Catania, one of Sicily’s most baroque cities

Nestled between Mount Etna and the Ionian sea, Catania is a former Greek colony founded in the 8th century BC. The blend of civilisations and the whims of the most famous volcanos have created a unique city, boasting an unparalleled cultural heritage that is very popular with travellers.  Listed as a world heritage site for humanity since 2002, the native city of Bellini is an undisputed city of art. It has many baroque churches and palaces, a very picturesque fish market, the renowned Massimo theatre, a Roman amphitheatre and the city’s emblem, Castello Ursino. Catania, like Sicily, is an invitation to admire the beauty and soak up the gentle pleasures of life in the land of dolce vita.
