Location Information

The modern Bad B&B And Design is set in Catania's centre, a 5-minute walk from the seafront and the harbour. It is 200 metres from La Pescheria historic fish market and Piazza Duomo.

Bad Design’s soundproofed rooms mix design and modern art. They all come with air conditioning and TV. Free Wi-Fi is provided in the whole building.
The bed and breakfast is around a 10-minute drive from Catania Fontanarossa Airport and Catania Central Station. Staff can help you arrange trips to Mount Etna.
A bus station is just 100 metres away and has links to other Sicilian cities. Ferries to Naples, Civitavecchia and Genoa leave from Catania's harbour. Catania, situated on the edge of the glittering Mediterranean is also home to Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe. There is a very rich baroque historical center (world heritage) but also companies at the vanguard of innovative technology. There is the "seltz" ritual, to be experienced at the small kiosks and a blossoming of new clubs, discotheques and wine bars. In contrast with the wonderful feast of patron Sant'Agata there is a night "movida", with many young people pouring into the streets and squares every night. Catania has a unique soul, always moving and bubbling, where contrasts blend together naturally. BAD is in the beating heart of Catania: in a XIX century building, next to the historical fish market "la Pescheria" and within a stone's throw of the Cathedral and main monuments of the city. Furthermore BAD are only a few minutes away from the airport, the train station and the port, and just 100 meters from a bus station which connects to other main Sicilian resorts.
