Catania International Airport receives nearly 7 million passengers every year, allowing them to land in the picturesque territory of Sicily in the vicinity of Mount Etna. Unfortunately, this natural attraction cost the island dearly - in 1669 a volcanic eruption occurred, the consequences of which can still be seen. But the views of the formidable and bewitching volcano, opening from the portholes when approaching the island, attract more and more tourists. By renting a car on Bookingcar.su, you can travel all over Sicily and enjoy your holidays on the best beaches by the warm sea, visiting unique historical and cultural monuments and the most beautiful and unforgettable corners.
Catania's second largest harbor on the island appeared in the small village of Fontanarossa in 1924. It was actively used for military purposes during the Second World War, but after it was abandoned until 1955, when it was decided to make it a passenger. Several large-scale reconstructions allowed the airport to meet the requirements of the Schengen agreement, as well as to get a new terminal, which is especially necessary in the summer with an abundance of charter flights. Now the terminal is named after the Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini and is ready to offer 6 million guests quick service and a comfortable stay while waiting for the flight.
If you rented a car, when leaving the airport terminal, you can almost immediately be on the A19 motorway, through which you can quickly get to Catania or Palermo. The city center can also be reached by public transport - the Alibas bus, departing every 20 minutes from a stop at the arrivals hall. However, it is worth considering that buses run only during the day, and after midnight you will need a taxi.
