Catania — 5 nights

The landscape surrounding Catania, a medieval city on Sicily's eastern coast, is dominated by Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Catania: Syracuse (Palazzo Benevantano del Bosco, Duomo di Siracusa, &more), Castello di Lombardia (in Enna) and Taormina (Chiesa del Varo, Villa Comunale, &more). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Piazza Duomo, delve into the distant past at Villa Romana del Casale, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Sant’Ignazio di Loyola, and make a trip to Centro Storico.

Sicily travel guide

The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily is a ruggedly attractive land. The island has a long history of foreign domination and has been controlled by the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Normans. The result is a distinct culture blending elements from all of those areas and featuring an intriguing dialect. This is a huge island with plenty of small villages to tour, each with its own treasures. Beyond the popular coastal areas, Sicily's inland attractions include an unspoiled landscape of mountains, hills, and villages that sometimes seem frozen in time. While the natural environment is its biggest draw, Sicily's greatest asset may be its people. They are proud of their traditions and incredibly hospitable to visitors.
