Port of CATANIA
The port of Catania is the east coast of Sicily and offers connections to the mainland and the islands. Catania is a very old city founded by the Greeks in 729 BC, its first port was built in 1438 by King Alfonso of Aragon. Unfortunately it was destroyed several times by storms and earthquakes and then rebuilt from time to time. The expansion and modernization of this port took place in 1800, then in 1933 when a tidal wave deeply damaged this area of the city.
During the Second World War the port was bombed and was once again rendered unusable. Today the port of Catania is an important hub for both commercial and tourist ships, its strategic location makes it useful for travel in both the Tyrrhenian Sea and in the Mediterranean. The intense tourist development in Sicily has been driven by the natural and historical beauty of this island. It has led to the construction of a marina, able to deal with all the traffic coming through the city.
