Museum of the Landing in Sicily 1943

Sicily played an important role in the liberation from the German occupation during World War II. This museum (Museo Storico dello Sbarco in Sicilia 1943) displays memories and history from that time, and often leaves its visitors emotionally concerned.

Do & See

Catania boasts a plethora of incredible cultural sights. Pay a visit to Piazza del Duomo, marvel at the splendid Catania Cathedral, and walk down the historic Via dei Crociferi (named a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Catania's location by the warm sea makes it a perfect destination for holiday-makers, and hiking trips can be made to the (still active) Etna volcano. In the vicinity, small towns such as the beautiful Taormina or Caltagirone make for ideal day-trip destinations.
