At the feet of the Etna vulcano
A three day weekend was perfect to visit the beautiful streets of the Sicilian chief town. The main attractions are all reachable by foot, which allows you to enjoy the nice weather and the decadent atmoshere of the city.
Catania is lively, rich of history and has amazing food. After all, it seems like a crime not to eat well, here. The streets and the Baroque squares of the historical center have declared a World Heritage Site and, from now and then, you can continuously feel the presence of the magestic vulcano on the background, as if it was a obiquitous frame to this part of Sicily.
Three days were also enough to do a day trip to Taormina, a wonderful little city perched on the rocky seaside where you have a breathtaking view of the sea.
The narrow and tortuous streets are full of ancient temples, shops and tipical restaurants. But the main attraction is the Greek Theater, the second biggest after the one in Siracusa.
