Catania

Cities and Towns in Sicily

Catania is Sicily's second largest city and was founded in the 8th B.C. by Greek colonists. It was hard hit by earthquake in 1169, by volcanic eruptions in 1329, 1381 and 1669 and modern Catania stands as a testament to the trial the city has been through in terms of both natural and economic disaster, the later predominately the result of government neglect..
 
Catania is in need of considerable renovation, and though it offers visitors glimpses at superb architecture, enthralling fish markets and stunning views of Mt. Etna, most travelers agree that Catania has little more to offer than oranges and lemons.
 
Traffic flows in ever-increasing volume and adds to the smog from the industrial zone between Catania and Siracusa, many buildings are run down and the streets are wide and un-charming.  There is no beach front appropriate for swimming, as the entire area hosts numerous streamliners and industrial equipment.
I
We understand that travelers, despite the city's defects, that many travelers will use Catania as a point of convergence for travel in Italy.  For this reason, we are working hard to bring you more information about staying in Catania

Client Testimonials

Jesse,
There are no words to describe the fabulous time we had in Italy. Everything went as you promised. Absolutely no problems! The venues were fabulous. The guides were punctual and helpful. It couldn't have worked out better. You and your staff deserve high praise for the quality and efficiency of your work. BTW, Guiseppe was an absolute delight. We enjoyed his informative and effervescent personality he was a hit with our group. The serenading was an added bonus! Our stay in Calabria went well too. Thank you for all your work and coordination for making this dream come true for us! If any of us travel there again, you will surely be hearing from us. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as well. Ciao for now,
