Sleeping on a sailing yacht just a few steps from the heart of Catania’s historical centre, comfortably moored at Catania’s marina: all this is possible thanks to our ‘Boat & Breakfast’ formula.
The innovative bed and breakfast solution offered by us at VelaCatania lends itself perfectly as a base for a short or long stay in Catania, in a unique, comfortable and very cosy accommodation with the original ‘Boat & Breakfast’ formula.
You got that right – we offer overnight accommodation (as an accommodation facility) on board our boat moored at the tourist port of Catania. In the morning, you get up and comfortably enjoy your breakfast (prepared by us) by the sea before tackling your day in the best possible way.
Our sailboat, a 44-footer with a teak cockpit and interior, is very cosy both outdoors and indoors.
The boat offers 4 cabins with a total of 8 berths.
The forward cabin offers two comfortable berths (double) and a spacious lounge. A cabin is added with no. 2 single beds (bunks) and others 2 aft cabins, each with double bed.
The boat-accomodation offers a total of two bathrooms with showers which, by the standard standards of a sailing boat, is considered quite spacious. This is rounded off by a fully equipped kitchen that is just as good as your own home!
Breakfast with typical Sicilian products will be served*.
(*special dietary requirements must be agreed in advance).
The city’s old harbour, now a marina for pleasure boats, mainly sailing boats, has recently been renovated, giving citizens and tourists a very pleasant promenade along the jetties.
Our boat is beautiful and very spacious, optimally located, a 2-minute walk from Catania’s historical centre. The train and bus stations are within easy walking distance.
The pier where the boat is moored offers 24-hour security and free parking all day. The adjacent neighbourhood is quiet and very liveable; within a few minutes you can reach traditional restaurants and the city’s main monuments.
The city’s main cultural and monumental attractions, as well as bars, restaurants, theatres and public gardens, are within easy walking distance from the port.
