Condo/Apartment
The apartment consists of the ancient noble floor of the Palazzo Paternò Castello built in the 18th century by the architect Stefano Ittar (among his works Porta Garibaldi, Piazza Mazzini, the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, the Basilica della Collegiata, the dome of the Benedictine monastery and Piazza Dante). The structure consists of five rooms, perfectly furnished, all with frescoes of the eighteenth century in excellent condition, two bathrooms, a kitchen, four balconies on Via Etnea and four on the inner courtyard. The first two rooms are the entrance rooms, with some fragments of fresco still visible. Both rooms have a large balcony overlooking the internal courtyard. The main hall is over sixty square meters and five meters high. The vault is completely frescoed with a round represe...The apartment consists of the ancient noble floor of the Palazzo Paternò Castello built in the 18th century by the architect Stefano Ittar (among his works Porta Garibaldi, Piazza Mazzini, the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, the Basilica della Collegiata, the dome of the Benedictine monastery and Piazza Dante). The structure consists of five rooms, perfectly furnished, all with frescoes of the eighteenth century in excellent condition, two bathrooms, a kitchen, four balconies on Via Etnea and four on the inner courtyard. The first two rooms are the entrance rooms, with some fragments of fresco still visible. Both rooms have a large balcony overlooking the internal courtyard. The main hall is over sixty square meters and five meters high. The vault is completely frescoed with a round representing the Eros rape of Psyche in the center. The salon was used as a music and reception room with an ancient Catanese nobility and presumably also Wagner was one of the guests of this Paternò Castello cadet family. The lounge has two balconies on Via Etna, the main street of Catania, from which you can see the central square of the city (Piazza Stesicoro and Piazza Duomo) and in the background the Etna. In the lounge there are two tables, one for dining and one for breakfast, a sofa, an armchair and a working piano. The main bedroom is very large, with a frescoed roof in red and turquoise and fantastic animals. The tired room has a double bed, the possibility of adding an extra single bed, TV, air conditioning, a balcony on Via Etnea, a wardrobe, a turn of the century dresser with mirror and a very large bedside table with drawers. The second room is extended with frescoed roofs in gray and mustard. Also this room has a balcony overlooking Via Etnea and is equipped with air conditioning and heating. It is equipped with a century-old chest of drawers with mirror, a crystal, a poor art wardrobe and a large mirror. The kitchen has tiled floors and tables and services in pietra serena and porcelain. There is a fully functional gas cooker, a fridge, a freezer, a toaster, an Italian-style coffee-maker, coffee, sugar, salt and the favorite utensils. From the kitchen it is possible to go out in a long balcony overlooking the internal courtyard of the building. There are two bathrooms: one is equipped with sanitary ware and a marble bath tub dating back to the end of the nineteenth century with stone leonine feet (it can also be used as a shower), while the second has only sanitary fittings and a corridor serving from antibagno. The apartment in total more than two hundred square meters. All areas of the house will be available to the guest. If required more you can access a small indoor condominium courtyard where you can store bicycles or mopeds. I will always be available for any need of guests. I live just a few minutes from the apartment and it will be easy for me to satisfy any request. For any information on local, historical monuments or places to visit (in Catania or in the province) I will be happy to answer. The apartment is equipped with free WI-FI. Please do not smoke inside the apartment in order not to ruin the ancient frescoes of the rooms. In order to smoke there are the first two entrance rooms and the many balconies. Small pets are allowed. The apartment is located in the historic center, between Via Etnea and the main squares (Stesicoro, University and Duomo). Via Montesano is closed to traffic and is among the small characteristic and tourist streets of the city. Around there are many bars, pubs and restaurants, the area of Catania nightlife (Piazza Vincenzo Bellini), the Teatro Massimo, the amphitheater, the Odeon and the Greek theater, the cathedral and the Crociferi street and the Benedetti monastery (heritage Unesco as the whole of Catania's baroque style). The premises are many and for all tastes, from traditional cuisine to fast food, from ethnic food to local or international desserts. The area is perfectly served by vehicles, you can easily get to the station (about five minutes by car or bus) or the airport (the bus stop is a few meters from the apartment and to get there takes less than fifteen minutes). In Via Giovanni di Prima there is a very large non-guarded parking lot, or in Via Cosentino a paid parking lot (Bellini parking). Both are open all night.More

The very original apartment belongs to the "piano nobile" (= beletage, 2nd master floor) of the historical and massive Palazzo Trigona (formerly of the dukes of Misterbianco), conveniently situated in the vivid core of Catania, at the corner of its central axis via Etnea. There...More
