Italy by Rail and Ship: Catania, Sicily 

A walk through the town of Catania, Sicily with their fish market, Duomo square, Roman ruins and churches galore.  We spent about four hours in port last Thursday.  The next time perhaps we will do the day trip tour up to Mount Etna, which is Europe’s largest active volcano, but honestly were just looking for a some low key things to do that would not take too much energy. Wandering around town fit the bill perfectly, as we were able to get back to the ship for a late lunch and use the Aqua Spa facility.

Duomo and the main Square

Fish market bleeding into the fruit and vegetable market. There are also plenty of butcher shops spilling out from the market

These are ruins from the Roman amphitheatre, which is buried underneath the city and partly exposed for visitors to check out
