Four Favourite Catania Museums:

Everything worked perfectly!

Hi, Just to let you know everything worked perfectly. The online booking was great. Our vehicle matched our request & payment was good. Queue at Catania airport was long and some info about what was expected when we arrived at the counter would have been helpful to reduce the form filling in time. Drop off was efficient and effective. Cheers.
