My first visit to Sicily is not until later this month, but I've read good things about the Politi Residence, so I'm staying there. Look at hostel booking websites; many will offer extra options like apartments and budget hotels too. Good luck :) If the Politi Res. is awful, I'll be sure to post and let you know.

Travel Tips for Catania

Cattedrale di S. Agata


Beautiful cathedral in the Piazza Duomo. Constructed between 1070 and 1093. G. Palazzolo and architect G. B. Vaccarini restored the cathedral after a 1693 earthquake. Dedicated to the martyred Agata it also has relics inside.

The Duomo


The Duomo of Catania is dedicated to St. Agatha (Agata), and houses her relics. Her festival is by far the most important civic event in the city, as well as one of the biggest and most elaborate Catholic saint's festivals in the entire world.

It is often refered to as a 'Fortress Cathedral', as it played an integral part as watchtower and its southern wall is in fact a part of the city's ancient defensive wall.
It too was rebuilt by Vaccarini after the earthquake of 1693, as the integral centerpiece of the piazza, although remains of the Norman cathedral that preceded it are still visible on the interior (the pointed Norman arches of the transept).

Interesting things inside: the relics of St. Agatha, the Body of Cardinal Dusmet, the Tomb of Vincenzo Bellini.

Interesting things nearby: see Piazza Duomo.

One of Italy's undiscovered gems

"A city that's got everything"

It's far away from the main tourist routes but it's near everything. Half an hour from Southern Italy's tallest mountain (the still very active volcano Etna) and a short shot from some of the best beaches and cliffs of Sicily, Catania truly has everything. The food is fantastic, the climate is excellent, people are very friendly (at least they are once you break the ice) and its late baroque city centre is one of the finest I've seen. My expectations were really low when I got there (and were reinforced after seeing the airport, a real disaster) but I'm now definitely in love with this city and everything it has.

"Working in Catania"

I come to Catania at least once a month for business reasons. The city bet a lot on steel and heavy industry during the seventies and eighties. The results of this ill choice can be easily seen in the crumbling factories that populate a large part of the "Zona Industriale", the industrial campus that was built in the meadow just behind the airport.

However, largely thanks to investments by ST microelectronics, the city is seeing a new light these days, and a new high-tech center was born on the ashes of the steel factories.

Working in Catania is excellent. Despite stereotypes, Sicilians are hard-working types who put the maximum effort in achieving their objectives.

Also, the city is easy enough to navigate, especially if you move outside the rush hour, and provides for plenty of opportunities to break a long working day with a relaxing night.

Its airport is very well connected to the two main hubs of Italy (Rome and Milan), and hopes flourish that it will even start functioning well after the neverending enlargement that it seems to be undergoing.
