Destination guide

Indulge in high-end boutique shopping from a Catania villa

If you're interested in shopping on your holiday adventure, Catania is one of the best destinations. It's effectively the commercial centre of Sicily with numerous shops and restaurants available. The historical attractions are also plentiful here with some monuments dating as far back as the Romans. If you're more interested in natural beauty, the Villa Bellini features an iconic garden with intricately organized flora and a fountain. Villas in Sicily are quite varied, so you can find affordable and luxury options.

Things to do

Catania – the gateway to the clouds

Catania is the closest major city to the hulking outline of Mount Etna. You might want to keep your distance from the fire-spewing calderas of that active volcano – that's understandable, and there are plenty of Catania holiday rentals with pools and panoramic views overlooking its slopes to oblige. Feeling brave? Hop on a tour to the summit, which takes you deep into the national reserve that encompasses it, to see lava channels and ash cones and more. A stop at the Museo Vulcanologico dell'Etna can be made along the way, to learn all about its destructive and metamorphic past.


Taste buds tingling in Catania

Foodies won't know where to stop as they wander the crisscrossing streets of Catania's centre. Cafes of oh-so-good coffee clink and chatter on every corner. In the shadow of the massive Baroque cathedral the fish stalls bustle on the flagstones of Piazza del Duomo. Sicilian tomatoes and cheeses are stacked on the stalls of the farmers market along Via Etnea. Street food tours are also a must for those who want to taste their way around this metropolis. They usually start in La Pescheria – the most famous market in town. Get ready for bites of grilled kebabs and sizzling prawns, fresh pastas and crunchy cannoli.


Catching a sweet spot in Catania

Sicily's scorching summers start as early as May and end in September. Temperatures as high as 40 degrees and long days of sunshine come with them, making Catania holiday rentals with pools or proximity to the east coast beaches a wise choice. Springtime, in April, and autumn, in October, mean catching a sweet spot when the mercury isn't soaring but it's still warm. Those are great seasons for hiking Etna and wandering the city's Baroque streets. Winter can be wet and cold, with snow blanketing the top of the great volcano.

Natural features

Catania – in the shadow of Etna

Catania is considered the prime gateway to the slopes of Mount Etna. The Etna Park starts just a little to the north of the city, ringing the colossal peak – the highest active volcano in all of Europe. This nature reserve protects the curious geological features and wildlife of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Hikers and mountain bikers will love the adventure, weaving past citrus orchards up to ridges of scree and black stone. Keep an eye out for the ancient lava channels that have been carved into the ridges by previous eruptions and the foxes, sheep, buzzards and falcons that live in the lush landscape of the lower slopes.
