While I prefer Palermo slightly a bit more than Catania, Catania is a very nice city and is very easy to get around. There are lots of great restaurants, the city is easy to get to by air, and there is a lot to see and do. I like the openness of the city with its many large piazzas, and the city is not too far from Etna and the beach/port.Recommended for:

Theres's something absolutely liberating about showing up in a foreign country with no guidebook, no plan and no idea on what to see or do - exactly what me and my Czech girlfriend did with Catania. She picked it off the map because it had a nice ring to it and surprisingly enough, we were not disappointed - topless sunbathing during the day, the ritual promenade in the afternoon (followed by a siesta, of course) and uproarious nights of dancing in the streets on a couple of carafes of Italian wine all come to mind when I think of that time. So I guess sometimes the best plan is to have none at all :-)Recommended for:

I've lived in Catania since October 2009, and am constantly discovering new things to love about it. No, it's not the most beautiful city in the world, but it's less touristy than Taormina and Ortigia, which means that there are more people living there 100% of the time. This means that there are supermarkets, day-to-day shops and proper local bars rather than simply overpriced places aimed at people who are only going to be there for a week. If you want to settle in somewhere for a little while and actually get to know it, then Catania is a great place to do it. It's busy and chaotic, but you'll never once get the chance to be bored.
