Things to see in Catania during your stay: countless. The volcanic city that shines in eastern Sicily is full of surprises for your senses.

  1. Among the things to see in Catania is the Ursino Castle, a place of power and culture, built by Frederick II of Swabia in the 13th century. The castle is located in the historic center of the city, and from there it will not be difficult to reach the other things to see in Catania.
  2. In fact, not far away is the well of Gammazita, named after a legend from the period of the War of the Vespers, during the Angevin occupation.
  3. Walking through that area, there are still many things to see in Catania: the fish market, Villa Pacini, Biscari Palace, places near the Marina arches.
  4. Going up, there is the Benedictine Monastery and the unfinished church of St. Nicholas, for only 3€ you will be able to climb to the top of the dome and enjoy a breathtaking view;
  5. and don't forget that the things to see in Catania are also simply via Plebiscito and via Etnea: you only need to walk on these streets to feel in the heart of the city.
  6. Villa Bellini, Via Umberto, Piazza Carlo Alberto--the latter, among the things to see in Catania, is not to be missed.
  7. In fact, the square is every day the protagonist of the Fair, the city's big market, and not only that, one of the city's most interesting churches, full of ex-votos inside, stands out on the square.
  8. Very close by and still on the Fair Square is the small St. Gaetano alle Grotte.
  9. For a rich and complete tour, the things to see in Catania also extend into the hinterland: there is the whole of the cliffs and towns of Etna to explore. Particularly worth seeing are the Faraglioni of Acitrezza, and in summer a pedal boat ride is a must.You won't be able to get bored and you won't be able to taste all the typical dishes. The things to see in Catania are edible as well! From Savia's pizzetta to horse meat on the street, from the paninaro's sandwich to fresh, glistening fish, from Norma to cassata, from ricotta crespelle to gelatin with lemon, and then cannoli, torta Savoia, Sant'Agata olives...arancino, seltz, almond milk...the list is very long and I haven't told you all the things to see in Catania yet because many you will discover in person, living the city.
  10. Make your stay unique by adding to your list of things to see in Catania the volcano, the beautiful Etna that reaches from the sky to the sea.
