Set up your home in a renovated apartment with air conditioning and exposed brick walls at Orfanelli/80024. You can still feel the original Sicilian character as you walk across the tile floor to the kitchen. Start your morning by heating up your breakfast on the stove and make a pot of tea using the electric kettle. Sit around the kitchen table as you flip through your assignments and catch up on reading for your next class.
Step into the shower to freshen up before heading off to campus. Grab the hair dryer to style your look for the day, then pick out your wardrobe. Pack up your laptop and take some snacks from the kitchen cabinets on your way out the door. Check the time on your smartphone, then stroll over to the Università degli studi di Catania in less than ten minutes.
When it’s time to get back to your school work, sit down at the study desk and get comfy in the ergonomic chair. With an internet connection in the apartment, you can research upcoming papers or plan weekend excursions around Italy. Afterwards, relax on the spacious couches and rest your feet on the colorful rugs as you flick on the flatscreen TV.
Before heading out to dinner with friends, gather your clothes and throw a load of laundry into the washing machine. Even with all of the historic touches of your new home, you can rest easy about maintenance issues as the plumbing fixtures and many of the furnishings are brand new.
