Your Destination —
UNESCO awarded the city's Baroque centre the status of a World Heritage Site. There are countless Greek and Roman sites to visit and Baroque churches and palaces to sample. Don't miss the city's emblematic monument dating from 1736, the Fontane dell' Elefante, a comical black lava statue of a smiling elephant topped by a white obelisk. Also known as U Liotro in Sicilian, the statue stands in Piazza del' Duomo.
The Grand Hotel Excelsior Catania is conveniently situated in the city centre near the railway station and within walking distance of monuments such as the city's cathedral, Duomo di Catania, the Fountain of the Elephant and the Teatro Massimo Bellini opera house.
Make use of the optional car hire where you can travel to and from these spectacular sights conveniently.
