The idea of starting the Bed and Breakfast “A Casa di Marco” comes from the desire to valorize our splendid region, rich of traditions, culture and flavours. We gladly offer our hospitality and cordiality, and we’re happy for being able to greet so many people who often end up becoming our friends. It is our aim to make our guests smile both when they arrive and when they leave. In our facility you’ll find a kind and helpful atmosphere, as expected from a true Bed and Breakfast. Since it is in a residential context, you will also find a park full of green and an area where easily and safely parking your car. The B&B “A Casa di Marco” is located on the first floor of a building equipped with a disabled accessible elevator and there are no structural obstacles to wheelchair access. We really care about all those who have hospitalized relatives and who are in need of a lodging to stay near them. That’s why our B&B is close to many hospital facilities, such as “Cannizzaro Hospital”, “Centro Catanese di Medicina e Chirurgia”, “Gretter private hospital”, “Carmide private hospital” and the General Hospital (Policlinico).
The Bed and Breakfast “A Casa di Marco” has four spacious, well-lighted and carefully furnished rooms, all of them designed to offer our guests as much comfort as possible. Each room has LCD TV, hairdryer, air conditioning, insect screens, mini-bar and a personal bathroom; in addition, beach towels are available. They all have a private balcony with a relax area where you can have the rich breakfasts, also served in our bright living room.
You can require a self service breakfast; if so, you can help yourselves to the fridge in the kitchen, where you can find milk, yogurt, butter, jam, fruit juice, tea and a tasty coffee, or to the living room, well-provided with homemade cakes and pies, muffins, croissants, jam, nutella, toasted bread, cookies, honey and fresh fruit. You can have breakfast in the balcony of your room or, alternatively, you can take a seat in our breakfast room and let us serve you.
Bed and Breakfast “A Casa di Marco” has made an agreement with a nice restaurant-pizzeria located in Acicastello, right in front of the beautiful, crystal clear sea. There you’ll be able to enjoy many typical courses of sicilian cuisine.
Our guests can benefit from our agreement with one of the most beautiful beach resorts in Catania; it is located along the cliff of Acicastello and it makes available a private hall and a terrace.
The B&B “A Casa di Marco” is in front of the majestic and enchanting cliff of Catania, a place characterized by beautiful seascapes and artistic areas; here people often go jogging or riding bycicles and many tourists go visit it to enjoy the view of the sea and of the untouched nature. The area of the cliff, along with the seafront Ognina, is with no doubt one of the most beautiful shores in the eastern Sicily and it connects the city center and the northern periphery with the districts along the shores of the Ionian Sea. The black beach in San Giovanni Li Cuti, too, is very well-known: it’s packed with bathers during Summer and it probably is an unmatched in the world attraction. Our B&B has a privileged position between the sea and the city, so you’ll spend your holidays in Catania with relax and peacefulness. Everything you may need is at your fingertips: restaurants along the coastline, chinese restaurants, pizzerias, beach resorts, discotheques, fitness resorts, wine bars, McDonald’s, pharmacies, tobacco shops, bakeries and a hypermarket a few meters far from our facilities. All those who prefer sand beach can go to the Playa: kilometres of private beaches resorts you can reach by city bus or by our exclusive ‘transfer service’. You’ll be able to reach, in just a few minutes, “Cannizzaro Hospital”, “Centro Catanese di Medicina e Chirurgia”, “Gretter private hospital”, the General Hospital (Policlinico), the exhibition complex “Le Ciminiere”, Piazza Europa, the city center, the area of Duomo, via Etnea, the Roman amphitheater, “Massimo Bellini” theater, via Crociferi, “Villa Bellini” and “La Pescheria” (historic and folkloristic ichthyic market).
