Catania: Holiday homes


Catania, Sicily's second largest city, is situated amidst an impressive natural landscape. On the one side the majestic Etna towers over the history-laden town, on the other side there is the natural reservation "Oasi del Simeto".

Holiday homes at the sea in privileged location between Mount Etna and the Oasi del Simeto

Catania, second largest town on Sicily, lies amidst an impressive natural landscape. On the one side, majestic Mount Etna dominates the history-charged town; on the other side lies the nature reserve "Oasi del Simeto".

Baroque splendour and a wide range of cultural offerings

Catania itself is vibrant with life. Strolling through the Centro Storico with its artful baroque buildings, you should not miss visiting the grand Piazza Duomo with its Fontana dell'Elefante, the prestigious avenue Via Etnea with its elegant shops and neat café-bars, the beatiful parks and the impressive Castello Ursino.

The university town offers a wide range of cultural possibilities. Attending a performance at the beautiful Teatro Bellini or one of the events taking place in the course of the festival Etnafest from January to mid July, are only two possible highlights.

An experience for your senses – the extremely colourful markets

Less appealing to the intellect, but nonetheless appealing to the senses, that is what you will experience at the two extremely colourful markets of Catania, which have become sights to see. La Pescheria, the large fish market, takes place daily near Piazza Duomo. You will enjoy it most in the early morning. At Fera o Luni (Piazza Stesicoro/Corso Sicilia), locals find everything their hearts desire, ranging from vegetables and traditional "caffettiera" to leather goods.

Pure nature at Oasi del Simeto

At nature reserve "Oasi del Simeto", located south of Catania, there is an extensive network of paths. You will encounter a rich avifauna, including herons, herring gulls, bee-eaters and purple swamp hens. This is a paradise not only for hikers, but also for riders on horseback and divers.
