About Catania, Sicily

Steep, rugged Sicily had bred a race of fierce, funny and passionate people. From this important port, drive up the coast to visit Taormina. First Greeks, then Romans used this as a place of worship and reward. View the temples and the theater, Mt. Etna in the distance, or take a stroll and shop in the little village before you leave.

We booked a "Godfather" tour through Sicily Shore Excursions with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the small towns, church, cafe and train station where parts of the movies were shot. It was also nice to get into the small towns of Sicily.

Are there restaurants and shops near the port. Thinking about enjoying this city on our own since time seems to be limited. Would love to hear from you since we are first time cruisers.


Beautiful port with the city spread out behind it. Did an excursion halfway up Mount Etna and Taormina. Cloud cover prevented us getting clear views on Etna, but taormina was Stunning. Did a walking tour. The place is beautiful.

Trip to Taormina was great. Ampitheater is cool and the views are the best in Sicily. They have many shops on the way up and down also. Another great place where we did not get nearly enough time.
