Catania, a lovely city on the east coast of Sicily, has as its background the Ionian Sea, and on the opposite side you can see the bad-tempered Mount Etna. The city may look a bit touristic in some streets and a little bit too busy and overcrowded -- it is one of the largest cities in Italy -- but you will love it after starting to explore! The city is well developed and is a busy, touristic place, mostly in summer (July and August).
The city is nice to explore, so take a walk to the center of the city and be amazed with the many historical buildings -- the Baroque city center of Catania is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- and if you like churches, in Catania you can find dozens of them. Although, one of the most remarkable place lies just outside the city -- the Roman ruins, with an amazingly well-preserved amphitheater.
Nearby is Mount Etna, a still-active volcano that has a history of eruptions, earthquakes, and destruction of neighboring cities -- it is definitely worth a visit. When you get to Mount Etna, there is a really steep, rocky road that marks the beginning of the best trekking path in the area; it will allow you to go to the crater rim and have an amazing view of the lava flows, other small cones in the main cone -- some of them still active -- and the surroundings of this impressive volcano. It's the must-do in this area.
The easiest way to get to Catania is by car and booking a rental car in advance is something you should consider, especially in summer because there can be a shortage of cars on the entire island.
Since it's one of the biggest cities on the island, it won't be a problem to find hostels in Catania. You can expect staff with good English and good facilities. Catania's hostels are also a good place to ask information about the best way to go to Mount Etna and can give you some valuable insight about the city.
