Location and Resort:
Catania is Sicily's second largest city after Palermo and is the commercial and industrial heartbeat of the south eastern part of the island. In the shadow of Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna, this fascinating southern Italian city was founded as the Greek colony Katane in around 730 BC.
A must see is the Cathedral Dome of St Agatha - named after the Patron Saint of Catania who was martyred here in the 3rd century AD and whose veil is said to protect the city from eruptions of nearby Etna. Other popular sights include the statue of the elephant right by the cathedral, the botanical gardens and Castel Ursino.

There is an outdoor freshwater pool available during the summer with sun loungers and parasols sent around the edge.
