Ninni & Cristina are very pleased to open the doors of their home to all you fellow travellers looking for a friendly place stay, a real home-from-home, whether you are travelling on business or on holiday.

The apartment is situated on the second floor of a sunny palace dating from the 1800s, with large windows and balconies overlooking the walls of the 'Ursino Castle', behind which our gigantic Mt. Etna dominates the landscape, its powerful presence creating a dramatic atmosphere.

We are just moments away from a wide range of vibrant shops, cafés, bistros and restaurants along with the most lively and historic fish market on the island ' La Pescheria', which is just at the bottom of our street.

Here you can feast cheaply under the stars on local fish and watch the Sicilian life-style passing by while sipping a chilled glass of Sicilian wine.

We are only 10 mins. by bus/car from the airport, a 20 min. walk to a golden sandy beach and a convenient base for exploring the East coast of the island (Taormina, Etna, Siracusa, Pantalica & Enna are all within 1 hours drive).
