To Catania Gorgeous in Grey

Established in the shadow of Mt. Etna in the 8th century BC, Catania’s history is closely tied to the volcano, having been destroyed by earthquakes and eruptions on several occasions, most significantly in 1693 when it was wiped out and then rebuilt in the Baroque style. Today, this well-preserved historic core is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, perhaps best characterized in the Piazza Duomo, Catania’s main square, which is surrounded by beautiful Baroque buildings all designed by Giovanni Battista Vaccarini. The striking dark grey cathedral is a particular stand-out because it incorporates elements ancient Roman structures. Of the city’s many monuments, the Palazzo Biscari is the most lavish, with a sculpture-covered facade and opulent Rococo interiors (which require advance booking to visit). Visitors can also see the city’s ancient origins in the Roman Theatre, smaller Odeon, or huge amphitheatre. And of course, be sure to try the city’s signature pasta alla Norma!
