Location

Catania, Sicilia, Italy

Catania is nowadays one of the most vibrant cities in Italy and offers a variety of entertaining activities. It is very much a 24 hour town and thanks to its local traditional shops and its traditional markets, which still compete with the big chains, as well as being a popular destination for university students.
One of the coolest areas for evening entertainment is without a doubt, the “Golden block” in the historic part of town, situated between Piazza Duomo, Piazza Manganelli and Piazza Teatro Massimo. Amongst the baroque architecture, you will find night clubs, always very busy, which during the summer time make use of the outdoor spaces and transform themselves into the famous “Caffe’ Concerto”, a mix of music, shows and multimedia events. The “Caffe’ Concerto” were inaugurated 20 years ago by the local council in collaboration with the local commercial association and are responsible for birth of the “MOVIDA” in the historic centre. As you can see, the entertaining options are never-ending, there are theatres, disco clubs, wine bars and many other shops ready to satisfy any need and desire, whether it be in Arab, Japanese, Irish or Brazilian Style! Many places also offer live music.
