The black pearl
Situated at the foot of the impressive Mount Etna and overlooking the sea, you will see Catania. The city was founded by the Greeks in 729 BC and has a rich history in terms of cultural heritage. Almost entirely rebuilt in the 18th century, after that the earthquake destroyed it in 1693, today looks beautiful in its Sicilian Baroque style. Places of interest include the Odeon, situated in the historic center, next to the Roman theater, the amphitheater, the Ursino castle, and the elephant fountain.
