The apartment with its 12 balconies faces to three sides - Via San Giuliano, a side street closed to traffic and the large central courtyard of the palace. The marvellous baroque stairway, equipped with a latest generation lift in glass and steel, which is the result of a restoration that has brought the whole building to its original beauty. Inside, the heart of the house is the big dancehall of 50 square meters, with eighteenth-century frescoes on the ceiling and trompe l'oeil on the walls. Adjacent to the living room, a small library, the television room, a study and a large dining room with a hallway leading to the kitchen and the service rooms.

The antique window frames have been restored with double glazing, green iron shutters draw on the design of ancient wooden shutters, ornamented floors of the early '900 have been restored and maintained throughout the apartment except the living room covered with Comiso stone.
The sleeping area has three double bedrooms with private bathroom, disengaged by a wide corridor and balconied.
The entire apartment is air conditioned and with individually controlled heating.
Ancient and evocative spaces shaped by contemporary living with full respect for their historical value.
Designed as a directrix that comes from the sea to plunge then in the heart of baroque Catania, Via Antonino di San Giuliano is undoubtedly one of the arteries symbol of the Elephant city, and it narrates, even today, an important slice of the history of the Etnean chief town.
At the beginning of the XVIII century Catania grew both as an urban centre as a centre of business interest, and around via Sangiuliano were undertaken various works for the construction of Baroque style mansions. Fundamental was the engagement of illustrious Catanian architects, such as Alonzo di Benedetto and Francesco Battaglia, then Girolamo Palazzotto from Messina, Giovan Battista Vaccarini from Palermo and Stefano Ittar from Tuscany.
Throughout its course, which starts from the intersection with via VI Aprile and ends on top of the hill Montevergine, are placed very prestigious palaces, together with numerous hotels that welcome each year thousands of tourists and visitors from around the world. Interestingly, the peculiarity shared by the majority of the buildings, which in very rare exceptions exceed the height of the third floor, in order to avoid the risk of collapses during natural disasters such as those experienced on the island in the second half of the XVIth century . Moreover, in the immediate neighbourhoods of Via Sangiuliano are situated several theatres of the city, such as the magnificent Massimo Bellini Theatre. Lastly, at the sides of the street, the large presence of artisans, shopkeepers and small workshops help to liven up the Via San Giuliano life.
