Going to Casa Barbero and seeing Antonio and Monica feels like home from home as this is now our third consecutive year we have been to stay.
This time we were using Casa Barbero as a base to explore the area so we caught a bus to Acireale and had a lovely meal at the picturesque fishing village of Santa Maria la Scala and enjoyed train trips to Taormina and Palermo.
Antonio and Monica are warm and generous with their time and local knowledge. Check in is easy - we arrived late so it was ideal that we could let ourselves in. Our flight was late in the day back to the UK and it was no problem to leave our luggage in the breakfast room. Our room was perfect - everything you need is on hand and the bathroom is small, well appointed and contemporary.
It was still warm enough in mid November to have breakfast amongst the greenery of the courtyard which was lovely. Antonio makes a great cappuccino!
Despite knowing Catania pretty well now I’m sure we will be back.More
