We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in Catania, seeing in the New Year. And the location of this apartment was excellent for what we wanted. All the main sightseeing is within walking distance.
Nausicaa was brilliant throughout the whole experience, from booking to check out. She left basic provisions in the fridge for us, arranged our taxi pick up from the airport and helped with our restaurant booking for New Years Eve. She would also have arranged any excursions for us if we had wanted, though we found this easy enough to do for ourselves.
The apartment is up 4 flights of stairs and is on two levels with a spiral staircase between the floors, so not suitable for the elderly or less mobile. It is clean and well equipped, with a comfortable bed and two shower rooms/toilets and plenty of storage. The wifi was quick and reliable throughout our stay. The only minor issue we had was the loss of pressure in the shower, and a sudden change of temperature, if water was being used anywhere else in the apartment, but not a problem once you realise this happens. The apartment is located next to a busy market but you hear very little noise from the market, even in the morning when everything is being set up. There are plenty of bars and restaurants closeby, handy if you don't really want to do any of your own catering like us.
All in all an excellent choice for a visit to this lovely city. Thank you for everything Nausicaa.
