Catania sits nestled at the foot of Mount Etna, Sicily’s famous active volcanic peak, on the eastern coast of Italy’s largest Mediterranean island. This little Sicilian town will warm your heart with its lovely sights and delicious food and wine, especially its seafood. Catania is Sicily’s second-largest city and its historic central plaza is a UNESCO World Heritage site. But despite its ancient origins, Catania’s spirit is decidedly young. Feel its creative exuberance at its many artisan studios and in its nightlife. A visit to the popular fish market at La Pescheria is never complete without paying homage to the seafood restaurants with their sumptuous offerings. Settle down with a bottle of red wine from the local vineyards, a delicious sardine pasta (pasta con le sarde) and fragrant fennel and orange salad. Enjoy an alfresco treat for a taste of the Sicilian dolce vita!
