More About Catania

Catania is located on the eastern coast of Sicily in Italy and is the second largest city in Sicily. Catania is a major transport hub, university center and economic hub in the area and is known for its active nightlife and vibrant culture. The name Catania derives from the Sicilian term Katane, that means "flaying knife, grater" because the city rises over a bristling lava stone land.

Catania is also known for its architecture which is mostly Baroque and urban style due to the major devastation that it faced in the earthquake of 1693. Catania attracts thousands of tourists from around Italy as well as other countries through the world.

Catania is a true city of the volcano. Much of it is constructed from the lava that poured down the mountain and engulfed the city in the 1669 eruption in which nearly 12,000 people lost their lives.
