The second largest city in Sicily, it's packed full of culture, charm and character which is sure to please lovers of history and the arts. Bordered by beautiful shores and sea, you'll also want to spend time perfecting your inner and outer glow under the sun at one of the nearby beaches.

A destination perfect for travellers who love adventure, whether you spend your days playing water sports and catching rays or exploring the top sights, Catania holidays will never leave you short of things to do.

Catania's Corners

Potential living quarters during holidays to Catania range from traditional hotels to more modern B&Bs with a few self-catered options in between, so make your choice based on your needs.

For all things culture, the accommodation in the modern city centre offer easy access to some of the island's most popular attractions, restaurants, bars and shops, and are perfect for both families and students.

Full-on history buffs should opt for a resting place in the nearby Historical Centre area to be close to landmarks including its famous Duomo and several museums.

Lovers looking to leave all the hustle and bustle behind should stay near the harbour set next to the romantic seaside.

Cool, Calm and Collected

A lovely representation of all things that are most loved about Sicily, Catania is spacious but approachable making it a wonderful year-round holiday destination. For the maximum chance of getting completely sun-kissed, summer holidays to Catania will give you 30C temperatures and longer days.

Back down by the sea, lovers of the great outdoors can take surfing lessons or learn to kayak, making it a wonderful place to start a new hobby under the sun.

Of course, Catania holidays simply wouldn’t be complete until you have fully experienced dining here. From restaurants which serve authentic, hearty Italian cuisine to menus featuring international dishes with a local twist, your taste buds are sure to delight in the goodness of every bite.
