Catania

4.1

Black Pearl of Ionian Sea

The landscape surrounding Catania, a medieval city on Sicily's eastern coast, is dominated by Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe. With a history reaching back almost three millennia, Catania is a major transportation hub, economic center, and a university city with a busy downtown and an active nightlife. Explore the Baroque architecture in its central area, which is a World Heritage Site. The devastating earthquake of 1693 destroyed most of Catania, and the town had to be rebuilt from scratch. One side of Catania looks out to the sea; the other features fertile country with a patchwork of citrus groves and vineyards. Catania is in Province of Catania. Make your own Catania vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Italy trip maker website.
