case of special exhibitions, the City Council and the Archdiocese of Catania reserve the right to limit free
access; in such case the holders of Catania Pass will still be entitled to a discounted rate.
The card entitles the holder to use the public transport vehicles, within the valid dates and following
the modalities described at point #4.
The CTP also entitles the holder to enjoy discounts and benefits, thanks to agreements between the

to 24, 72 and 120 hours, respectively.
The card must be validated at the moment of the first use. When visiting one of the museums included
in this program, the holder has to fill the slots with hour, day, month and year in the front of the card.

Spacious, wonderfully decorated and stylish, this apartment was a great base from which to explore Catania. Only minutes from the Duomo and the bustling market, we loved everything about this place, not least the fully equipped kitchen and stunning views from every room. Exceptional!

This place is close to everything that you would want to see in Catania. It's spacious, comfortable, very clean and modern. It gets a little noisy at night but that's part of the neighborhood. Massimo was kind and extremely helpful. I will gladly stay there again.

Duca di Genova was absolutely wonderful! It was big, spacious, and comfortable. Massimo was extremely helpful and always in contact with a quick response through texting. He was there to welcome us with a fridge stocked with fruits, and various drinks. The owner of the flats was also in town and staying at the apartment next to ours which he owned. He invited us to his patio for drinks and told us where to go and what to see. The location was very conveniently located, with the water and city center nearby. Overall, it was a lovely experience, and I would definitely rent from Massimo again.
