The whole history of Catania was formed in the shadow of the formidable and majestic Mount Etna. The mountain, like an omnipotent deity, towers over the city and does not let you forget how perishable everything created by man is. Several times the city turned into ruins due to earthquakes, but again rose from the ashes like an immortal phoenix.
Catania is an ideal place not only for lovers of the picturesque Italian province, but also for connoisseurs of the magnificent Baroque. Almost all city buildings are erected in this manner, which is why streets and squares give the impression of integrity and unity of style.
But not only the churches and Palazzo Catania attract tourists here: gourmets rush to the main fish market, where delicious seafood is sold, and fans of ancient culture – to museums with Roman and Greek artifacts.
