Catania Holidays Overview

 

Catania is situated on the Ionian Coast of Sicily, and it is regarded as the second commercial city of the island. It has a prosperous and developing entrepreneurial centre, with a well known university, and a strong population full of character whose motto is ‘carpe diem’, or ‘seize the day’.
 
The appearance and history of Catania is largely shaped by the nearby volcano Mount Etna. There was a catastrophic eruption in the seventeenth century in which twelve thousand of the city’s inhabitants were killed. Many of the city’s buildings are built using the lava that gushed out of the mountain during that eruption.
 
Giovanni Vaccarini was responsible for rebuilding much of Catania’s centre, and his elegant baroque style is easily to recognise in the spacious boulevards and piazzas. The buildings give a generally black appearance, as if constantly covered by a layer of soot. The historic town centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Ever since the Massimo Bellini Theatre opened at the end of the nineteenth century, it has been at the centre of cultural life in Catania. Each year it puts on a varied summer program featuring an operatic and ballet program, and a symphonic and chamber music season, collectively known as the Bellini Festival. The theatre, which can seat around two hundred, has perfect acoustics, and a performance there is not to be missed.
