Catania, the Milan of the South
Only a brief mention of Catania is enough to arouse aromas and typical Mediterranean flavours, where the tomatoes offer a sweet and soft taste, basil a scent of freshness and freshly caught fish melts in your mouth. Amidst a choice of fresh granita, homemade ice cream and countless delicacies of almonds or pistachios, the city offers a base for interesting cultural tours, evolving into the ideal destination for all the family or simply a moment of relaxation in solitude.
Apart from the classic sights, such as The Dome, Etnea Street, the Greco Roman Theatre and the various churches scattered throughout the city, Catania is also a meeting point for youngsters from all over South Italy, with beach parties and cocktails at sunset. The Mediterranean climate and the peak of Etna renders this place unique and not to be missed. Amongst its features you can feast upon the small fishing village of San Giovanni Li Cuti, which still embodies the beauty and simplicity of local life; not far away lies the Fish Market which represents another hidden gem, where you are able to taste freshly caught fish.
Catania is a city to reveal, discover and live – a rented apartment from Halldis is the best way to become addicted to its vitality and to immerse yourself in its culture, still firmly rooted to its traditions but open to a modern future.
