Hi, we are a family of 4 (our son who lives and studies in Turin is 20, our daughter is 13). In the same condominium lives also our nephew who is 18 years old.
We live 2 km from Catania's centre, in an urban area, between the sea and the highest active volcano of Europe, mount Etna.
We enjoy to spend time with friends and family, organizing parties and sharing meals. We like trekking, meditation, music and we are involved in some social activities since we work in the education field. We try to eat as healthy as possible so our diet is pretty much a vegetarian diet.
We already hosted an ecuadorian girl for six months and we really enjoyed sharing reciprocly our lives so our house is open to anyone who wants to try an exchange experience!

We could help them to learn our languange and our culture. We will make them trying our typical food and we are totally available to organize tours around our area.
We would be happy to have someone to practice foreign languages, specially for our daughter.
Our area is well linked by a bus net. Catania is an active city and a good movida's centre: it's in front of the sea, and its roads are full of people and of life all night long specially during summer. But, as we said, the mountain allows also to enjoy the nature.
