"Perla dai 1000 colori"
Catania, with his millennial history, is the native or adoptive home town of some of the most relevant artistic characters of Italian cultural landscape, like Vincenzo Bellini the famous composer, and it is a true triumph of beauty, art, colors and scents. The city, placed at the bottom of Etna, is a true compendium of wonders and diverse influences: Arabic, Norman, Romans, byzantine and baroque.
The splendor and opulence of the past are still visible throughout the city streets, where numerous and remarkable evidences from the Greek and Roman periods, like the amphitheater and some thermal constructions build with lava stone.
The central road, Etnea Street, is paved with lava stone too, and it is the main path that leads from the Duomo Cathedral to the Volcano and it is exactly where Palace Catania by UNA Esperienze is placed. Along Etnea street people can find charming buildings in Sicilian baroque style, designed by the two architects Giovanni Battista Vaccarini and Francesco Battaglia, along with the famous Villa Bellini, enriched by fountains, kiosks and superb decorations.
Everything but boring, like its own city, the waterfront of Catania faces an unforgettable coastline.
