Mercati Generali

Arguably the finest nightlife establishment in Sicily (and a solid contender for being in the top worldwide), Mercati Generali is located about 10 kilometres from the city centre, but is certainly worth the drive. The crowd it attracts is rather posh, but the vibe remains relaxed and party-like.

Bars & Nightlife

Catania is a student town, and as such, boasts quite a few hip bars and clubs frequented by the local youths. A regional speciality in terms of nightlife is the so-called "lido" – beach venues well-visited by tourists and locals for sunbathing, swimming and water sports during the day, and transforming into bars and beach clubs after sundown.
