Things to do in Sicily

Catania

In 2006, Catania emerged from several years of restoration. Buildings have been refurbished, the central Piazza del Duomo is now closed to traffic, and crime has been reduced. Every morning, the tourist board gives free city tours.

Mt. Etna

This active volcano is one of the world’s largest. Walk across lava dunes and, when the lava isn’t too hot, climb near the central crater. Non-climbers can get close to the action by riding the Circumetnea railway (www.circumetnea.it).
