastefully renovated by the owners. We stayed in the 2 apartments of the 1st floor (apt. 1 and 2). Both are equally well decorated and comfortable. The kitchen (apt. 2) is perfectly equipped to cook for a whole family (we have a toddler and a baby). We immediately felt at home.
The real gem of the Palazzu in fact is its owners. Patricia and Giovanni, are these kind of people you meet once and never forget! With a total respect of their hosts' privacy, they are welcoming, charming, cultivated and helpful. In our case, they played a key role in our successful stay in Catania and we look forward to being their clients again soon!
