Malta Catania Ferry
Malta is an archipelago of 7 islands with a hot Mediterranean climate that reaches an average of 30C in the summer. Malta is known for its intriguing 7,000 year history, and it has palaces, cathedrals and forts to show for it, as well as the incredible Megalithic Temples which are said to be the oldest free-standing structures on Earth as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The islands are also ideal for scuba-diving with deep-sea wrecks, caves and colourful reefs to explore that are full of octopus, stingrays and dolphins. Malta also has a love of music and entertainment; there are live bands in every town, weekly concerts, open-air theatres, operas, casinos, clubs, cinemas...the list goes on!
And amongst the lush fields, bustling towns and great beaches, sports fans can play golf, tennis, squash, swimming and cricket, as well as more adventurous sports such as paragliding, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water-skiing and sailing. Malta really is the place for everyone.
Catania is the second largest city in Sicily and is bursting with life. Situated at the foot of the famous Mount Etna volcano, Catania is primarily seen as a university city, with many students in the area and fantastic nightlife, including clubs, bars and restaurants. Some tourists may know the city for the famous Elephant Fountain, whereas some may know it for its interesting, somewhat out-of-place Greek-style temples, that still look incredible even though they are thousands of years old.
The city is an exciting mix of Baroque architecture and urban design, and this is seen in the Piazza del Duomo, a delightful town square that is dominated by the cathedral, one of the biggest and most beautiful buildings in Catania. In the centre of town is the main shopping street of Via Etnea, popular with everyone of all ages, and the Teatro Massimo neighbourhood which is known for being one of the liveliest and busiest neighbourhoods on the island. For beach lovers, La Plaja is a pleasant beach along the south coast of the Catanian bay.
