Catania was born 28 centuries ago. It is no wonder there is so much history to see here.
You will stand before Ursino Castle and feel the might of those tall stone walls. They have outlived seven centuries — and look as though another seven won’t bother them.
Older still, much older, are the Roman amphitheatre, the Greek-Roman theatre, and the ruins of the Roman forum. Younger and charming are the dozens of Baroque churches dotted everywhere about the city.
Whatever historical period you love best, you are sure to find it in Catania.
