Discover Sicilia with our rental car in Catania
Our headquarters is located 15 minutes from the historic center of Catania, a gem of eastern Sicily dominated by Etna.
Pebble beaches, small bays alternating with dark stretches of eruptive rocks, very high coastline overlooking the sea, faraglioni rising from the sea. In the heart of the historic center rises the ancient Ursino Castle of the Norman period.
Nearby in the Piazza del Duomo is the emblem of Catania: the Elephant Fountain by Vaccarini, the black lava elephant, also called «Liotru» by the people of Catania, which dates back to Roman times.
Through a staircase you reach the fish market of Catania. In the morning you can watch the lively life of the «pescheria», the food market of the city. And if you are greedy do not miss the «minnuzze»: small cassata in the shape of breasts, sweets typical of the feast of Sant’Agata that recall the horrible amputation of the breasts that the Catanese underwent during her martyrdom in the third century. d.
