Catania Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Catania is overshadowed by Mount Etna, which has on several occasions sent lava flowing within the city walls, which are themselves built from volcanic rock. The colours of this Baroque-style city are predominantly black and white, as can be seen in the elephant fountain in Piazza Duomo. The birthplace of the musician Vincenzo Bellini and the writer Giovanni Verga, Catania is a lively, working-class town, with a busy port and high-tech industries which have earned it the name of Etna Valley.
