Ceramic over ceramic?

I am planning to remodel one of the bathrooms in my 20 year old home. The room in question is about 40 sq. ft. and already has 1" x 1" (poor quality) ceramic tile on the floor.

There is an excellent base under this floor and there is no movement, squeaks, etc.

Can I lay 12" x 12" tile over the existing tile?

Is there any special pre-treatment necessary?

as long as the tile is stuck real good clean real well as suggested maybe muriatic acid and water should do it let dry and chaffe the tile with something grinder or similar tolland use a product called mapei keralastic that you can get at the box stores it is a full flex mortar that you mix with liquid latex work great
