A GUEST HOUSE INSPIRED BY THE GENIUS OF VERDI
The B&B Nabucco is located in the historical center of Catania, in a mansion built in the second half of the nineteenth century by a very rich bourgeois family.
By the street's name Giuseppe Verdi, Alessandro, fond of classical music, and Giovanni, opera singer, were inspired to create a "bed and breakfast" dedicated to the great genius of Busseto and to three of his most famous works.
Unlike the majority of properties in the historic center of Catania, the B&B Nabucco has a lift.
Each morning guests will enjoy an excellent breakfast and delicious Sicilian sweets in the large living room which has an original glazed "art deco" of the 20s and a frescoed ceiling with "trompe l'oeil" caisson.
At guests' disposal is also another living room with a lovely terrace.
Renovated and decorated keeping the design of the building that houses them, the rooms are named after the Verdi's works.
Equipped with all amenities to offer the best to the guests who like to relax.
Catania is one of the most beautiful Sicilian town. For this reason UNESCO declared the city center World Heritage Site. Catania is located on the east coast of Sicily, at the foot of Mount Etna, and it is a veritable treasure trove of artistic, cultural and natural, the result of an ancient history, which dates back to 729 BC, the year of the founding of the city by the Calcidieses. Strolling in Catania streets and parks represents a real leap over the centuries, including Roman and Baroque buildings, picturesque lanes and spacious squares, green and coastal scenery corners.
Called by the Sicilians Mungibeddu or A Muntagna, to indicate its recognition as "The Mountain" par excellence, Etna is the higher and most active volcano in Europe.
The urbanized area, which consists of small and medium-sized centers, reaches 1,000 meters, while the cultivated and wooded areas reach up to 1,500 meters.
Etna has a great variety of geological landscapes and dense forests with endemic species, desert areas with volcanic rocks which are covered with snow during the winter.
The fishing village of Acitrezza, a popular destination for summer tourism, is developed on the Ionian coast of Sicily between Catania and Acireale and was made famous by both the Homeric legend of the battle between the Cyclops Polyphemus and Ulysses, both by Giovanni Verga with the novel "I Malavoglia", the absolute masterpiece of literary realism. Today the whole area is Nature Reserve and Marine Reserve. The "Faraglioni", as well as the island Lachea that acts as lead partner, are a wonderful procession of islets and are evidence of an underwater volcanic eruption in prehistoric times.
