To see via Etnea, piazza Duomo, the Teatro Massimo dedicated to the main citizen Vincenzo Bellini, the Ursino's Castle by Federico II, the superb via Crociferi. And in February, don't miss the Feast of St. Agatha

ACI CASTELLO AND ACITREZZA

 

A few kilometers from Catania, don't miss Aci Castello, famous for its fortress overlooking the sea. And then Aci Trezza, the seaside village of the Malavoglia, with its stacks - thrown by Polyphemus against Ulysses - and the many fish restaurants on the coast.

Snow and fire, colorful and black lava nature: with its 3343 meters, Etna is the highest active volcano in Europe. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2013, it is a magical place that has attracted artists and scientists from every era: from Archimedes to Empedocles, from Virgil to Goethe, from Guttuso to Coldplay.
