So I spent a year living in Catania, teaching English, and traveling Sicily. It was my home base it's a heck of a town.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Arancini, Rockin' Nightlife, Sicilianita'
  • Cons:Soot, Urban Confusion, Occasional Fiery Destruction
  • In a nutshell:It's like Naples, but harder to love...

    Hi, really great and well written tips on Catania. I've been to Catania, but I seem to have missed a lot. Should have got a member in VT sooner :)

    All of the placards are in Italian only! Several employees speak English though. It is still well worth the trip!
