Catania is the second largest city in Sicily, framed by the Etna volcano to the west, and the Mediterranean to the east. It is a vibrant city with bars, cafés, honking cars and narrow alleys. Visitors can retreat to the cooler climate of the surrounding small mountain villages, or to the sea for a balmy swim.
