Once a monastery, today this beautiful building hosts a section of the University of Catania (I also studied there :) ) It smells purity and culture and gives you the idea of the power that the city had in 1700. A true gem.

The most beautiful Baroque Palace of the city. Even the british band Coldplay chose it to film one of their music videos (Violet Hill). You can barely see it from the street, but once inside, you'll know it's worth the visit. The visits are organized by the funny owner of the Palace, Mr Ruggero, one of the descendents of the Princes of Biscari.

One of the few buildings which survived after the eruption of Etna of 1669 and the earthquake of 1693. It's a medieval Castle built during the reign of Federico di Svevia. Nowadays it hosts the civic museum as well as interesting temporary art exhibitions.

It's impossible to see it from the street, you need to enter. The ticket price is very cheap though. This beautiful roman theatre survived for Centuries and despite eruptions, earthquakes and wars it's still there showing off its magnificence. In May it hosts shows and concerts.

Do you know there is an underground river flowing under the streets of Catania? It was covered by the lava of Etna in 1669, but it's still there! You can see it flowing under this fountan and inside a cave, which happens to be under a restaurant in Piazza Currò.

One of the biggest Churches in Catania. The project was so huge that it was never completed. Outside the facade is incomplete. Inside, not only it's a beautiful church, but also it hosts on of the largest and most complex organs in Europe.
