Catania

We arrived at the Unu Palace Hotel around 1pm. Rita greeted us and began our check in. Rita is a marvel. She is so sincere and attentive and clearly wants her customers to enjoy every moment of their trip. Once we settled into our room off we went to explore the town. Catania is the second largest city in Sicily and feels quite urban with many local people spilling into the streets shopping or doing business. After a walk about we found an outdoor cafe and sampled the local "rice balls". Sloppy and gooey they were tasty to try. 

We returned to the hotel for a "siesta" after which we enjoyed dinner and drinks on the hotel roof. The drinks and wine were very good, the food enjoyable but not outstanding. The service was attentive and professional. The bartender was especially energetic and knew his craft. 

Our room was a decent size with a walk in closet. Also had a good view.
