The charming seaside city of Catania
The charming seaside Catania is a young, dynamic city inhabiting a body of narrow alleys and ornate Baroque buildings mounted on top of well-preserved remains of ancient Greek and Roman settlements.
Mount Etna defines the cityscape both in terms of the striking panorama and building material - Catania is even referred to as the "grey city" for the color of lava rocks used to construct many of its buildings.
