Car Rental Sicily Catania
Catania is located on the east coast of Sicily, Italy at the foot of Mount Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe that is still active, facing the Ionian Sea, between Messina and Syracuse and is the second largest city in Sicily, after Palermo. The airport of Catania - Vincenzo Bellini Airport (CTA) is located 4.3 km (2.6 miles) south west of the city and with a rental car you can start your holidays easy from the first moment you arrive in the city.
Catania was founded by the Greeks in the 8th century BC and was covered seven times by the lava flow of Mount Etna and rebuilt. For that reason there is a dark color of most monuments and buildings in town. Some of them are of plaster painted to look as lava. Black and white are the two dominating colors of the city that combine to produce a magnificent effect. The earthquake of 1693 was one of the most significant events that shaped Catania as it destroyed most of south-eastern Sicily. The town was rebuilt in the Baroque style, and it was during this era that many of the finest buildings of the town came into being.
