  • The House of the famous Sicilian writer is located near the Cathedral of Sant'Agata, in the street in front of the teatro romano, via Sant'Anna. I didn't think you could visit. Instead on the second floor of this building in the heart of Catania, is the apartment where he was born and died Giovanni Verga. Excellent explanation of the audio-guides that are given at the entrance: really detailed and engaging! A place to visit!!

  • I enjoyed it because there was a crazy hot since I visited in August. Aside from the library there was little else of his personal items or more. Could be the home of another writer and you wouldn't notice.

  • The birthplace of the great Giovanni Verga is in an alley who insist on calling it away and if I know the name you can reach it. No indication in the nearby piazza Duomo or near. Housed in a dilapidated complex, once inside you change log. Well appointed home, noble but understated, rich in memories and original writings as well as a large library. Catania should do more to rod. Visit absolutely recommended. Roberto & Luisa reggio calabria

  • Very intimate house where the famous author lived the last years of his life. Students can visit it for just 2 euros (badge needed) and the price also includes an audio guide.
  • If you switch from Catania to be like Giovanni Verga can't beat a visit to the House where the writer Caroline was born and where he lived for many years. The House, now converted into a museum very well looked after, retains the original furnishings. Beautiful the library! The entrance ticket is only €4 and included an audioguide that recounts the highlights of the author's life and his lifestyle.

  • Visit enjoyable and interesting, accompanied by a detailed audio guide but not overly verbose. Beautiful library and the story of the last hours of the writer.

  • Unfortunately a disappointment, first they asked me if I belonged to one of the following categories: student, teacher, invalid. When I submitted my certification as a teacher in secondary school I hear you say that as a teacher currently not in service (I think it's difficult to find teachers in service at the end of July) and no pupils in tow (evident from the the time we were there for just my husband and I) I had no right to discounts. OK, no problem, the ticket is pretty cheap. I pull out my 20 euros. Answer: "I'm sorry but I do not have to change them." We pull out all the change in our pockets, but we get only 7 euros and 40 (we should arrive at 8). The lazy employee looks at us without the slightest interest. We left disappointed and angry than ever. Rudeness and total disinterest.
