Catania, Sicily

Catania is the second largest city in Sicily and is situated as the crow flies, less than 30 km away from the summit of Mt. Etna. The city was rebuilt at the end of the 17th century in the baroque style after an earthquake destroyed a large part of the historic city. Catania is the main touristic centre of the island and has a wonderful archaeological park with many ancient Greek and Roman edifices. The city is the birthplace of the famous composer Vincenzo Bellini, and is renown for its superb Catania cuisine with its wonderful  strong Sicillian traits.
