The home of Mount Etna
Catania is shaped by Sicily’s stunning natural features that include spectacular sandy beaches, rocky coastlines and Mount Etna, which also happens to be Europe’s most active volcano. The historic port city is a sight in itself. Partially destroyed by earthquakes and rebuilt in the baroque style, impressive palazzi, the amphitheatre, the Catania fish market and many street food stalls dominate the cityscape today.
The island of Sicily offers countless exciting places, such as Palermo and Marsala, and delightful beaches to explore. Sicily’s climate is ideally suited for beach holidays in the summer and more adventurous travel during the mild winter months.
