The Europe region

Italy

The Catania / Mount Etna area

Catania is dramatically situated between the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna, Europe's greatest active volcano. As well as ruins from the ancient city, the town boasts a wealth of fine Baroque architecture. It's a city with a strong personality, dominated by the looming bulk of Etna, which every so often rains ash upon the streets. The city has a lot to offer tourists, though, and has recently been making an increased destination to promote itself as a tourist destination, and not just a base for seeing the legendary volcano. Etna Founded by Greek colonists, Katane was subsequently conquered by Syracuse and then, during the Punic Wars, by the Romans. One of the best Roman structures that can still be seen is the Roman Theatre in Via Vittorio Emanuele, surrounded by later buildings. Next door is the round Odeon, a smaller auditorium. Close by in Via Rotonda, the church of Santa Maria della Rotonda is founded on the remains of Roman baths. The lava-and-marble Roman Amphitheatre, part of which can be seen in Piazza Stesicoro, dates to the second century AD. Among Catania's more recent sights are the many Baroque churches and palazzi, including the heavily-peopled facade of Palazzo Biscari. The Museo Civico in the stumpy grey fortress of Castello Ursino (1239-1250) houses a range of exhibits from all eras of Catania's history. Piazza del Duomo is Catania's principal square, at the end of busy Via Etnea (named for the volcano), and most of the town's tourist attractions are close by. In the centre is a much-photographed eighteenth-century lava statue of an elephant, supporting an Egyptian obelisk. The Duomo itself is one of Catania's grandest sights. The facade dates from the Baroque rebuilding of the town, although some of the earlier church did survive the earthquake. Remaining sights to see in Catania include the black-and-white Porta Garibaldi and the striking uncompleted facade of the Chiesa di San Nicolo in Piazza Dante. The town's theatre, Teatro Massimo Bellini, has a grand frontage and a lavish interior. Its name honours local hero Vincenzo Bellini (1801-1835), the composer whose opera Norma gives its name to one of the culinary specialities of the region. The Museo Civico Belliniano (Piazza San Francesco 3) is free and contains mementoes from all stages of the composer's short life. Also named after him is an ornamental public park, Villa Bellini. Mount Etna Etna is the highest European volcano, its vast bulk bolstered by millennia of eruptions. Catania makes a good starting-point for volcanic excursions. The small towns around the National Park are interesting and worth touring if you're spending some time in the area. Visiting the volcano itself is dependent on current conditions. There are various organised tours of the volcano - check at Catania's tourist office (Via Cimarosa 10) to find out about these. They will also be able to give you advice on conditions around the craters. The Circumetnea is a small railway line which circles the base of the volcano, leaving from Catania and terminating in Riposto (where you can catch a mainline train back to town). There are several high-altitude spots which can be reached by car or public transport, the highest being Piazzale del Rifugio Sapienza. Catania is on the main Messina - Siracusa railway line, and is thus connected by direct trains to mainland Italy. Buses as well as trains serve local destinations, and urban buses cover the built-up area. Catania also has an international airport.

The Sicily region

Sicily is a good destination for a touring holiday - allow at least a week, and preferably longer, for travelling around and getting a flavour of the main tourist destinations. One of Sicily's leading holiday destinations is Taormina, a fashionable resort with beaches nearby, a fine Greek theatre and a stylish film festival (in June). One of the classical world's most important legacies can be seen at Agrigento's Valley of the Temples. The hilltop town of Enna is inland, set at the heart of Sicily, and offers a different perspective on the island. Palermo, the regional capital, is one of Italy's largest cities; chaotic but with many sights of interest. Over to the south-east, the Baroque city of Catania, birthplace of the composer Bellini (remembered in the Museo Civico Belliniano), is worth a visit, and makes a good base for the lion-hearted who wish to visit Etna. Siracusa, perhaps better known as Syracuse, was an important Greek town, home to Archimedes. Its Greek theatre still stands, and classic dramas are performed here each year.

the appartment is perfectly located to enjoy all those trips.
