Catania is a busy port, situated along Sicily's northeast coast, on the Gulf of Catania. It was destroyed several times by Mt. Etna eruptions and an earthquake in 1693. Today it is graced by lush parks, spacious piazzas and wide boulevards. Tourists may choose from the medieval power of 11th-century cathedral and Castello Ursino, Baroque fantasy of San Nicolo, or return to city's ancient origins with a visit to Greek theatre. The Greek glories of Taormina featuring unforgettable views of Mt. Etna are just a short drive up the coast.
Catania was established as a Greek colony in 8th century BC. During the First Punic War, in 263 BC, it was captured by the Romans. In the late 11th century Catania was ravaged by the Normans. It sustained severe bomb damage in World War II.
