British Airways operates Sicilian-bound flights to Catania that land at Catania International Airport, just three miles south of Catania's city centre. Stroll through streets lined with Baroque buildings after your flight as you make your way to Catania's hub, Piazza del Duomo. Admire the square's cute Elephant Fountain, with its perkily upturned trunk, and catch a glimpse of Mount Etna looming over Catania. Then settle into a traditional trattoria restaurant after your flight to Catania to enjoy seafood fresh off the boat from Catania's bustling fish market.
After leaving your flight to Catania, it's easy to catch a shuttle bus to Piazza del Duomo square in the heart of Catania. Buses run every 20 minutes and also stop at Catania's train station on Piazza Giovanni XXIII. It's around a 20-minute ride from Catania airport after your flight. Allow about the same amount of time if you're taking a taxi into Catania after your flight.
Wander around Catania's 18th-century streets after your Catania flight, targeting Via Etnea and Via Crociferi for the finest architecture. Step inside the immense Cathedral on Piazza del Duomo to see the richly decorated chapel of St Agatha, Catania's patron saint. Photograph the ruins of Catania's Roman Theatre and Roman Amphitheatre, then take a relaxing walk through Villa Bellini's landscaped gardens after Catania flights. When you catch your flight home from Catania, fill your suitcase with Sicilian painted pottery and boxes of Sicily's marzipan and almond sweets.
