Amenano B&B is located less than 20 meters from Cathedral Square and University Square, 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. 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 and everything else that normally can be found in the heart of a City like Catania. 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, totally independent from the rest of the building.
