The Best Catania Luxury Hotels

Catania
Catania, set on the eastern coast of Sicily, lies at the foot of the Volcano of Etna and is bathed by the sea. Transformed by the earthquakes which over the centuries have struck this part of the island – legend has it that no less than seven catastrophic episodes occurred - Catania remains a fascinating Baroque city: the Cathedral of Sant’Agata and the small and large churches and stately buildings such as the Palace of the Elephants – today seat of the Municipality, the University Palace and the San Giuliano Palace. But the pulsing heart of the city runs along Via Etnea, which crosses the city from Piazza del Duomo to the Tondo Gioeni and includes some of the most beautiful squares, heritage buildings, gardens and other sites of interest. The fascinating streets of the city centre are also the hub of its night life, with a host of typical restaurants, bars and watering holes ranging from stylish to casual. Then there is the sea, which bathes the 65 km of Catania’s coast, a host of splendid multi-hued bays and inlets, alternating with fine golden sands and basalt rocks, set against blue sea and sky.

Where to sleep in Catania
Catania offers a great range of accommodation options to guarantee you a dream holiday. Just choose to meet your needs: a hotel set amidst the woods and vineyards of the Etna Park, a hotel in the wonderful Baroque historic centre, or if you prefer, a seaside resort, with views of ever-changing blue.

When to visit Catania
From mid-June to mid-September it’s beach time in Catania, but holidaymakers tend to opt for July and August, when temperatures reach their peak. Summers are long, hot and dry, but cooled by soft sea breezes. The hinterland has a cooler climate, much appreciated by sports buffs and trekkers, who usually choose spring and autumn for their visits.
