The heart of the city, Catania is what you think of when you think Sicily... chaos, scruffiy yet a romantic magnetic pull. The city is packed with energy and earthy spirit in sharp contract to Palermo's aristocratic history. It's a magical wonderful head spinning city. A mix of stately black and white palaces, baroque piazzas right out of a movie. Founded on ancient ruins dating back 2700 years, it is always a pleasant surprise no matter what corner you turn.
A food haven as well, home of the "Pasa alla Norma', you can't get a bad meal in Catania.
Mt. Etna looms in the background offering another layer of mystique
