I love nature, and of course the seaside, and I appreciate the small places off the tourist trails. When traveling my daily routine gets quite busy but I try to leave room for every possible unexpected surprise. Especially on the last day usually I prefer to not schedule anything but to stroll and enjoy the last breaths of freedom that the place I'm visiting could hold. I’m looking for other TripMates who enjoy deep conversations, cultural exchanges, and amazing local food.

Our exclusive stay is in the historic center of Catania: a huge terrace will allow us to share drinks, laughter, and many sunsets. Upon arrival, there is a tourist tax payment of €8. You can easily reach the property from Catania airport in about half an hour, getting on an Alibus. You pay directly on board and the trips run every 15 minutes. Getting off at Piazza Stesicoro, you will arrive at the hotel in just 10 minutes on foot! Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!
