Flights to Catania
The island of Sicily really is at the crossroads of the Mediterranean and therefore makes it the perfect place for catching cheap flights to Catania through CheapTickets.nl. Just a few miles from the mainland of Italy and only 155 miles from the coast of North Africa, Sicily is full of natural beauty and a mixture of earlier civilisations.
Situated on the eastern coast and fringed by the Ionian Sea, Catania is the second largest city on the island, after Palermo, the capital. It is also at the foot of Mt Etna, the highest and most active volcano in Europe, so expect fantastic views as you come in on flights to Catania. Once you have landed from your flights Catania is a mere two miles away.
Must see spots in Catania
Mt Etna is a hard one to miss and a must for climbing because it is a volcano and the views at the summit are stunning. There is either a cable car you can take, hire 4WD vans, or if you are feeling energetic, you can hike which, from the northern approach, takes about three hours. For most people on flights to Catania, this is the main reason for visiting.
Within the city there are many other sights to explore. Get your bearings in the Piazza del Duomo in the old centre. The square is surrounded by exquisite 18th century buildings and a spectacular cathedral. The Duomo has been rebuilt twice after earthquakes, the last of which was in 1693.
The Botanical Gardens north of the centre are famous for their cacti, and the Museum of the Sea honours the lives and work of fishermen and their community, many of whom are clustered in this part of town.
