Catania (province) Vacation Packages

Travel through historic villages on the Ionian Coast and try gastronomic delicacies in the shadow of Europe’s tallest active volcano.

Catania is an active and dynamic Sicilian province with a lively main town and intriguing architecture. The town of Catania has a UNESCO-listed historic center with ornate squares enclosed by medieval treasures and enormous Mount Etna looming in the background. Explore ancient ruins in the town and visit picturesque beaches.

One of Catania’s highlights is its cuisine, with pasta alla Norma (eggplant, cheese, tomatoes and basil) the most common dish. Glimpse local culture and culinary traditions with a trip to the busy La Pescheria fish market where you can purchase Sicilian seafood. 

Experience more local culture with an afternoon in the Catania Old Town, where signs are in both Italian and Sicilian languages. Have coffee in one of the many town squares, including Cathedral Square (Piazza Duomo), Piazza Dante and Piazza Universita.

Learn about the Roman influence here through the preserved relics of the Roman Columns and the Roman Amphitheater, where gladiator fights and social debates took place. The town has long been famous for its elephant symbolism, notable in the city center’s marble Elephant Fountain and the Elephants Palace. The emblem’s origins are unknown, but elephants remain a good-luck charm.

For a change of scenery, sunbathe on the beaches of La Plaja. Embark on a gondola trip up Mount Etna for extraordinary views of the region. Visit some of the quaint fishing villages along the Ionian Coast, such as Aci Trezza, which has a wonderful Seafront. Another attraction is the village of Fiumefreddo di Sicilia, known for the river flowing into the harbor near Marina di Cottone Beach.

Arrive via the large Catania International Airport in the southern part of the namesake town. Ride the frequent trains up and down the coast or take buses to get around. You can also take a ferry to the Italian mainland cities, including Naples.

Explore the vast Sicilian province of Catania for rich culture, excellent food and historic towns.
