We stayed at Hotel Etnea 316 for the first part of our Sicilian adventure. The hotel is in a great location - easy to find on one of the main streets in Catania and the bus from the airport stops very close to it. It is next door to a couple of lovely cafes where you can find traditional Sicilian pastries, snacks and drinks. You can also cross over the road and walk straight into the Villa Bellini park if you fancy a relaxing stroll. Walking into the main part of Catania takes about 15 minutes. The staff were all friendly and welcoming; they were happy to make recommendations of where to eat, and also make reservations for us. The rooms were clean and perfectly functional. We also booked a Mount Etna+Catania tour with Marco and loved every second of it! Marco was a welcoming and engaging guide, telling us all about the history of Catania and then the geological aspects of Mount Etna itself.
Overall, we would thoroughly recommend Hotel Etnea 316. Stay here, get to know Catania and go on the Etna tour!!More
