RE: vegetarian/vegan new to the area

Lucky you! Catania is maybe not my favourite Sicilian city but rather that than no Sicily at all :) Will you stay there or outside it somewhere?

Fear not, even though the Italian main courses are often meaty, the first courses are filling enough if they are pasta and pizza and there you will have plenty of veggie alternatives, although fewer vegan of course. But pasta with aubergine (although not "macaroni alla Norma" which contains cheese) is popular. Equally you can find pasta with pumpkin and nuts as in my favourite Siracusa restaurant - I'm sure there are places like that in even bigger Catania. I just cannot be more specific since it is more of a "changing from bus to train place" for me so I've never stayed long.

My best bud is a vegetarian and believe me, we have absolutely NO problems eating here in the Catania area. Okay wait, let me rephrase that ... SHE has no problems, as I'm not a vegetarian. As has been said previously, your options are endless for eating here and staying within your guidelines. Vegetables are huge here, and you'll be able to fill up on antipasti (vegetarian), your "firsts" (primi) will have lots of choices, and even pizza will give you tons of choices. If you eat seafood, there'll be no stopping you! This is an island and we have some of the most fantastic, fresh seafood. Catania's a big city and there are a bazillion and one places surrounding this city where you will be able to eat the freshest, most delicious, home-grown, farm-grown vegetables you've ever tasted.

Are you moving here to the Sigonella area, or just moving to Catania?

My wife is vegetarian and I am a cook. Italy is fantastic for the separation of vegetarian and meat/fish dishes. Relax, no mater where you are in Italy you will be fine and you will get to taste real food. j

Travel Tips for Catania

The Italian Bar

by rsleisk

A bar in Italy is usually a family owned business where you can purchase coffee drinks, wine and liquor, and pastries, gelato and painini sandwiches not like a bar in the states.

The bar is the center of social life, and like with the TV show Cheers everybody knows your name. People may visit their local bar several times a day for coffee, and again later evening for a before or after dinner drink.

Prices range based on whether you sit or stand, it will cost more to sit at a table and even more if the table is outside, than if you stand at the bar.

You pay the cashier first then take your ticket to the server. I learned this by watching the locals after standing there not being served. I loved the espressos, cappuchinos and the pastries.

Trip to Syracuse (Siracusa)

by SueMuffy

The Greek and Roman civilisations have left their mark all over the town but this represents only a part of it's history; Syracuse has been Sicilian, Arab, Roman, Byzatine, Norman, Swabian, Aragonese, Catalan and Borbonic. There are numerous archaeological remains which have withstood the passing of the centuries, national disasters and plunders of the ages.

Between Messina and Catania

by UFitsME

"Taormina in December"

I visited this beautiful location on Sicily/Italy last year (2001) in December.
My hotel, situated at Corso Umberto, let me look up to Mount Etna from breakfast room, the other window let me look down to the sea - what a contrast! This highest of all active European vulcanos was rarely to be seen that time, unfortunately, because of rainy
weather. Corso Umberto belongs to the Roman "Via Valeria", connecting Messina and Catania at east coast. Without car, it appeared to be difficult to organise trips personally. Organised journeys by bus were cancelled without exception, because of lack of interest (only few tourists being there). But there were two alternatives: going by foot uphill and downhill (same level nearly not possible), or to use public bus. My recommendations: Greek theatre, gardens of Miss Florence Trevelyan (many exotic trees) in Taormina, going uphill to Castelmola (531 m) and Castello Saraceno (398 m) by foot, downhill to the marvellous island "Isola Bella" and to the sea resort Spisone. Really nice, but a little bit demanding for physical constitution. Public bus is a really cheap way of transportation there: Giardini-Naxos, Messina, Catania, old Greek Syracusa, all of them reachable for little money, in short time and by trips offering marvellous views.
