Taxi fare Catania to Taormina


Catania lies at the foot of Mount Etna, which in some areas is referred to as the “lava town”. It is one of the hottest settlements in Italy, the temperature can reach up to 40 ° C in summer. The city has been hit by many trials over the years, several volcanic eruptions and earthquakes have destroyed the settlement. After all this, it was rebuilt in baroque style, thanks to which many beautiful buildings welcome the visitors – many of which were built from lava.

The main square of Catania is relatively small but still very glamorous. Here is the cathedral of Santa Agata, which died of martyr death in memory of Saint Aguadilla. It is home to the Archbishop of Catania, and is also home to the famous Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini. Be sure to visit the Massimo Bellini theater, which was built in neo-Renaissance style and opened in 1890 to the general public. The Ursino Castle built from lava stone was made in 1239 and consists of four wings, forming an inner courtyard square.

If we take the direction of Taormina or Cefalu, maybe we are in Palermo, we will not miss the discovery of the downtown of Catania from our Sicilian adventures. Catania’s pedestrian area is also worth visiting in the evenings – taking advantage of the milder heat to admire the illuminated facades or try out two local restaurants.
