Welcome

The wonderful strength of Etna, the snow-covered peaks, the crystal clear sea of the Ionian coast, the historical and archaeological heritage, the baroque churches and palaces, the enogastronomic traditions and music, the innate warmth and hospitality culture of the people, welcome tourists in every season.
Fire, water, and light meet, mingle and intertwine to give the visitor a unique spectacle. The province of Catania offers a scenario that has attracted tourists and travelers for centuries.
A strip of land where nature mixes colours in an embrace that wraps up little bays and paths that are imbued with the fragrance of muscat wine, in a continuous succession of cliffs and creeks that become fields and then valleys, almond trees covered with white flowers, red woods of beech and silver birch

The Catanese Coast: From the Simeto to the Alcantara

A coast of 70 km, whose variety is startling. We are not seeing it. Follow us: From the Serra del Re in the Nebrodi, once it gets the water from the Saracen torrent, the Simeto flows for hundred kilometres and then flows into the Ionian waters, twelve kilometres away from Catania.
From the river mouth to Catania’s port it expands a sandy strip of almost 9 kilometres.

Etna

Etna
The wonders of Etna

Etna, a land of myths and legends. The ancients looked to the mountain with awe and respect. Had made the home of Vulcan, god of fire and the Cyclops.
Its meaning is therefore lost in the mists of time and ancient languages. The Arabs were so impressed by it as "the mountain of mountains" ( "Mount Etna"), the mountain for excellence.
