About Catania

Catania is the second port on Sicily. The affects of which have been felt by Catania several times over the years. The distinct dark grey volcanic rocks used in the construction of many buildings represent this fact.

Catania was rebuilt gradually over the years after it was completely destroyed due to a violent earth quake in 1169. Catania was initially part of the Roman empire but was later taken over by the Greeks. However, most of Catania's grand palaces and wide streets were built in the 18th century when noble families from across the eastern Sicily began to flock to Catania.

Catania features many Baroque buildings and churches along with a number of Roman theatres, Piazzas and beautiful palaces. Catania with its black and white buildings offers a magnificent effect. Catania also offers a choice of restaurants and large number of shops scattered around the main centre.

    Better than expected
    • I'd read a lot of negative reviews, so was fearing the worst. On arrival, as a foot passenger, you are allowed to enter the port 3 hours prior to departure. Outside the port gates, there is a small cafe, but nothing else, so don't arrive any earlier. Once through the gate, a bus takes you to check in, then onto the ferry. The cabins are fine. The food in the restaurant looked poor and was overpriced, so I didn't bother. There is a small snack bar selling sandwiches, toasties etc, at a very reasonable price. I booked a cabin, glad I did, the people with deck space or Pullman seats didn't look comfortable.

    napoli to catania overnight
    • We stayed in a quad outside cabin. first we enjoyed a small meal and wine in the dining room. the shower, though tiny, worked well. all around, i would recommend this trip as it saved us a day of driving, was comfortable enough (if you can handle the motion sickness, the ship does sway more at night) and we enjoyed beautiful views of the sunset and sunrise
