A nice bed and breakfast in Catania located in Via Umberto
The B&B Picone, consisting of 4 independent rooms (3 double and 1 triple) with balcony, internal bathroom, wireless internet, TV and air conditioning (besides the breakfast room and the adjoining kitchenette), is located in the heart of the historic center of Catania, on the picturesque Via Umberto, in a large and bright apartment completely renovated on the first floor of an ancient building of the early twentieth century, located close to the colorful Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, with its crowded ciospi – characteristic kiosks where delicious drinks based on seltz with lemon or variegated typical syrups – and a few steps from the most important city street, the Via Etnea, the “Catania living room” – where you can still breathe the atmosphere of the eighteenth-century city, so risen after countless natural disasters – with its splendid baroque, the wide lava stone sidewalks and the elegant shops.
The central location allows you to easily reach the most important public buildings and city sites of greatest architectural, historical and cultural interest on foot.
Thanks to the public transport that passes on via Umberto (one stop is right under the B&B) or in the immediate vicinity, it is possible to easily reach even the most decentralized destinations, such as the railway and suburban bus station, the airport and, above all, the promenade and the various beaches that characterize the Catania coast: from the lava stone cliffs, forged by ancient eruptions of Etna (and in summer equipped with practical solariums), to the golden sandy expanse of the Playa.
All these features, in addition to the typically family welcome, make the B&B Picone the ideal place for a tourist or business stay, especially for the visitor who arrives in Catania by train or plane, who if necessary can take advantage of the taxis that stationed at a short distance. For those who prefer travel by car, the area is widely served by convenient (paid) parking.
