Get to know Catania with Viator
Catania defies the volcanic might of Mt. Etna with boundless carpe-diem pluck. The city vibrates with a youthful energy that can be rough-edged, but its UNESCO-listed Piazza del Duomo tempers the grit with baroque splendor. Timeworn palaces crowd around its lavish opera house and scruffy fish market with equal grace. Its squares are thick with traditional and trendy trattorie serving up the city’s specialty, pasta alla Norma (pasta with eggplant).
