Catania, a notable metropolis of Sicily

Catania is offbeat for many reasons – its historic earthquake, the repercussions and the recuperation. The city has seen many phases and has emerged as a notable metropolis of Sicily. Although mainly famed for its gorgeous baroque architecture, there are amazing contrasts in terms of attractions in the city. On one side, there is a pulsating downtown with a lively night life, while on the other hand, there is a bunch of filthy buildings and forsaken residences. Nevertheless, Catania is charming in its own way. Some of the sights and places to enjoy are the Elephant Fountain, La Plaja, the Riviera dei Ciclopi, and the vibrant food and fish markets.
