Car hires in Catania: practical information

Where to rent a car in Catania



Catania is right at the foot of Mount Etna in Sicily, a car that is best explored by car hire, especially if you want to get out and explore at your own pace. Pick up a rental car at Catania Airport from Hertz, Dollar, Europcar, National, Avis, among others. Catania car hires are generally cheaper at the airport than in the city centre and can cost as little as €10 a day!




Driving in Catania: parking and other tips



Sicily is connected by only 4 motorways so it’s pretty difficult to get lost. Remember that mountain roads are generally slower but will offer better views than the motorways.

Keep in mind: Catania is a maze of one-way roads and it’s quite complicated, even for locals. The city centre is also pedestrianised, making parking nearby pretty difficult with spaces being scarce. Ideally, book a hotel in Catania that offers parking.




Road trips from Catania: what to do, what to see



Trapani Salt Flats

Catania to Trapani

Salt is a simple product that we take advantage of but there’s complex process behind how it’s made. Visit the salt flats in Trapani to see how salt is made in the traditional way by sweeping it up when the tide rolls out and grinding it down with windmills.

Erice

Catania to Erice

This small town on the western coast of Sicily is the highest town on the island and is famous for its sandy beaches and white Moorish architecture. Plan to spend at least an entire day there, soaking up the sun on the beach and enjoying some traditional cuisine in a town restaurant.

Mount Etna

Catania to Mount Etna

It’s hard to miss Etna, she’s the largest active volcano in Europe and is still spewing lava. If you’re lucky, she’ll be having a quiet day and your tour won’t be cancelled. The top is 3,323m high and it can be cold up there, even in summer.
