Etna & Surroundings

Catania, the Phoenix

the city that rises from its ashes

Catania has always been reborn after being hit by Etna’s lava flows and by disastrous earthquakes.

It is one of the most representative cities of the Sicilian Baroque, but its ancient origins are still clearly identifiable through archaeological remains.

Catania offers unique artistic treasures, museums with important exhibitions and international folkloristic events, such as the Feast of Saint Agatha, patron of this city. Catania is also perfect for night owls and for those who love the good Sicilian cuisine.

It has been recognized twice as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can’t miss Catania during your stay in Sicily!
