    We are very happy to have found this great location. To hear the fish traders in the morning. To eat cornetti in the best cafè's tight at the corner. The apartment is perfect as a starting point for any sightseeing as almost all important sights can be reached on feet. We really liked it here and will definitely come back with friends. Thanks also to Oksana, very helpful to us. Susan and Margit from Austria

    September 2023

    We spent two weeks in our comfortable Penthouse apartment in Catania. The location was perfect not only for visiting the important local sites, but also for taking day trips from the Borsellino bus station. The apartment was spacious, well – appointed and clean. We enjoyed many meals on our terrace overlooking the Piazza Duomo and the St. Agata alla Badia. Oksana was efficient, responsive, helpful and quick to take care of any issues. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Catania. Maria, Dan and Sue Rodhe Island USA

    Wir danken Oksana für den reibungslosen Ablauf und sind immer noch geflasht von der tollen Wohnung in dieser 1A-Spitzenlage. Hier fehlt es einem an nichts und die langen Nächte auf der Dachterrasse werden uns immer in Erinnerung bleiben. Genauso wie Catania als Stadt, die uns in dieser einen Woche nie langweilig geworden ist.

  • Mr. Mikolaj , Poland

    August 2022

    I enjoyed my stay in Penthouse Duomo in Catania. The location was superb - we were right above the Piazza del Duomo with unobstructed views of the Sant'Agata cathedral, with a huge terrace fitted with two separate sitting areas and a dining area that could be accessed directly from the master bedroom. Even though the apartment is in the heart of the city, it has a completely private feel. Apart from the main terrace, there's also one more - accessed via the kitchen on the upper level. The apartment is very spacious and had all the amenities we could need and more. A gift basket with local wine and products was a great, personal touch. I would definitely stay there again!

  • Ms. Gudrun , Germany

    Wir hatten wunderbare Tag im Herzen von Catania. Das Wetter war herausragend und die große Dachterrasse haben wir in vollen Zügen genossen. Das Haus, war genau richtig für uns - Cafe unten, die Piazza und der Markt - ideal für Foodies! Wir können das nur empfehlen

  • Ms. Shannon , U.S.A.

    May 2022

    We had an excellent stay at the gorgeous Penthouse Duomo. Oksana was a gracious and most helpful host, helping us with everything from where to get our covid test, to how to prepare the apartment for the expected thunderstorm (wrongly!) predicted by metereologists. We are blessed to be able to see the world, and rarely encounter and apartment and host as nice as this one.

    July 2018

    The apartment is absolutely gorgeous. Its a great location right in the heart of Catania.

  • Mr. Andrea , U.S.A.

    June 2018

    The entrance to the building needs significant remodeling. It makes a very bad first impression, especially when you consider how luxurious and well kept the penthouse is.

  • Mr. Pierre , Canada

    April 2018

    The assistant was not sufficiently fluent in English or French to communicate adequately but she tried to be most helpful. In the kitchen, the finish of drawers and cupboards was peeling, making a bad impression. On the terrace, the metal flower baskets were unstable and banging on the floor when windy. Disturbing during the night. Overall, the property deserves 9.5 over 10.

  • Ms. Deborah , Italy

    December 2017

    Casa meravigliosa arredata con gusto, panorama da sogno. Catania bella!

  • Mr. Stefan , Germany

    October 2017

    We travel a lot, we have been in nice places before, but this was different from the very first moment we came. To start with the key holder: not a stressed agency lady but a polite and helpful host. Then the apartment: sorry to say that, but in Italy it’s not easy to find a place where everything works form internet to shower. We felt at home from the very first minute. It feels like a private home, with all the books, the candles and the generous equipment (we have seen luxury flats without wineglasses). Thank you for the welcome presents, everything of a very high quality level: exactly what we would have left for our friends. After the first day, we discussed the possibility to come back, not just for a week but for a longer period. Thank you so much!

  • Ms. Jordana , U.S.A.

    October 2017

    We used Penthouse Duomo for our 6 nights in Catania and it was perfect for my family. What a wonderful apartment in a very central location! The church bells were wonderful to listen to while drinking espresso on the terrace. We will definitely stay there again when we come visit family.

  • Ms. Michaela , Singapore

    July 2017

    A beautiful property in a fabulous location. It was a real treat for our family to stay here for a few days in July 2017. Luxurious, clean, spacious and the roof terrace is stunning.
