Sicily's second largest city is striking in terms of the youthfulness of its inhabitants, particularly at passeggiata time. One might almost forget the imposing presence of Mt Etna, or even the inexhaustible heritage of late Baroque architecture that earned Catania its place on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. The birthplace of Vincenzo Bellini and Giovanni Verga is one of the most attractive cities in Sicily.
