The mountain is a spectacular backdrop to Catania, the second largest city on the island. Founded in the 8th century BC, Catania is a place you must visit.

    Similarly to Palermo, it boasts various architectural styles and tourist attractions, such as the Cathedral Square or Piazza Stesicoro with the ruins of the Roman Amphitheatre.
