Catania is located on the east coast of the Island of Sicily, at the foot of Mount Etna and is the second largest city in Sicily. Catania is an energetic city with a beautiful, Unesco-listed historic centre. Beautiful palazzi tower over piazzas and the Duomao di Catania is a fine example of the Baroque style. The city has one of the most vibrant fish markets on the island plus lots of bars, clubs and eateries. Visit the Piazza Duomo or the Monastero dei Benedettini which was once the largest Benedictine monastery in Italy and now part of the university in Catania.
Discover the city and surrounding area with one of the many bus tours bookable locally or for the more adventurous visit Mount Etna. Mount Etna broods on the horizon and is both a powerful and a beautiful backdrop to the city.
