(first & last night)
To ease into European time and take the pressure off any possible delays or European airport connections, the 2022 program will begin with all participants and staff gathering at the Hotel Romano House in Catania center, on the evening of Saturday, June 25, after landing at any time during the day in the Catania Fontanarossa (CTA) airport. Participants can easily reach this centrally located hotel from the airport in 15 minutes via taxi for approximately 25 Euros. In addition to the first night of the program, we will also spend our last night in Sicily at this hotel at the end of the program on July 5, making it very easy for participants to get to the airport on the morning of Wednesday, July 6.
The 4-star Hotel Romano House is in an 18th-century noble building in the center of Baroque Catania, skilfully restored by a master architect. Rooms have luxury furnishings, air conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. A roof garden with gym is available. Part of the Romano Collection, the Romano House is within walking distance of central Via Etnea and the cathedral. At the front desk you can book a limousine with driver, a personal shopper, and airport shuttles. Il Riccio Restaurant serves Sicilian specialties and Mediterranean classics. You can enjoy international cocktails at the House Bar.
