Catania Attractions

Catania is one of Sicily's liveliest cities, looking out over the sparkling Ionian Sea, hugging the base of Mount Etna's slopes. History and culture is alive in much of the city's architecture, forming a significant part of its past, much of which is tied to the unleashed wrath of Mount Etna, which in the 17th century all but destroyed the city. Consequently, the city was rebuilt and transformed into one of the Baroque capitals of Europe. More recently the centre was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting a plethora of Baroque churches, palaces and museums brimming with art. It is also a university town with a vibrant bar scene and energetic street life.

Things to do in Catania

The second-largest city in Sicily after Palermo, there is much for visitors to see and do. Whether you wish to spend your time uncovering historical treasures, browsing the shops, being at one with nature's powerful forces or refuelling on local delicacies, a visit to Catania has all bases covered for an unforgettable break.
