Catania is not imaginable if you don’t visit yourself. “Melior de cinere surgo”, is written on the Porta Garibaldi in Catania; the words of the “Araba Fenice” which summarizes why the city was always reborn more and more beautiful. Destroyed 9 times by earthquakes, eruptions, invasions, 9 times it was rebuilt more beautiful than before. The Catania that we see now is that of the last reconstruction, of 1693, when a violent earthquake razed it to the ground. We were right in the Baroque style, with which almost all the noble palaces and the city churches were rebuilt. Luckily untouched since then, today they represent an architectural complex of exceptional value so that the historic center of Catania is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. We will lend a hand you to reveal the city of a thousand contrasts, starting with the strong voices of the fish market “LA PESCHERIA”, famous all over the world. A few steps away, in the heart of the wonders of the Baroque of Catania, “PIAZZA DUOMO” with the beautiful CATHEDRAL and after admiring the city from the baroque dome of the abbey of S. Agata, we will touch the grandeur of the Roman era with the visit of the GREEK ROMAN THEATER and the annexed ODEON.
