Located less than 20 meters from Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square) and Piazza Universita (University Square), Amenano B&B is in the heart of the baroque historical center of Catania. This historical center has always been considered as the jewel of Sicilian architecture and has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Amenano B&B is situated on the second floor of an elegant and historical building built in the 700's by a noble family. Therefore, the 'palazzo' itself is considered to be a building of historical and architectural value.

Nightlife, known as 'Movida Catanese' is located a few meters away from our B&B with a many 'Caffe Concerto' and other typical local coffee shops specializing in delicious local pastries, pubs, restaurants, sidewalk café's, tavola calda and many other popular meeting places. By day, one can visit the most important monuments that the city has to offer including the Duomo, the Greco-Roman Theatre, the Amenano Fountain, La Pescheria (a historical and folkloristic fish market) the historical Palazzo dell'Universita, Via Crociferi, Via Etnea (the main shopping street) and everything else that normally can be found in the heart of a City like Catania. All this and more (including the very large daily open-air market) are within walking distance of our B&B.

Amenano B&B is certainly the best located lodging place to suite and cater for every visitor's needs and for them to conveniently see all that the city of Catania has to offer. From its strategic and central location visitors can easily reach the beaches, the mountains (Mount Etna), the railway station, bus terminus, the seaport, airport - all of which can be reached in a short time even by public transport.

The Amenano B&B has been recently renovated by its owner, an architect by profession, who, while maintaining the elegance of its historical structure, has inserted a touch of modernization and convenience. He has managed to develop an elegant ambiance by utilizing the available vertical space by creating a loft in every room. Departing from the traditional B&B's, every room is a mini apartment, totally independent from the rest of the building, and developed on two levels by way of an internal staircase. These mini apartments can accommodate up to four persons - two of whom are accommodated in the spacious loft area. Each room has a balcony overlooking typical historic center streets, leading up to the Via Etnea and the Palazzo degli Elefanti, and surrounded by beautiful baroque buildings. Each room has been developed to provide maximum comfort - in fact Amenano B&B is classified in the '3 Star' category. Each mini apartment has its own full private bathroom, mini bar, TV, air conditioner, direct Internet ADSL access and elegantly furnished. Although the B&B is located in the center of town, all rooms are spacious and airy with a quiet and serene atmosphere where one can relax in tranquility. Maximum hygiene and cleanliness are guaranteed - all rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and linen (sheets and towels) are also changed daily.

Amenano B&B offers its guests an impeccable service. The B&B is maintained to the highest quality and no detail has been left out in order to blend the modern with the traditional. Breakfast will be your occasion to taste typical food that forms part of our own tradition.
