Apartment located in the 18th-century
heart of Catania.
The apartment is in the 18th-century heart of Catania, and takes its name, Civita, from the traditional name for this elegant old quarter. It is situated on the first floor of a palazzo, and one of its most appealing features is its typical terrazzino, a lovely secluded terrace perfect for sunny breakfasts, lazy aperitivi or relaxed summer evening dinners.
The apartment has been intelligently restyled, and the result is a masterly fusion of ancient and modern, of the classical and the bohemian, of frescoed ceilings and ornate gilded mirrors with an eclectic selection of modern and ethnic furniture and works of art, the latter gathered by the owner on her extensive travels around the globe.
An evocative entrance gives access to a comfortable and capacious dining room. Opening off here is a little study, and a living room furnished with comfortable sofas. Beyond here is what Italians call the ‘night zone’, with two bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities the other with its own, external bathroom.
Sicilian houses are always designed with one room opening onto another (rather than using corridors), so returning to the living room, you’ll find access as well to a large and well-equipped kitchen with a comfy TV corner, and a door opening onto the secluded and furnished terazzino, the perfect spot for making the most of the warm evenings.
The apartment is ideally located for anyone interested in exploring the treasures of Catania’s compact Baroque centre, from the incredible (and raucous) fish market, to the cathedral, the Bellini Museum and the Roman theatre. Catania is also an excellent base for anyone interested in exploring Etna. Catania international airport is very easily accessible by bus or taxi.
