You can find us in Catania. The city is situated on the east coast of the island and thanks to its strategic location you can visit the most beautiful eastern locations of Sicily: Syracuse, Etna volcano, Taormina, Caltagirone and Noto valley. Our B&B is in a charming place of the historic town centre (medieval alley) next to the majestic Benedictine abbey. The renovated building of the 18th century made in Sicilian style is provided with 3 double rooms, each with bathroom, air condition, internet, fridge for guests, hairdryer, and room service. Don't miss our typical breakfast, served on the roof terrace.

Our B&B inn is located in a strategic point (for shopping etc.) of Catania near the archaeological site which is just a few steps from the shopping promenade, the shopping street and the "catania night life". Furthermore you can find there an excellent bus connection to important locations and we even have a bus stop in front of our house. Also the universities are near from there. By bus you can reach the hospitals within 5 minutes and yoùll need approx. 15 min. to arrive at the coast (beach or cliffs).

We're not far from the railway station and the harbour (10 minutes). In about 15 minutes you can get to Catania airport by bus. We're waiting for you!

Collocazione ideale per le mie necessità, silenziosa, tranquilla, pulita. Colazione con delle marmellate fatte in casa eccezionali. La signora Ada è una persona squisita, come le sue marmellate.

Ho soggiornato dalla signora Ada con mia figlia di 10 anni e siamo state benissimo. Il suo B&B offre tutto il necessario per un soggiorno comodo e piacevole. Si trova in un vicolo lontano dal traffico ma a pochi passi dalla centralissima via Garibaldi, che con una passeggiata di 15 minuti porta a piazza Duomo e da lì alla via Etnea che attraversa la città per alcuni chilometri e dove si trovano negozi, ristoranti, bar e pasticcerie con ogni genere di specialità siciliane. Un valore aggiunto è la gentilezza e disponibilità della signora Ada, la colazione sulla terrazza con marmellate preparate da lei e naturalmente il suo ristorante appena fuori dal B&B aperto nel fine settimana, dove abbiamo potuto gustare alcune delle sue ricette. Tornando a Catania sicuramente soggiorneremo di nuovo da lei. Grazie Ada.

Are ADA and are happy to welcome you to my B&B! I divide myself between my study of architecture and a typical Sicilian restaurant that is next to B&B and realized where my sweet you can taste at breakfast. See you soon.

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
