Bars, beach disco clubs, pubs with live music and crowds of people enjoying the night out – all of that makes Catania unique and vivid. Certainly, this city is also famous for its history. The city is situated close to the volcano Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. After the eruption in 17 century Catania was totally destroyed and then rebuilt. The presence of Etna is clearly visible in the architecture of the city. The buildings of the historical centre were made of black lava stone and contrasting white limestone.

Province of Catania is full of other places of interest. Close to the slopes of Etna there are incredibly beautiful towns which can boast long and interesting history. In Randazzo situated 754 m above sea level there are splendid churches and houses which seem to be brought in our times directly from the past.
