Overview Of The Port Of Catania

About Catania
Catania is an Italian city on the east coast of Sicily facing the Ionian Sea, at the foot of Mount Etna.

Mount Etna is a favourite tourist attraction both in the summer and winter months.

Other places of interest include Monastero dei Benedettini, the Museo dello Sbarco and the Piazza Duomo, which is the heart of Catania. The cathedral dedicated to Santa Agata dominates the space and in the centre is the Fontana dell'Elefante (Elephant Fountain).

The main shopping street is called Via Etnea. Ceramics are a popular buy.

Taormina, a small town located between Catania and Messina, is a popular excursion for visitors and offers more shopping opportunities.

For beach action, head to Marina di Cottone Beach (aka Fiumefreddo Beach), located right on the edge of the Mount Etna Regional Park.

Local dishes include 'pesce spada' (swordfish), 'pasta alla Norma' (pasta dressed with tomato sauce, topped with fried eggplant slices, grated ricotta salata and fresh basil), 'arancino' (cone-shaped rice croquette filled with meat, tomato sauce, cheese and peas) and Marsala wine.
