Travelling towards the "open city"

Ferries to Catania (Sicily)

Sail with TTTLines ferries to Catania, departing from the port of Naples, along the line connecting Campania directly to Sicily. With the Autostrade d'Amare, the Port of Catania is the entryway for your holiday on the island.

Travelling aboard our ships will surprise you: during the crossing, you will be able to stay in comfortable cabins and enjoy the services onboard, such as bars, restaurants, shops and dedicated children's play areas.

Not to be missed is the pleasure of admiring the enchanting landscapes that characterise the Tyrrhenian and Sicilian coasts, from the panoramic decks on our ferries.

Travelling towards the "open city"

Catania was a Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Swabian, Angevin, Aragonese, and finally a Spanish city.

It was a city that was open and tolerant, and still is so to this day, given its ancient traditions. Catania is a symbol of rebirth, having been destroyed so many times by its conquerors, and by the volcano Etna that towers above and dominates the city that has risen from the rubble with perseverance and courage.

Today, visitors disembarking in Catania can immerse themselves in a town with a Baroque feel, after having been redesigned by illustrious architects.

One of the most fascinating times to visit the city is during the Sant'Agata festival. From 3rd to 5th February, Catania celebrates its patron saint with great festivities. A procession with silver fern arranged around a bust containing the Holy Relics is tirelessly followed by hundreds of devoted locals. Those taking part wear the traditional white tunic with a cord around the waist, a black cap, bandana and white gloves, whilst holding onto two cords that extend over 100 metres. The procession is followed by eleven "cerei" or "cannalori", being large wooden boards carried on the shoulders and painted with representations of the artisan and trade guilds of the city as a sign of devotion.
