Nestled at the eastern foot of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest volcano is the ancient city of Catania, a rich commercial centre with a busy harbour near many attractive and luxurious Catania hotels. Ancient stone decorates many of the city’s buildings along with gold adornments on columns pilasters and frescoes. The compact city centre features a daily fish market on the Piazza Del Duomo and a food and clothes market near the Via Etnea. Sample panninis or tavola calda made with meat and cheese. Also try the Sicilian specialty of arancino -- deep fried rice balls with various fillings.
The Piazza Del Duomo is the heart of the city and where you will find the Fontana dell’Elefante, the symbol of Catania. The black lava elephant has graced the square since the 1500s. Take a stroll to the Piazza Stesicoro, the original city centre that contains the ruins of a roman amphitheatre. Hotels in Catania are never more than a few steps away from one of the city’s many churches that host many different religious festivals throughout the year.
Outside the city, Mount Etna dominates the countryside. Treks to Mount Etna, from your Catania accommodation to the volcano’s slopes, are a must. HotelClub's membership benefits offers various discounts. International travellers usually arrive through Catania-Fontanarossa Airport. Buses run every half hour to the city’s centre. The Catania Train Station is a hub for rail travel. For a more scenic route, take a ferry ride from Naples, Genoa or Civitavechia, Italy or from Valletta, Malta.
