Catania Wheelchair Accessible Tours
Catania wheelchair accessible tours is for anyone who longs to know Sicily.
Of course, Palermo, Messina, Syracuse, Trapani and the other provinces are all worth a visit, and yet we must recognize that the city of Etna has something more.
Destroyed 9 times by earthquakes, eruptions, invasions, 9 times it has been rebuilt more beautiful than before.
Catania we see now is that of the last reconstruction, in 1693, when a violent earthquake razed it to the ground.
We were in full Baroque style, a style in which almost all the noble palaces and town churches were rebuilt.
Precisely for this reason, the phoenix, the mythological bird of fire carved in Porta Garibaldi, is considered a symbol of Catania.
Volcanic, lively, noisy and welcoming at the same time.
This town has all the characteristics of a city in Southern Italy, those where a foreigner is simultaneously confused but also at home.
Lying at the foot of the majestic Mount Etna which, with its 3,326 meters above sea level, is among the highest volcanoes in Europe.
Catania slopes gently towards the Ionian sea.

The main cultural and tourist attractions are concentrated in the historic center which, for the uninitiated, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Start by going to Piazza del Duomo, which is, like anywhere in Sicily, the heart of the city.
Right in the center of the square, you can admire the emblem of the city.
The Elephant Fountain.
This fountain depicts an elephant carved in black lava, above which an Egyptian obelisk stands.
Legend has it that this statue has the power to appease the wrath of the Etna volcano.
See the Vara and imagine what Catania becomes during the feast of Sant’Agata.
Browse the stalls of the Pescheria behind the Duomo, because it’s amazing how the market is in the middle of the city.
Do not miss to visit the Roman Theater, incredibly incorporated between the houses, amazing in its network of undergrounds.
Built in the Catania Baroque style, Porta Uzeda is certainly one of the main symbols of the city.
It was built in 1695 in honor of the Spanish viceroy Paceco de Uzeda for having promoted the reconstruction of Catania after the earthquake.
Ursino Castle was built between 1239 and 1250 at the push of Frederick II to defend the city from attacks from the sea.
Following the volcanic eruption of 1669 it was entirely surrounded by lava which, cooling down, gave birth to new spaces.
