Sicily 6: Catania, Sicily’s 2nd Largest City

Catania rests on the east coast of Sicily in the foothills of Mount Aetna. Here are some photos of the city, including the opera house and a fountain that struck me as almost comically candid.

The Opera House named after the composer Bellini. No such thing in Sicily as a major city without an opera house.

The fountain again.
And again!
