No trip to Italy is complete without a visit to Sicily, the biggest and best of the islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Choose Catania accommodation for a look at Italy's history, a taste of its excellent cuisine and a sunny escape from everyday life. This city on the west coast of the island lies in the shadow of Mount Etna, but it’s ready for its moment in the sun.
Things to Do in Catania
Holidays to Catania are delightful at any time of year thanks to the mild climate, but beach-goers will prefer spring and fall. If you sense that something's fishy here, relax—it's only the market, where fresh seafood comes in daily off small fishing boats. Pay it a visit to catch the full Sicilian energy of this city in action. For a quieter afternoon, sit for a spell in the baroque Piazza Duomo or take a walk down winding old streets to get lost in the local culture. Looking for a more explosive adventure? Hike Mount Etna, or at least take a vineyard tour to taste wines that are famous because of the volcanic terroir here. Hotels in Catania make any of this possible—the only hard part is choosing which adventures you'll take.
