Catania and surroundings
Located at the foot of the picturesque Mount Etna which with its eruptions often gives it a special charm, Catania, overlooking the Ionian Sea, is a splendid city of art, an undisputed example of Sicilian baroque and for this Unesco heritage together with the other cities of the Val by Noto.Catania is a city that leaves you fascinated. Beginning with the remarkable testimonies dating back to the Roman period, among which the Odeon stands out, which stands in the historic center, next to the Roman theater. This last building was built in the Greek era, but restored between the I and II century, and other monumental structures also belong to this period, including the amphitheater and some thermal buildings made with lava stones. Do not miss the visit to the Ursino castle, founded by Frederick II of Swabia in the 13th century and today a civic museum. Catania, an illustrious example of Sicilian baroque and post-earthquake reconstruction, preserves the urban layout designed by the architect Vaccarini, with ample straight streets that join together around the main Via Etnea, open to squares and gardens. Among these scenic streets is Piazza del Duomo, which features the characteristic elephant fountain, the true center of the historic city. Visiting Catania is a continuous surprise: you can walk among the great eighteenth-century avenues and relax in one of the bars along the beautiful Via Etnea, the beating heart of Catania's social life and an ideal place for shopping. For those who love the sea, the Catania coast, characterized by the alternation of sandy beaches and rocky coasts of lava nature, leaves an embarrassment of choice. A route full of suggestions is then dedicated to the nearby park of Etna, between pine forests, black lava surfaces and smoking craters. Catania is therefore a city of a thousand faces and the cultural life of the city that revolves around the university is also remarkable, one of the oldest in Italy (1434).
