Catania Guide

Catania resides in the shadow of Mount Etna, the volcano that often has, sent forth great flows of lava, even on occasion into the town itself.

One of the sights to visit is Villa Bellini a large park with a enormous variety of exotic plants. On the top of a hill, where is a little kiosk, one can enjoy a beautiful view of the city and out towards the Etna volcano.


The botanical garden The Orto Botanico built in the 1950s, shows species from across the world. Some remarkable specimens of Dracena Drago and Euforbia Brachiata are also included.
In very heart of the city, PIAZZA DEL DUOMO designed by Vaccarini, surrounded by magnificent Baroque buildings which giving it a great elegance. On the centre rises the Fontana dell’Elefante (Fountain of the Elephant) which is the symbol of the town.
