Catania, Italy (In the region of Sicily)
An ancient, medieval and then finally Baroque city, often attacked by the violence of nature and just as often rebuilt with determination and obstinacy. Catania, the cradle of theatre and music, is a city to experience day and night, when the sun shines on its Baroque palaces, whose black lava stone and white limestone dominate the vision, and when the evening comes, the clubs open, the squares fill up with people up to the next morning.
A visit to the Etna vulcan is an unforgettable experience. From Catania Borgo station leaves Ferrovia Circumetnea (no service on Sundays and holidays) offering a magnificent journey around Etna (about a 3-hour trip).
