    Catania

    Welcome firstly to Catania! If you want to know something about the city, here is a suggested audiotour from izi.TRAVEL! As you will see, Catania is an incredible city, which in the past was able to survive to dozens of tragedies, from eruptions to earthquakes. The most terrible one was the 1693, which destroyed many cities and villages in the south-east corner of the island. But, again, Catania was able to wipe up and rebuild itself more beautiful than before, becoming a unique Baroque town, declared as a World Heritage Site in the UNESCO list. Despite everything, there are many archaeological remains of the city, first Greek and then Roman, which was certainly one of the most beautiful Roman cities in southern Italy. We will discover together the remains of its theater!

    Covered by houses from the Middle Ages to the present day, undermined several times by the earthquake and then the subject of demanding restorations and systematic excavations for 35 years. In Catania, the archaeological complex of the Greek-Roman theater and the odeon unforeseenly reveals itself among the buildings in Vittorio Emanuele II Street, like a precious gem that re-emerges from oblivion in all its grandeur. If you want to better imagine how it would appeared in the Roman times, here is a 3D reconstruction!

    Make a stop to savor the creative Sicilian cuisine inside a "buatta", what in Sicilian dialect is the tin container that contains exquisite traditional foods and more! Buatta, in this case, is therefore a collector of ideas, of Italian culinary excellence, of recipes prepared calmly and offered in an impeccable way. To all this, combine the highest quality craft beers, a youthful and creative atmosphere and raw materials that enhance the strong flavors of the largest island in Italy.
