“Charming, well equipped apartment”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment has everything you could wish for, it has a lovely mix of old and new and is situated in a beautiful historical building that has character and charm. The apartment has also been renovated to a high standard as the pictures show. It is centrally located so that shops and restaurants are within 5-10 minutes walk and other places of interest such as Etna are within easy reach of the apartment via local transport.

“Fantastic apartment, well equipped in a lovely central location”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is lovely, airy and spacious with excellent cooking and washing facilities. It is in the heart of the old city within walking distance of all the sights and surrounded by lovely restaurants. Marco was extremely helpful too.

The apartment is lovely, as the pictures show. I had everything I needed for my week stay and the owners are very helpful and friendly without intruding on your privacy. Great location for exploring the centre. Very easy to get to the stop for the airport bus, and also an easy walk to the bus stop to get to the sand beaches south of the city. I was very happy staying here.

The host's description of this apartment is all true.
This apartment has great location: very close to airport, bus station, sightseeings , shops and restaurants. 10 min walk to the rock beach. The building is just amazing and the interior of apartment is very cosy, comfortable and clean. The mix of old-fashioned pieces of furniture and new ones is great. You may spend quite evenings at small balcony. We really enjoy our time spending in Catania at this apartment. Thanks a lot for the hospitable hosts.

“Wonderful appartment”

Dear Marco,

Thank you so much for your fantastic apartment. I have no words to describe how wonderful is everything about "The Domes apartment".

Firstly, the description on this website is underestimated because the apartment is even better than on pictures. Its fantastic mix of modern and comfortable furniture in an old historical building.

Secondly, it couldn’t be better about its location. Everything is near. The bus station to go to the beach and the airport is about 5 min on foot. The bus station to go to see Etna, Taormina and other sightseeing of the Sicily is about 10-12 minutes on foot, the central station as well.

Its the heart of the most beautiful ancient part of the city, so everything is accessible on foot.

The host Marco and his family are friendly and help you with all your questions. Their house is extremely clean. Nothing to complain about.

I strongly recommend this apartment.

Thank you one more time.

Posso confermare che nell'appartamento, quando a Catania ci sono quasi 35 gradi, senza il condizionatore fa caldo. Come, temo, in tutti gli altri appartamenti di Catania. Confermo anche che c'è stato un malinteso sul prezzo, ma non che io abbia indicato un prezzo sbagliato: semmai, la signora ha prenotato per due invece che per quattro persone, e non mi ha segnalato il problema. Quanto alla terrazza, è esattamente come appare nella foto. Lo spazio che lasciamo ai nostri ospiti ha consentito a molti di loro di goderne con grande soddisfazione, concedendosi aperitivi, colazioni e cene, o leggendo e rilassandosi. Forse la signora ha trovato problemi per il fatto di avere due figli che non riusciva a tenere dentro uno spazio delimitato. Aggiungo che per eccesso di signorilità non ho voluto rivalermi sul deposito danni, ma che la signora ha mancato di segnalare qualche piccolo danno che ha lasciato.
