About Catania Airport
Catania–Fontanarossa Airport, also known as Vincenzo Bellini Airport, is located 8 km southwest of Catania, the second largest city on the Italian island of Sicily. The airport is named as a tribute to the celebrated opera composer Vincenzo Bellini, who was born in Catania. This is Sicily's busiest airport and the country's sixth busiest, with more than 6.4 million passengers annually.
Catania may appear a bit rough around the edges when you first arrive, but it has an infectious energy and an undeniably beautiful historic heart that will captivate you instantly. Opulent palazzi rise above baroque piazzas in the UNESCO-listed centre, and the busy fish market is one of the most vibrant in Sicily. Then there are the hundreds of restaurants, bars, and clubs, as well as a thriving student population to keep the place buzzing. In the background, Mount Etna looms and stunning scenery provides a breathtaking backdrop.
