The volcanic city
Catania, ancient port city located on the east coast of Sicily built at the foot of Mount Etna, was shaped by the rage of the volcano thus drawing the contours of its landscape.
Bordered by the clear waters of the Mediterranean sea and plunging its land into a green cradle, Catania is the fruit of an idyllic association.
In Catania, the Etna volcano is symbolic. High and imposing, its summit dominates the immensity of the landscape and leaves room for a vast panorama which extends as far as the eye can see.
Citrus orchards with vast vineyards open an oasis of color interrupted in its living colors by the grey tone of lava, dark but fertile. This beautiful color palette form a union between the cobalt blue of the sky and the turquoise blue of a crystalline sea.
Catania, dazzling with its blazing sun, majestic squares, ubiquitous lava stone architecture, with lines reflecting the different cultures that have crossed its path over the years welcomes you with open arms.
