In Catania you will find a Sicily rich in smells, flavors and also rich in Baroque architecture. Precisely because of its Baroque heritage, this city, together with the Val di Noto, has been included in the Sicilian sites protected by UNESCO. Catania is the city of street food, pasta alla norma, spring onions, and cartocciate. A city full of life, but in a slow and relaxed way, where you can spend time between a visit to a monument, a swim in the sea, an aperitif.
The center of Catania is waiting to be discovered, possibly on foot, starting from the Ursino Castle of Frederick II, with its museums of art and military strategy. Continuing with the Piazza del Duomo and the Collegiata, the Cathedral that preserves the relics of Sant'Agata, to which the people of Catania are deeply devoted. For all lovers of greenery and relaxation, there are the Bellini Gardens, the Botanical Garden and the Victory Gardens
Many tourists come to Catania not only to visit the city, but also for day trips that depart from here. To the south are Syracuse, Ortigia and Noto. The Etna volcano region is certainly full of things to see and myTour offers you the 'Etna Nature and Flavors' tour that takes you up to 2,000 meters and then to 3,000 meters, to the top of the volcano, and then takes you to Zafferana Etnea to taste the typical products of the territory. We have developed many routes around the volcano: there is 'Etna & Wine' for wine lovers, 'Etna & Alcantara' for river and canyoning lovers. Finally, highly recommended, the tours that from Catania take you to discover the coast, to Taormina, Giardini Naxos, and Castelmola.
In Piazza Duomo in Catania there is an elephant carved in black volcanic stone surmounted by a Roman obelisk. According to legend, the elephant has magical powers! But to find out in detail, you will have to ask our guides.
